Shoes: Present Tense

Posted by

ImageLike such similarly styled outfits as the Dudes, the Records and the Raspberries, Shoes seem intent on resurrecting mid-’60s power pop. That’s fine with me, especially since the Illinois quartet boasts tight guitar, sweet, airy harmonies and accessible original material. I do hope that the second album will feature fewer soundalikes and a bit more punch; but with songs that are as much fun as “Cruel You” to enjoy here, I’m not in the mood to complain.
