Giant Flying Turtles unique indie music Giant Flying Turtles – WALTZ TO THE WORLD: This great little band from Brooklyn says they’re “carving a place in/beyond Brooklyn”, & they’ve NAILED it on this fine rockin’ CD! Just listen to tunes like “Stay Out Late” with the striding bass introduction to pure pandemonium, & you’ll be as convinced as I was when I first heard this track!
Their style is a blend of other cool styles, & once you’ve listened to these players (Calvin Bennett on vocals, upright bass, 6 and 12 string guitars, cello; Johnny Young – vocals, piano, keyboards, acoustic and electric guitars; TJ Jordan – guitars and vocals and Jim Toscano – drums and percussion), you’ll be caught up for the long term… especially when they play songs like “River Runs Dry“… a song that clearly displays their high-talent and high-energy for the playing of the music… I totally dug this tune; no, it’s not “jazz”, in fact, it’s kind of their own style & more unique indie than I’ve heard in a good long time – GREAT energy & some splendid organ from Johnny!
Of the eleven tracks offered up, though, it is the guitar-laden “Good To Be Alive” that is my pick for personal favorite (& definitely the reason why I wanted the chance to review them here)… there are some marvelous integrations of strings, very much alive keyboards & strong vocals! I give these gents a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.98. Get more information & listen to their songs/samples on the Giant Flying Turtles REVERBNATION site! (keep your ears on these cats, they’re going to ascend rapidly)! Rotcod Zzaj
