Young Heart Attack : Starlite

(Cardiac) arresting rock'n'growl from Texan troublemakers...

Young Heart Attack : Starlite

There may be little new in YHA's

Cro-Magnon approximation of classic

rock's 'oeuvre' but - as new single 'Starlite' so spiritedly attests - there's gold in them thar fret-fiddling hills: a down-home simplicity that suggests clinging like irony-free lichen to a preset palette of possibilities - sub-section 'rawkanrawwwwlll' - will nab you all kind of sincerity-related kudos. Accordingly, 'Starlite' is nothing short of a wing-ding. The organ's overjoyed because it won first place in a [a]Who[/a] soundalike competition and ace singer Jennifer is triumphant because, as she herself explains, she's "alive… alive… alive!" (Trailer) trash and celebratory treasure, the way Uncle Sam intended. Tuck in.
