“Dallas’ indie rock outfit Spookeasy might take their inspiration from 90′s alternative and surf rock, but the sonic result is uniquely their own, mostly in part to vocalist Stephanie Burns idiosyncratic delivery. Their track “Faux Show” cuts its way onto our indie-dance floor with a killer backbeat and dense, reverberating guitars.”
“Produced by Eric Harvey of Spoon, Faux Show is a big leap from the band's self-recorded EP, their only other recording to date. The sounds on the slick new disc run the gamut from garage-y Velvet Underground-inspired blues, spacey pop, Black Angels-style psychedelia, and, of course, some Spoon for good measure. ”
"It's been a long time where I've been lured into a show while walking down the street, but that's exactly what happened to me Friday night. I passed Club Dada, liked what I heard, and paid cover for Spookeasy. Their live set is a little more rocking than the CD, which has a slight new wavish feel to it. The intro to this track almost reminds me of Cocteau Twins for some reason. But whether live or on CD, this band gets two enthusiastic thumbs up from me."
