Women Of The Night

You are more than welcome to write to me at BloodForVinyl@gmail.com; I do not receive very many emails so I would love to hear from you.  And if you are in a band that wants to send me vinyl to review, bring it!  Women of the Night, from New York City, did that very thing and sent me a couple of 45rpms.

Moscow Mansions/Be Careful What You Wish For is swimmy and light-hearted and gives you an airy feeling.  Do you remember in the old Bugs Bunny cartoons how a good smell would intoxicate Bugs and lift him off his feet causing him to float through the air?  This record has the same effect as it wafts from your turntable and over to your ears causing you to lift out of your seat and seemingly drift about the room.

This record sounds as if Polaris, the fake band famous for the theme song to The Adventures of Pete & Pete on Nickelodeon, hooked up with the undead ghost of Bob Dylan and took surf guitar lessons from The Ventures.  Moscow Mansions/Be Careful What You Wish For is the dreamy and synth-pop-y side of modern alternative and it would be at home in any hipster bar or on a teenage comedy soundtrack.

Leather Glove/Quiet Nights continues the dreamy synth-pop alternative surf sound, but it has just a touch more grit to the vocals.  There is a ’60s feel to the vocal work on this album with a slight mix of the British Invasion and the psychedelic rock sounds.

These two 7″ records from Women of the Night walk the line between being fun and taking themselves too seriously.

My favorite track: Be Careful What You Wish For
