SOUL | Clairy Browne & The Bangin' Rackettes 

There are not enough exclamation points to express my excitement about this Clairy Browne & The Bangin' Rackettes show. This Australian nine-piece group — four gals, five guys — is reminiscent of performers like Amy Winehouse, but has its own signature groove that incorporates elements of swing and R&B. Lead singer Clairy Browne is a knock out with smoking hot pipes while her Bangin' Rackettes party like it's 1969. I'm digging the classic soul tendencies: girl-group harmonies ("I'll Be Fine"), joyous noise ("Love Letter"), and melancholy heartbreak ("You Don't Owe Me Nothing"). Clairy Browne & The Bangin' Rackettes' current North American tour includes a stint at Outkast's Atlanta-based Stankonia Studios where the group is recording a full-length follow-up to its debut album, "Baby Caught The Bus." Clairy Browne & The Bangin' Rackettes will also make a free in-store appearance at Record Archive, 33 1/3 Rockwood Street, on Monday, August 18, at 6 p.m.

Clairy Browne & The Bangin' Rackettes performs Sunday, August 17, at California Brew Haus, 402 W. Ridge Road. 7 p.m. $15.;
