Shut Up & Listen on CD

There is something undeniably sexual about music, and Newspaper Taxi revels in the similarities. As much passion as there is in a sweaty-palmed first date, it's also in a sweaty-shirted night out dancing to tunes. So why wouldn't you want to write about the things that get up and move you in order to... well, get up and MOVE you? 'Yeah, threesomes, polygamy, the initial adrenaline rush of a dirty kiss stolen in a sweaty club, it's all there in our songs,' says vocalist/rhythm guitarist Ari Simon. 'But it's the basis for how energetic our music is. If all those things get your heart beating a bit faster, then it's the perfect compliment to high-energy rock and roll.' Which is exactly how to describe Newspaper Taxi. Unapologetically energetic and passionate, all they seem to really want to do is move you. Not emotionally, PHYSICALLY. However, how Newspaper Taxi excels is in evoking these themes without resorting to songs full of the standard rock clichés and repeated screaming of the word 'GIRLS!' 'I like to be a bit more subtle than that,' says bassist/vocalist Dan Desveaux, 'after all, what's the point of being able to write songs about stuff if you can't have a little fun with words?' Clearly, fun is an important part of music in the opinion of Newspaper Taxi. Even in the songs with quiet or slower parts, you seem to be confronted with a slithery bass line or clever guitar lick that still makes you tap your feet. Melodies and harmonies battle for attention until you're not sure who's singing lead. Choruses are repeated not out of mindless repetition, but because sometimes, it just feels better to sing something twice. Loudly. Comprised of Simon, Desveaux, lead guitarist Paul Irving, and drummer Krist Ladva, Newspaper Taxi have been honing their songs and showmanship to sweaty, happy audiences, all in preparation for their next step. Having just recorded three songs for a mini-EP with Saam Hashemi (The Miniatures, The Marble Index), Newspaper Taxi are currently and frantically preparing for a full-length album brimming with impassioned songs, designed to move you. In your underwear, around your bedroom. [Any requests please contact Dan at 647.295.3454]
