Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

THE VERBS

Trip

2010-02-06

Percussionist/producer Steve Jordan has again teamed up with ex-Antionettes guitarist/singer Meegan Voss to create The Verbs' second release, Trip. I would describe this as garage-pop that definitely echoes both artists' New York roots. Some tracks are harder rock such as the guitar and drums-driven "Hey hey Uh-Huh". Other tracks are more pop-oriented such as the focus track "Burnt Out Star", which reminds me of something that the band Metric would produce. My favorite track...the 60's noir piece "This is How the Song Goes". Trip is all-in-all an album worth checking out. Rebecca Ruth
