Propeller – Don’t Ever Let This Let You Down
Greg Randall and Will Anderson are back with a follow up to 2016’s Fall Off The World. Propeller’s Don’t Ever Let This Let You Down picks up where it’s predecessor left off, with jangly guitars and hooks galore.
The chiming guitars and catchy melody make “Summer Arrives” a great start to the album. “Lose My Way” has the harmonies and hand claps to make it a 70’s radio hit. “Girl Gone” has the drive and anthemic quality to make anyone sit up and listen. And it’s got a killer hook of a chorus. Attention to harmonies and other poppy embellishments make this track instantly accessible.
“We’re Better Than Nothing” takes a Jeff Lynne riff and turns it into a super-catchy Byrds/Traveling Willbury’s hybrid. The vocal approach changes just a bit for “Days Collide”. It’s a start to finish hook and probably my favorite on Don’t Ever Let This Let You Down.
The guys use all the best elements of 60’s and 70’s pop/rock. Chock full of great harmonies, killer hooks and attention to detail, Don’t Ever Let This Let You Down is one fine album. Get your copy from the band’s Bandcamp site.
