POWER OF POP MUSIC ALBUM REVIEW: THE LEES OF MEMORY – UNNECESSARY EVIL

ALBUM REVIEW: THE LEES OF MEMORY – UNNECESSARY EVIL

The Lees of Memory

Background
The Lees Of Memory — which features erstwhile Superdrag frontman John Davis & guitarist Brandon Fisher, along with drummer Nick Slack — recently released its sophomore LP, Unnecessary Evil. The new album, a follow up to the band’s 2014 debut Sisyphus Says, once again saw them working with Grammy-winning producer Nick Raskulinecz and his team at Rock Falcon Studios in TN.

Strengths
Emphasising the main characteristics of the 90s pop-rock/powerpop scene from which Superdrag emerged from, The Lees of Memory have all the free-wheeling energy that new bands are often imbued with. Thus, melodic hooks and guitar crunch dominate throughout with the requisite vocal harmonies and percussive heaviness that make true blue rock ’n’ roll fans headbang and singalong lustily at about the same time! No danger of a sophomore slump here!

Highlights
“Any Way But Down”, “XLII”, “Just For a Moment”, “Unnecessary Evil”.

Sounds Like
The Beatles, Big Star, Dinosaur Jr., Teenage Fanclub, Superdrag (!)

Bottom Line
The Pop Underground is certainly thriving when pop-rock fans are treated to authentic power pop gems like the kind found in Unnecessary Evil.
