Amazing Baby, 'Rewild' (Shangri-la)

Critical Mass
Label:

by Julia Yepes

On their debut album, Brooklyn singer-keyboardist Will Roan and guitarist Simon O'Connor long to get "lost in the garden of Eden," and these showmen/shamen, with a full band and 15-piece orchestra,almost get there. Channeling glam, metal, punk, power pop, and experimental noise, Rewild is like a tour through a psychedelic fantasyland, featuring visions, hallucinations, and glimpses of death. Roan coaxes with an almost deliriously euphoric art-rock swagger (see reggae jam "Roverfrenz" and infectious chant-along "Smoke Bros"), while O'Connor infuses every track with hedonistic energy. Amazing Baby are desperate to dazzle -- and they often do.
