Good Looking Son - Fantasy Weekend [MARKED DOWN] - New 12"

Regular price $ 11.00 $ 0.00
While this doesn't sound like the 1960s (or the bands mentioned in this description), this obviously owes something to that decade, especially the power-pop material of UK outfits such as The Who, The Kinks and The Beatles (with hints of bands that came before such as the Everly Brothers, Roy Orbison, Buddy Holly...) and the bands that rose in the wake of 1960s power pop, the commercially successful outfits of the early 1970s and especially the underground power pop of the Midwest in the middle of the 1970s, this band rising out of that as its own animal, the melancholy present but not getting in the way of the songs, sounding a bit like those cold days when the gray and white clouds occasionally clear to show glimpses of sun and blue sky. . -- winch (green noise)

Unlike many Feel It releases, this first pressing is black vinyl.  "Plays nice and loud at 45 RPM. Packaged in a reverse board jacket with insert, download code, and hype sticker."
"While a stunning debut - the introduction to Good Looking Son feels more like a timely reacquaintance with an old friend. "Fantasy Weekend" is the latest from Keith Harman, whose lead vocals and songwriting abilities have long anchored The Cowboys and their prolific run that spans more than 70 original songs over five albums and change. There's a certain familiar, but ever-so-finessed element to Harman's songwriting that really hits the bullseye across this six track EP. "Fantasy Weekend" gazes into the dark, heavily glazed garage-pop of the late 60's/early 70's as Keith's calm, cool cadence balances between baritone sentimentality and ghostly thrum. A release both far from predictable and electrifying as the tempo cranks up along quirky keyboard lines that segue into classic powerpop territory. Whatever Midwestern time warp these songs crept out of is truly serene. Created in Cincinnati with Jerri Queen (Vacation) both producing and playing alongside Cowboys drummer Jordan Tarantino and longtime Queen City rocker Andrew Jody on bass, wrapped up with a vibrant mastering job courtesy of Caufield Schnug (Sweeping Promises). "Fantasy Weekend" is as immediate as it is entrancing - a rare one that can hold court at both first and last call.
