No, its not actually a bootleg, its the debut full length from Brooklyn's Marvin Berry & The New Sound, and were excited to announce that were helping them out with it!
Marvin Berry & the New Sound are an energetic rock and roll band from NYC might best be described as something resembling a late '70s English punk/new wave band playing '60s girl group songs. Emphasis on fun and hooks with a soulful powerhouse lead singer, these guys have a timeless quality that exemplifies the transcendent power of rock and roll music.
Here's what Barker Gee had to say about the new album:
Listen to a track off the record, White Jungle, below:Finally! The wait is over! The blue sound of the New Sound has crawled it's way out from bar room obscurity, out of the darkest corners of New York City cellars to the hearts and ears of the yearning, burning, table top turning masses who have waited, anything but patiently, to be saved by its sick sounds. Feel free to toss your record collections because BOOTLEG is here and its BIG! This slab o' wax needs the whole shelf.
From the "something" drums (BANG!) to the "something something" bass (BOOM!). The "blah blah" guitars (WAAH!), and don't forget about that front man (YOWZA!). YOWZA! These guys have got IT! What's "IT" you ask? Hell I don't know, ask your girlfriend. All I know is this album smokes! It chain smokes even! So don't wait! Don't be late! Don't procrastinate! BOOTLEG is here!
Marvin Berry & The New Sound - Bootleg is out February 25 digitally and on LP (self-released by the band). They are playing a record release show on February 21 at Union Pool on Brooklyn with Liquor Store and Hector's Pets.
