Turn back the time to 1984 and a record like "Gone Gatsby" by San Antonio, Texas based Sound of Curves would be right at home soundwise.
The band formed in 2009 and their current line up consists of Leonel Pompa - Vocals/Guitars/Keys, Roger Maher - Vocals/Bass, Aaron Montano Teague - Lead Guitar and Josh Leija - Drums.
14 tracks might be a few too many, they should have reduced it to 10 or 11 to raise the quality of the entire album.
But don´t get me wrong here because it´s a good album with plenty of material to soothe your soul if you´re into bands like Pseudo Echo, Big Country, The Outfield and even Weezer.
Sound of Curves deliver a blend of power pop, new wave and Aussie rock which is quite charming, I do think the first 4 tracks are the best ones on "Gone Gatsby" and the track "London" that sounds like The Rembrandts meets The Clash. So cool!
Good stuff.
