Album Review: L.A. Takedown - II

Album Review: L.A. Takedown - II

II offers a new, bigger sound for L.A. takedown, as Olson is now joined by six other people in his band, which now consists of three guitarists, two keyboardists, a drummer and a bassist. When listening to this album you can’t help but feel the infectiousness of the group sitting around together just jamming out these songs. There’s a technicolor sheen to their sound that puts it firmly in the cinematic, but it doesn’t have the serious edge of something like the soundtrack for Drive.

- L.A. Takedown's new album II is pretty good fun; read my full review on The 405
