The Middle States HAPPY FUN PARTY; an invitation to good times, or, desperate cry for help? Perhaps both. Recorded and mixed by Tom Herbers (Andrew Bird, Low)the Middle States blindly burn though this thirty-odd minute collection without time to breathe . From time spent playing Elvis and Eddie Cochrane while busking in Berlin, and co founding “Vortex Navigation Company” (on the Australian Camera Obscura label) Wes Morden nails it down rock style. Terry likes to say that it’s “Guided By Voices meets Buddy Holly”, But Wes thinks it might sometimes be like “Slade meets Hermans Hermits” Same difference. From the opening drum stick count off of “In Charge” to the final cello note of “Bring Down the Day” the Middle States keep moving from one mood to the next. Laced with nods to 60’s Jangle and powerpop (No Curse, No drunk, No Fight and Winds of Eiderdown)to the soft-loud dynamic of more recent times (Thought Control). The poppy “Friday Night” bursts the bubble of hometown heroes, while “Tumbleweeds”, with it’s Americana flavor, looks at what it means to be metaphorically and psychologically lost. “Bring Down the Day” is for when it;s past the time to give up on something. Served together, Happy Fun Party is like a well prepared rock and roll buffet.
