Get to You is the debut record from Melbourne band The Night Party. A collaboration between Buck Lexton and Rick Sands, this album draws some comparisons to the likes of The Black Keys and The Rolling Stones. Although the album only goes for 30 minutes, throughout the twelve tracks there is an extensive music landscape created through each of the tracks.
‘Love in Vain’ kicks off with some infectious fuzz guitar lines that sound like it could be covered by The Black Keys for triple j’s Like a Version or taken from their 2010 album, Brothers. On record you can produce many sounds, and the thing that is both really surprising and awesome about this record is that it is just two guys in the studio smashing out some old school rock and roll.
It’s funky, fresh, original rock and roll at its best and it will be interesting to see how the band pulls off playing these tracks live. If you’re road-trippin’ in the next little while, be sure to pick up Get to You and add it to the collection of sweet tunes on rotation.
This is an album with many different flavours and textures offering a wide palate of rock and roll. Check this band out; it’s an enjoyable listen. And don’t be surprised if you are having a little boogie around your bedroom whilst it is playing.
