Artist: The Marlowes (www.themarlowes.com)
Title: Nuclear Suitcase
Label: Shiny Fly Records
Genre: Pop Rock
Audio: Nuclear Suitcase (MP3)

Nuclear Suitcase is like being held captive on the last beach party on earth. They are playing loudly, with sped-up Beatles fun to usher in the apocalypse that must be coming.

The Marlowes have had airplay in France, Brazil, Japan, Australia and Spain. Played the International Pop Overthrow Festival in LA. And have racked up an impressive list of reviews so far. You wouldn't think of bands like this coming from Rhode Island, would you? Well, they do. Bill Jette (lead guitar, voice), John Larson (lead voice, guitars), John DiGiulio (drums), Keith Larson (bass, voice).

They've got some help on certain tracks in the guise of keys and sax and that, but the songwriting is really the star. Even John's voice (which can sound like the strained softness of George Harrison when the notes get high) can't compete, bring down or otherwise outshine these 14 songs and 48 minutes.

It all begins with title track 'Nuclear Suitcase,' a slow, rocky stomp into the field of battle. 'I've got a nuclear suitcase / I'm trying to unload / I've got a nuclear suitcase / that's ready to explode.' Like 'Norwegian Wood' or the like, The Marlowes sense of hooky construction makes it so that in the first minute, you know it. The rest is just guilty frosting you lick up quick.

All songs are like that. Just depends on which speak to you best. If you want me to pick out hits or the so-called Best, that's impossible. I could do without the vocal on 'Holding Pattern,' but I can't do without the song and the rest of the tunes. So (Shrugs) - buy it and hear for yourself. You're going to hear from the Marlowes later anyway. Why not get a head start?
