Song of the Day - November 28, 2005

The Mendoza Line came out with their seventh album Full Of Light And Full Of Fire last week and it is great. I guess seven is a lucky number. The album is full of intelligent lyrics and awesome tunes. Vocals are handled by Shannon McArdle and Timothy Bracy, with Timothy sounding like Dylan and Shannon reminiscent of a young Chrissie Hynde. Some reviews have compared the two to Johnny Cash and June Carter, very high praise indeed. One of my favorite tunes is "Golden Boy (Torture in the Shed). Shannon definitely has the Chrissie Hynde/Pretenders thing going on during this tune, which is more upbeat than most of the other tunes. I especially love the chorus where she sings background for herself. It is just beautiful and when combined with the uptempo guitar work and steady drum beat, I just can't resist.
