by Mark Saleski

On Nicholas Urie’s MySpace page, we’re informed that “This isn’t your grandma’s big band!” No kidding. With lyrics taken from actual online dating service recordings, the thematic content would make grandma raise those eyebrows. I was hooked upon hearing “Bad Girl?,” which starts off with a kind of standard dating service introduction: “I am a forty-two year old/Good looking and sexy…”. By the composition’s end we have mentions of “good ‘ol fashioned discipline” as well as “spanking fun.” It’s just good, clean family entertainment.

‘Half Notes’ are quick-take thoughts on music from Something Else! Reviews, presented whenever the mood strikes us.
