Juliette and the Licks Set US Release
Filled with the bristling pop heroics found on the Licks' debut LP, 2005's YOU'RE SPEAKING MY LANGUAGE, FOUR ON THE FLOOR wreaks of pure, unadulterated rock bliss complete with the swagger and bravado this band is known for. A maelstrom of thundering drums, compliments of Dave Grohl's studio work [replaced live by official new member Ed Davis], aggressive guitars (Todd Morse and Kemble Walters), driving bass grooves (Jason Womack) and Juliette Lewis' snarling vocals, FOUR ON THE FLOOR pops with sexually-charged energy and raw power. A throwback to '60's and '70's garage rock, the album teems with a new confidence, chemistry, songwriting chops and kick-ass rock thrills. Overall, this quintet has unleashed a collection of mercilessly catchy songs.
