So, there it is - the new record of Mike Viola: Electro De Perfecto. Ten tacks. And a quite new direction. It's not like Lurch at all, probably my more Hang On Mike, but still different.
1. Columbus Day Parade: A straight, fast and energetic opener.
2. Get You Back: I demand this to be a single, played by all radio stations. My daughter (18 months old) loves it, too.
3. El Mundo De Perfecto: For me it's the central song of the whole record. Wonderful.
4. Soundtrack Of My Summer: I listen to this song for a while now (it surfaced a while ago on soundcloud). It was the soundtrack of my summer!
5. Closet Cutter: For me it was a grower, just like ...
6. Field of Guns 'n' Roses:... this one ...
7. Me And My Drinking:... and this. I didn't like all three at first very much. Now I do.
8. Here's The Rub: Stuck in my head. Immediately. Be careful!
9. Inside Out: At the moment my least favorite song on the album (but this changes after every listen - in a positive way. How do you do this, Mike?)
10. When The Stars Are Against You: A strong closing of the album. I love the vibe.
It's out in digital form, the physical record (CD and vinyl) will be released on 4th of October. You can preorder it at
