W. H. Walker lives up to the hype
W. H. Walker - Suds! (Independently released CD-R EP, Pop)

Whoever wrote the info on the little promo sticker for this disc gets ten bonus points. The text describing this band's music immediately caught our attention: "The future of doo-wop boogie pop, lassoing the soul of 1950s and the hooks of 1970s & dragging those years through the dregs of punk into 2010." Those crazy smart folks at XO about stroking our curiosity...!?! The great news is that the music created by the folks in W. H. Walker lives up to the hype. We would add a line to the description stating that there are a few subtle threads of glam running through these tunes as well. This short disc clocks in at just under 24 minutes...but even though its short the tunes pack a major punch. Killer hard pop cuts include "As The Night Goes," "Watch Your Step," and "Second Hand Store. Top pick.
