LA quartet The Willowz are into fast-paced short rock songs with a hint of soul. Their new album Everyone is - like its predecessor Chautauqua - a barn stormer tearing through ten songs in less than half an hour. They have added a few slower songs in some of their songs like the pseudo lounge ballad No Heroes with soft trumpets adding a layer of gloss on the gritty vocals, but they are cut out for fast paced stuff like Twenty Five and Repetition.
Everyone is a pretty decent 21st century garage rock album. Basic, solid and, most of all, fun.
