Our first review is of a fantastic album released by The Palomars on the newly formed Catty Town Records.
The Canadian band from Vancouver have created a masterpiece. Its one of the best records we have heard in a while.A mix of original compositions with some well covered classics thrown in for good measure. Our favourite is the title track “Out Of The Past” with “My Gal Pal” a close second.
The magnificent blend of Western Swing, Rockabilly and Jazz is brought to life by Tom Hammel’s outstanding steel guitar playing.
The recording itself is crystal clear and the production is somewhat reminiscent of a Jive Aces album. The Lyrics are easy to hear and the band is well mixed and a pleasure to listen too.
We look forward to the next release !!! Catty Town and The Palomars have a bright future ahead.
