Readymade Breakup making its way…

Hear it now:   Inside All Along Last week I was given a chance to check out one of my favorite bands’ newest (unmastered) album. Untitled as of yet, but just known as LP3, I dug in excited to hear what the guys from Readymade Breakup had come up with.  It had been two years since I had met them, received their fantastic album Alive on the Vine, and I was obviously thrilled to hear some more of their sound.

Mystery Jets – Serotonin

Flash a Hungry Smile Serotonin Brit prog / psychedelia band Mystery Jets have recently released their album Serotonin, the follow up to their 2008 album Twenty One.  This album is full of catchy synth pop songs about heart ache / break and general unfortunate events.  Clear winners on the album are the released Flash a Hungry Smile and title track Serotonin.  They seem to be reviving the sound that Duran Duran left back in the day; and in no way is that a bad thing.  A solid entry to their growing catalog of albums. Check out Serotonin.
