Kitty, Daisy & Lewis sounds like it’s fresh out of the time machine, like it was recorded on equipment from the ’50s, and if it weren’t for the grittier lyrics and female vocalists, I would swear up and down that I was actually listening to the lost recordings of Elvis Presley when he was still trying to figure out his sound. With songs like “Mean Son of a Gun” and “Polly Put the Kettle On,” can you blame me?

Their music is straight up classic rockabilly. The production quality is the downfall of this album. I feel like I’m listening to the band from one thin-walled room over. I’m still getting the basic feel of the music, and their head-bopping rhythms would make their predecessors proud … but it all sounds so far away!
