Get excited folks, our friends from Lucky Diaz and The Family Jam Band have a new album! “A Potluck” serves up a musical smorgasbord of tasty lyrical numbers that incorporates styles from “indie pop to vintage rock and roll, ska and world beats”. It’s addictive, it’s electric, it’s energetic… and it’s groooooovy man.
The intro track “morning” proclaims, “When I use my imagination, I’m never quite alone”… which sets an adventurous tone for this mighty fine album. Listeners are then taken on a playful day through a 9 fun tracks, before arriving at the final track, “night”, to enjoy the community Potluck Dinner… Mmmm, banana pudding!
Top tracks on this album are many, with songs like “Lemonade Stand” evoking nostalgic memories for Mums and Dads and “On My Bike” inspiring new weekend adventures for the little ones. “Squirrely The Squirrel” and his potato sack race is especially fun for a giggle, a chuckle.. heck, even a guffaw!
I also dig “Lil’ Red Rooster” for the sheer craziness that it evokes in this household. I dare you to play this one loud during the witching hour. Chances are you’ll also love “Who Stole The Cookies” just as much as I do. I mean, really, it’s a classic song set to a groovin’ rock n roll beat!
A Potluck by Lucky Diaz and The Family Jam Band will be available from 8 May 2012.
For a little taste, you can download the single “Lines and Dots” via iTunes.
The Verdict…. Love it, Buy it, Play it LOUD!
