The debut album from Los Angeles based Diamond Hands was previously only available on Vinyl but is now released on CD by Kool Kat Music.
The band features Jon Flynn and Joel Wall, two guys that probably grew up listening to The Beatles, E.L.O and The Beach Boys.
With a foundation like that to stand on, it´s easy to understand why their album sounds that way.
The music is well performed and I immediately got an idea that I should recommend this album to Jessie´s Barbershop where I get a beard cut once a month, their playlists are built on music with a 50´s, 60´s and 70´s feel.
Wings meets Mott The Hoople in "Just another day" which is my favorite song, it´s a solid album but this song stand out.
For fans of Phantom Planet, Beady Eye, Supergrass
Highlights : Just another day, Not the same
