Against Musical Advice's debut CD "Comfort Measures" has a little something for everyone, reflecting the varying musical influences that each band member brings to the table. Think Happy Hour buffet. Start with the straight ahead rocker "Thank God for the Tragically Hip" with a catchy hook you will be humming for days. Compliment that with the somewhat angry syncopation of "Little Pink Lawyers". Lawyers...pigeons... same thing. Next on the table is the alternative rocker "Wish upon a Star" featuring relentlessly building guitar, lush harmonies and sweeping strings. The crunchy guitar-laden "Priceless" follows the loosely-based-on-a true-story "Eleanor". Complete the course with some Southern fried slide guitar of "Shades of Gray". Time for dessert? Slow it down with the beautiful instrumental "Awakening", the ballad "Driving this Love Home", and the unabashed love song "Marilee". Need some coffee now? End with "Code 99", guaranteed to send electricity coursing through your system. Still hungry? You can always go back for seconds.
