Late in 2011 I started hearing Pickwick on KEXP radio (in Seattle) and I got really excited. I've loved Soul music since I was a teenager, and my hope was that this new band could invigorate Indie Rock with Soul the same way the Black Keys had with Garage Rock and Blues. After seeing Pickwick live the first time I told everybody that within a year all the kids in Portland would be shaving their beards, donning snappy clothes, and trading in their banjos for vintage Gibsons. The music had energy, it had weight, and you could dance to it!
Well, things didn't turn out exactly like I thought (they usually don't). The other band I heard on KEXP at the same time, the Alabama Shakes, released their record and blew up big time. Pickwick kept building on word of mouth and toured around the Northwest while starting and stopping, a couple times, before finally finishing this record. And even though I had to wait 16 months, I'm glad they took their time because this is a great...
Love these guys! Its such great music! I'm a proud supporter of a local band for the city I live in......Seattle! Seen them perform live in the city many times and their stage presence is always AMAZING too!
Love them and always a great show. Saw them last Sunday at the "Wonder Ballroom" in Portland OR. CD is great!!1Can't Talk Medicine
