- African Queen in a Brazilian Dream EP review
- Carpool Conversation's second E.P. is steeped in 60's psych-garage rock but also jumps into ska on at least more than one occasion. Opening track 'Night Owl' sets what is an unrelenting tone through the whole 4 songs on the recording, feverish drumming and guitar riffs that bring forth The Yardbirds 'For Your Love' and the United States of America (the band, not the country). Lead single 'African Queen in a Brazilian Dream' is a delightful skiffle that mixes ska leanings with the aforementioned psych-rock, like if The Specials were given a new synthetic hallucinogen and asked to play 'Miserlou' backwards. 'Toil' is a nice piece of fun as well, and the most ska feeling song on the E.P., hard not to conjure images of Madness on this one with a tiny hint of light-hearted Clash. Altogether a very entertaining, sometimes explosive and cool contemporary homage to an under-appreciated sound.
- Band of the week- Carpool Conversation/ Right Chord Music
- Truly deserving of the description â€˜diverse,â€™ Carpool Conversation lack the usual signs of mainstream conformity. As a band, they do not attempt to fit in where they do not belong. Instead, they create a musical home of their own. Although that home may seem a tad kooky, it is warm and inviting, and any contemporary music fan should visit at least once. If you have been searching for the next musical bombshell, you may have just found it.
