Electric Blue Waves’ first release, “Human Error” is an amalgamation of iconic influences.  The 70’s romance of the Hemi-revved Springsteen streets of the Jersey shore and the lush palm tree lined Beach Boys boulevards of L.A. are not foreign landscapes in these tunes.  Their cynical slant  meshes with an optimistic lean in a fascinating meld of emotion on tunes like “Goodbye Cruel World” and “Human Error” while their innermost imaginings of love and promise come shining through on “It’s Your Energy,” all done with pitch perfect harmonies throughout and stand-up rock grooves that excite and demand repeated plays. 

Their dark but softer side is executed flawlessly as well on “Bad Man” with its raspy Tom Waits-like vocals atop moody instrumentation that goes down like brown sugar.  “Long Distance Man” poignantly evokes the frustration of separation in a gritty, dark, slow blues with strings, horns and slide guitar. Fond memories of a better America translate into “The Promise” in its “tell it like it is” lyrics alongside “God & Country” as a call to arms for those who still care about the values that made this country what it is – or was.  Beatles influences abound on “True,” a pure love song which partners well with the Brian Wilson bounce of “Happy Skies.”   From start to finish this first effort from Electric Blue Waves is not only a masterful piece of work, it is a welcome and long overdue addition to any true music lover’s library.
