This time, The Reverb Syndicate give their second effort a more relaxed, spacier, surfier sound. It sounds as if they're busy defending us from some sort of space invaders one-handed while holding a martini in the other. (Hey, these guys were busy saving the world from the-GASP-Top 40 with their first release, Operation: Jet Set.) If you liked their first offering (see archives), you'll like the second. This time around we find the band deep in space to launch its latest offering, Sputnik A-Go-Go. A collection of ten Syndicate originals, combining the spy/surf of 2006’s Operation: Jet Set! with theremin-laced, double-picking surf rock from the depths of space!
Review from Phil Dirt at Reverb Central: (www.reverbcentral.com)
This is the second release from The Reverb Syndicate. The whole album is light hearted, rich in imagery, and fluid. Sputnik A-Go-Go is a very listenable and enjoyable release.
