There’s a definite retro feel to The Buddyrevelles, which I find occupies a space between the ‘50s and the light rock of the ‘70s—but that may be just because I can’t hear the name “Buddy” without thinking of the late great Mr. Holly.
Still, with both humor and innocence, the band’s new album, on Solitaire Records, makes for a nice listen on an
afternoon drive in the fall. (And isn’t fall late this year? There’s still a huge tree in my yard, waiting to crap leaves all over my driveway!) The band hasn’t recorded a record since their 1998 debut, “September, November,” on Motorcoat Records. But they don’t seem to have lost their chops. It’s good, solid music.
