Trouble In The Wind - No Work Dancing
Hailing from Southern California, the combo known as Trouble in the Wind can be described as, in a word, fearless. Not only does the band bear complete disdain for current trends in music, but it flaunts its flippant disregard proudly like a badge of honor.
The primary hallmark of NO WORK DANCING is its inconsistent yet wholly sincere recording process. Apparently, the band recorded songs in different room of a house to best represent the music in its rawest state. This gives the album an uneven quality, sounding half live and half pro-recorded, but it doesn't really hurt the listening experience, as it creates an aura of intrigue as to what Trouble in the Wind is going to do next.
Musically, the band is also across the map, as far as genre classifications. Some moments, we are treated to tried-and-true rockabilly, and in others, we are blasted with a form of alterna-pop with a 1970s punk attitude. And throughout the proceedings, the vocals exude drunken bliss, as though Robby Gira just broke up with his girlfriend and got well-marinated before approaching the microphone.
NO WORK DANCING is a fun, if raucous, joyride into the mind of a band that simply does not care what the world thinks of it, as long as you give it a shot. Definitely an album that should come with a two-drink minimum!
