Title - Hot Ní Fresh
Artist - Pardon The Interruption
For those unaware, roaring out of the fog-shrouded hills of Sonoma and drowning out the chatter, prog-pop troubadours PARDON THE INTERRUPTION (aka PTI) are taking their place and asserting their voice in the storied musical conversation of the San Francisco Bay Area.
Available worldwide April 14th, 2023, PTIís sophomore release HOT Ní FRESH finds the band in full stride with nine original tracks mining every corner of the indie-pop-funk spectrum, always with a self-effacing smile and a nod to the progressive rock of the í80s and í90s that is the quartetís uniting influence.
With a powerful energy and a unique sound, PARDON THE INTERRUPTION is a 4-piece fusion outfit that creates original music pulling from genres including rock, roots, funk, soul, ska, reggae, and more.
One foot is planted firmly in the past, paying homage to some of the most singular and iconic artists of the í70s, í80s, and í90s. The other is stepping boldly forward, producing original material that is at once nostalgically familiar while also entirely modern and unique.
Itís undeniable fun. It will make you dance. Itís like a perfect pepperoni pizza. Itís HOT Ní FRESH!
2. We Can Figure It Out
3. Cindy Will Prevail
4. Construction Man
5. Rhythm Is Right
6. Itís Complicated
7. I Used To Drive
9. Life Is Fantastic
This free flowingly melodic, charmingly-hued new recording opens on the funky grooves within Opa! and the bass-led, heavy southern blues vibe of We Can Figure It Out and then brings us the lighter, SKA-esquse appeal of Cindy Will Prevail, the pop-rock of Construction Man, and then comes the luxurious rhythms, coupled with a magnificent í80s AOR-balladry guitar/sax break within Rhythm Is Right.
Along next are the funky, slap guitar one minute, low slung balladry the next of the genre-flaunting Itís Complicated and that is itself backed seamlessly by the dreamy, mid-tempo I Used To Drive, the album rounding out all too soon on the low key rocksteady appeal of Higher, closing on the guitar-led foot tapper Life Is Fantastic.
