Glitter Wizard- Kiss the Boot EP (Kitten Robot Records)

Eclectic SF Bay area band are back with a new rockin´ EP, going back to more of their glam rock roots and shorter more direct tracks including a cool Bowie cover…  This was recorded over a weekend in Los Angeles at the record label´s studio.  Then another weekend to do some overdubs and mix!  It starts off wtih She´s a Star!  It is a fast paced rock and roll number, a mix of GW own strange and funny parts and then real classic rock. Love the synths on this one. Check out the fun video below. Glitterati packs a lot into this 2.5 min track. The keyboard hook line is crucial to this one. The vocal chorus is so 70s cheese but it works… They back spacey sounds and short guitar solos in so you get it all!! Sequins and Leather slows things down. Flip over the record and you get a bit of Bowie.  One of his well loved songs from the early 70s..  Hard to beat the original but cool version.  Sugar Beat is one of my fave tracks. Something about the mix of the footstomping beat, vocals and that guitar riff!!  Pogo Tonight is a real 70s cheese pop number, that ELO synth, and … well.. you just have to hear it.. Not my fave track….  It is a really fun EP!! Enjoy…
