Listen to my shapes. A tactile invitation to an elevated pop consciousness offered by this brainchild of singer/guitarist Greg Loiacono, best known for his frontline role in California Soul institution, The Mother Hips. Sensations move with the natural grace of Roy Orbison, and Buddy Holly & the Crickets infused with ’70s power trio muscle They bounce hard like the Soft Boys/Robyn Hitchcock, My Morning Jacket and ’60s British Invasion greats. In Loiacono’s words, it’s “a macho/sensitive music that explores modern day psychedelia and the feelings of body and heart.”
Bringing in a wealth of road won experience, Loiacono, abetted by bassist Reed Mathis (Tea Leaf Green, Marco Benevento) and drummer Dave Brogan (ALO), Sensations rescue pop music from the slagheap of today’s charts, returning it to the cerebrally breezy tradition of the Kinks & Hollies. What’s more, they build on that darkly tuneful legacy. Not merely nostalgic recreationists, Sensations breathe creativity & sonic verve into every crevice of this lean, punchy marvel.
The show went on for Gov’t Mule at the Pabst Theater in Milwaukee on Thursday despite the absence of drummer Matt Abts.
