Leslie Pereira & The Lazy Heroes: Good Karma

Leslie Pereira & The Lazy Heroes have mastered the art of turning punk and garage rock into a heady mixture of upbeat songs. Their new album Good Karma is a throwback to the sound of the early sixties: melodic, catchy and filled with references to their musical forebears, with the riff of Eddy Cochran's Somethin' else in In My Backyard as the most obvious example. Looking back to the early years of rock 'n' roll has been done before by bands like Blondie, Ramones and the Runaways, but the enthousiasm of this quartet is hard to resist.

It's not all fun and rainbows - Slip is about a relationshop going South - and they are not above writing a putdown song like Race Car (albeit with tongue-in-cheek lyrics). But first and foremost Good Karma is about having a good time with floor-fillers like the title track, Hot Tamale and Time To Rock. Leslie Pereira & The Lazy Heroes want the world to dance and with an album like this resistance futile.
