Restos (from the album Ain’t Dead Yet available as a self-release) (by Bryant Liggett
Music fans that go straight to the RIYL (recommended if you like) section of album or band reviews will likely be drawn into the audio world of Austin Rock’n’Roll band Restos. It’s a sound oh-so familiar while being completely fresh, as their debut in Ain’t Dead Yet dips into Rootsy, exploratory Pop while also throwing around all-encompassing ‘progressive’ sounds of 1980’s Indie radio, a catch all world of influences ranging from, if you want to drop names, Travel Lanes to Graham Parker.
A solid Rock rhythm kicks off the record via “Wild Heart”, where the band throws a big salute to the late songwriter Chris Porter, while the title track has classic jangle, soft hand-claps and harmonies that stretch for miles. “Wild as the Wind” is a laid-back Rocker, the perfect pairing for its follow up in “I Came Here to Rock and Roll”. They are two cuts solid on their own, even better delivered as a loose and lazy pair. “Faded Love” is a fun blast of Power Pop, “Thinking of You” has some desert-noir in its guitar intro. Restos close Ain’t Dead Yet with a Power Pop return via “Faded Love”.
Aforementioned names and descriptors aside, it is however all of their sound; an embraceable record where you’ll dig musical hooks and heady tales, toe-tapping, head bopping. Restos delivers a solid package of sunny Rock’n’Roll. (by Bryant Liggett
