No doubt it was an added surge of energy, that extra bit of inspiration, having Jody Stephens working with The Reputations on their latest release in the very same space his own band, Big Star, made their albums.
It totally makes sense. Ardent Studios in Memphis is the birthplace of Electric Power, an LP surging with these classic ‘60s garage and ‘70s AM rock/pop sounds executed to perfection. Producer Stephens tapped into some excitingly brilliant moments with the Austin-based band, especially the outstanding vocals led by the phenomenal Rockyanne Bullwinkel.
Treat yourself to what will undoubtedly be an incredible live performance when you see The Reputations tonight at The Continental Club, 1315 S. Congress. The line-up features sets by The Joe Jacksons, and Sweet Spirit‘s Josh Merry’s musical project, Glass Grapes.
Holy hell. This is no exaggeration. Very recommended.
