This Room's Too Small for the Two of Us
After spending the past year winning over crowds with their over-the-top live performances, Los Angeles based Population Game releases their first full length album, "This Room's Too Small For Two Of Us;" an organic collection of catchy and soulful power pop tunes that are as original and diverse as the band members themselves. Justin Avery's captivating vocals and acrobatic melodies will command your attention as he belts out infectious and witty hooks that have reminisce of Police-era Sting, Prince and Freddie Mercury. Inventive and well-crafted guitar parts intertwine with piano and vintage keyboards, bold bass lines and pulsating drums to create an unbreakable rapport somewhere between David Bowie and Stevie Wonder. Co-produced with studio mastermind, Ryan Hewitt (Red Hot Chili Peppers, John Fruciante, Alkaline Trio), "This Room's Too Small For Two Of Us" offers something for everyone. From the moment you push play, "Untouchable" launches you into an eleven-song adventure, quickly luring you by it's energetically debonair and almost Vaudeville charm. These guys deliver everything from sinister booty-shakers like "Mistress" and "Nobody," to the upbeat quirk-rock anthem, "Lithuania;" a song that will instantly have you singing along about a long lost love from eastern Europe....."Lithuania, Lithuania...my baby's Lithuanian!" From the dark and intense droning of, "Take My Life" through the stripped down and introspective ballad, "Dreamers and Drug Addicts," this album's assortment will compel and entertain listeners on numerous levels.
