DAYLIGHT ROBBERY: Ecstatic Vision: 12″

Ecstatic Vision LP cover art

This three-piece band from Chicago, IL play punk rock with a nice heavy dose of post punk mixed in along with a bit of Exene Cervenka vocal stylings. Ten tracks on their sophomore album that get better with every listen and with dal male and female vocals, it really stands out from the crowd.

Laying down some nice thick and throbbing bass lines, a touch of surf guitar, hard-hitting drums and the dual vocals really grabbed my attention and made me listen to this a lot before I started writing this review. The songs have so much energy and excitement running through them that it’s hard to sit still while playing this album. The fun that the band is having on this album is infectious and it puts a smile on your face and forces you into a good mood. This has the sound and feel of the albums that I loved back in the ’80s, around ’84 – ’86 and would have been a perfect album to put on mix tapes back then, but it still sounds great now, refreshing actually.

I was so pleasantly surprised to hear this album and find another band that I will have to find all of their recordings now. Great album from start to finish and really, you just need to go out and buy this one today.
