ALBUM REVIEW: "Paramount Clouds" 

The Demos

"Paramount Clouds"

Self-released

The Demos, baby. I've loved this band ever since it burst on the scene some 10-odd years ago. And this new EP, "Paramount Clouds," serves to further cement my ardor. This is pure power pop stuff in line with Cheap Trick's memorable work on "Heaven Tonight," full of chunky riffs, harmonies, and hooks for miles.

You see, a pop melody typically catches the listener's ear within a few spins, but every goddamn cut on this five-song wonder wheel is almost recognizable before it is heard, if that's even possible. In contrast to the cavalier and rootsy vocals — delivered plaintive, pretty and low key — the guitar work pushes beyond its rhythm and twang role to once again flirt with a subtle electronica, as the band has been known to do on previous outings. The lyrics are clever alongside the pop melody, and it's not too sweet. This is the sound of pure joy. I love The Demos, and I love, love "Paramount Clouds." — BY FRANK DE BLASE
