The surviving members of the classic 1960s, made-for-TV pop band, The Monkees are back with a surprisingly great new record.
Just like in the old days, the band has recruited some of the best songwriters available to help out. Look for tracks written by Andy Partridge (of XTC), Ben Gibbard (Death Cab for Cutie), Rivers Cuomo (Weezer), Paul Weller (The Jam, Style Council), and others. Producer Adam Schlesinger from Fountains of Wayne has created a sound reminiscent of the Monkees we all remember without making it just a nostalgia record.
The songs all sound fresh, modern, and current while still having the 60s flavor you’d expect. You’re going to love it.
