Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

TV MIKE AND THE SCARECROWS

Out at Sea

2014-10-06

TV Mike and the Scarecrows' brand of rock-n-roll is the type that your parents might rave about after a drunken night out at the local bar.  That is...nasally lead vocals backed by a female singer and mid-tempo classic rock backing such as that found at any backwoods bar with a live band.  Sure you can dance to it.  Oakland, CA band, TV Mike and the Scarecrows, is indebted to Jimmy Buffet in its tone and to the band's music teachers in its effort and execution. (They hit the right notes.) There is nothing the least bit interesting here. The best thing about the band's latest EP, Out At Sea,  is that it's only five tracks long.
