The Rattles ~ Review and Giveaway

Info:

Hailing straight from the swamps of Central Jersey, an eclectic band of anthropomorphic critters known as The Rattles are preparing to roll out their debut studio album ‘RATTLE ON’ on August 17th. Working in the classic traditions of The Beatles, Moxy Fruvous, The Monkees, and They Might Be Giants, The Rattles apply a fresh fusion of classic rock and power pop that is sure to appeal to fans of all ages and put them on the map.

The unique animal collective consists of four stellar musicians and life-long friends – Gus, Kitty, Sal, and Hal – who describe their upcoming release as “the album we were born to make”. From start to finish, ‘RATTLE ON’ provides a solid testament to The Rattles’ undeniable musical ingenuity, jammed with catchy pop melodies and feel-good vibes that are sure to inspire lots of head swaying and booty-shaking.

With their trusty manager Benny and a devoted legion of roadies all named Elvis in tow, The Rattles intend to take their show on the road and connect directly with the people who inspire them most – the fans. With such a distinct background and a colorful collection of grooves, The Rattles are shaping up to be one of the most intriguing new music acts of the year.



My boys didn't care for The Rattles, but they are older and it didn't help that when I put it on my husband didn't like it, and they agreed with him. My daughter loves the music though, and since I got it for her thats what counts! It's a light rock, but being rock my daughter thinks it needs to be played as loud as possible! Thankfully she can close her door. I personally found the music easy to listen to and thought it fit right in with my musical tastes.
Here is a sample mp3 of the lead single, titled "Wavy Lane" so you can have a listen for yourself.

The CD has a total of 9 music tracks which the whole family can enjoy (If they aren't picky like mine). The music video, Rattle on is also included. My daughters both enjoy the animation and have fun dancing along!
