The Mooney Suzuki – Electric Sweat

NYC foursome The Mooney Suzuki are the secret architects of the neo-garage rock scene. Released three years ago, their debut album, People Get Ready, caused such a stir that two of The Strokes tried out for a vacancy in the band but didn’t make the grade. Recent history suggests that The Mooney Suzuki’s loss was the modern rock fan’s gain, yet Electric Sweat tells a different story. Produced by Jim Diamond (The White Stripes), it’s a rootsy affair that evokes the spirit of the MC5 before wiping the floor with rival garage rock acts on the sublime, Otis Redding-inspired ballad “The Broken Heart”.
