The Palomars
"Jail House Bop" / "Brassy Dame" / "Space Age Chevy" (self)

The joint was jumpin'. Limber, grinning dance athletes in hipster glad rags bopped and swung atop weathered hardwood, as a dependable barkeep toweled a mug and surveyed the wall-to-wall fun.

Onstage, a three-man combo gave out with as winning, cleanly defined, and easygoing a sound backdrop as might be desired. Crack-pop snare, knowingly negotiated doghouse, steel-string swerves, impeccable guitar articulations, affably drawled narrations -- everything in its place, and a place for everything.
