Making Me Wonder
LIME REGAL Making Me Wonder EP Making Me Wonder was recorded and engineered by Lime Regal at Rustbelt Studios in Royal Oak, Michigan. Steve Stetson, Lime Regal's drummer, works at the studio part-time and was able to bring the group in during off hours to record. "We had some great times recording in the middle of the night," Stetson said. "Engineering and producing the album ourselves was difficult but rewarding. Knowing that everything heard on this EP is a direct result of the hard work we put in is a great feeling." Making Me Wonder is a broad musical experience packed into a short six-song EP, giving the listener a chance to experience loud driving rock and roll anthems like 100 MPH, and soft jazz-inspired ballads like Four Leaf Clover. The title-track Making Me Wonder, the album's centerpiece, begins like an alt-rock electro-pop piece and quickly evolves into an explosively tight riff-driven rock song. Written about the group's hometown city of Detroit, it brings to light the positive aspects of the city and a desire to see it come back to life. "My grandparents always would tell me about how beautiful the city used to be when they were growing up, and I want like so many others to see the city's vitality come back," lead-singer Nathan Abramson said. The EP was released at The Magic Bag in Ferndale, Michigan. The performance was rocked out Friday, August 24th 2007 with The Marta Complex. Album Reviews / Press Lime Regal: Band of the Month - RIFF2 HD Radio, August 1, 2007 'Many days after mastering the EP, and after working on several other projects, I was still singing the Lime Regal songs. This is a band that knows how to write a hook!' - Jim Kissling, TemperMill Studios, August 1, 2007 'Since we last checked in with local rockin' up-and-comers Lime Regal, they've cleaned up their sound - just a little bit - and embraced their pop leanings (in a good way). Their new disc... finds the boys in top form, ready to be discovered by radio DJs and major label A&R people. Best to catch them now, because Lime Regal's big rock anthems were meant to fill stadiums, just as their softer pop pieces are surely destined for Top 40 radio.' - Real Detroit Weekly, May 23, 2007 'Crunching big, loud riff-y blues rock with a sort of trippy, kinda angry hippie vibe a la post-Houses Zeppelin or most of The Black Crowes' catalog, Lime Regal could be your next favorite band. Forget about Wolfmother, go for Lime Regal's homegrown rock 'n' roll.' - Real Detroit Weekly, November 15, 2006 'You'll want to check these guys out.' - Mitch, Michiganbands.com, August 13, 2007.
