Sunday Night Scene - A Lil' Glam, So Shameless

Sunday Night Scene - A Lil' Glam, So Shameless
Record Label: Crystal Lake Records
Release Date: July 15, 2008


Many people know the story of Pavlov's dog. Pavlov was a scientist who was very interested in reflexes associated with different activities. He used the experiment of ringing a bell whenever his dog was going to eat, so that the dog would begin to drool every single time the bell was rung, since he knew he would receive food. This same fundamental aspect can occur in music as well, especially in "the scene" as of late. It seems that whenever a bunch of scene kids have a wad of money in their hands, a band pulls out their trusty Garageband software, makes an album, and takes the money with willful pleasure. Oh reactionary laws, where would we be without you?

The latest group to exemplify this trend of money-taking, haberdashery is the acoustic/electronic act Sunday Night Scene, with their debut A Lil' Glam, So Shameless. Besides a few good tracks, such as the country tinges of "Pocket Kings," the catchy single "Midnight Pre Rum," and the acoustic flare of "View Of Dakota." But for the most part, this album is mainly forgettable. It sounds as if it were assembled on a bad recording software, with auto-tune that isn't exactly necessary for the kind of music presented.

A Lil' Glam, So Shameless falls prey very easily to filler. Not a lot of songs hook you in right away, they are meandering and unnecessary for the album as a whole. Certainly if this album was filled with the aforementioned songs that had these lacking qualities, this might have made for a much better effort.

Not to offend, but all this album seems to be is a quick cash grab for an artist who has yet to understand their art. Sunday Night Scene, like any artist, have a lot to offer. I can't necessarily sit here and assume that they don't have their best intentions at heart, but given the lackluster performance of this album, it's all that the listener is left with unfortunately. Maybe for the next round, they will realize who they are and take a few leaps in the right direction.

I like his new stuff. Jimme's super nice and pretty good live. I don't know if he goes acoustic for all his shows, but he did when I saw him. It was a really peaceful night.
