Title - Streets of Gold
Artist - Electric Six
For those not in the know, Electric Six are BACK, baby! Garage Rock revivalists Electric Six, still led by vocalist/founder Dick Valentine alongside lead guitarist Johnny Na$hinal, keyboardist Tait Nucleus?, rhythm guitarist Da Vť, and bassist Rob Lower, who once warned you about Danger! High Voltage and then invited you party at the Gay Bar, are about to take you to a heavenly place, a place where INXS dance ecstatically next to Roky Erickson, The Jam mix it up with Arthur Leeís Love, and Alice Cooper, Fleetwood Mac and KISS meet up for a big tent musical revival at the Church Of James Ingramís Holy Voice!
This is Streets Of Gold, the high-octane collection of cover songs hand-picked by Electric Six to showcase the bandís eclectic and excellent musical tastes. Today, the band proudly shares their version of Ingramís soulful, spiritual hit Yah Mo B There along with a gleeful music video that wears its outsider heart on its sleeve, much like these Michigan natives who have marched to the beat of their own manic drummer for the last 20+ years.

Opening on the thunderous Donít Change, the melodic rock of Click Your Fingers Applauding The Play and the notably dreamy flow of Little Lies, they continue their magnificent sonic rumblings with a mighty fine rendition of Thatís Entertainment, the finger-snapping Maybe The People Would Be The Times Or Between Clark And Hilldale and the funky Slippery People.
Up next is the low key Hey which is in turn followed by the perfect rock hipsway of No More Mr. Nice Guy, and then we get a magically flamboyant Strutter, a tantalizing Under The God, the album rounding out on their new single, the quite mesmerizingly-creative Yah Mo B There, the album closing on newly updated revisits to both of their much-loved singles, the angst-ridden Danger! High Voltage and the guitar frenzy of Gay Bar.
Are Electric Six the only band bold enough to cover themselves on a covers album? Yes. They. Are! Streets Of Gold will be available July 30th, 2021 in a deluxe CD digipak as well as in a 2 part vinyl package with the full album on colored vinyl PLUS a bonus 12Ē single.
