High Life High Volume

The Forty-Fives make music that targets a spot between the first wave of Brit invaders and their garage-inhabiting Yank counterparts. Produced by Jim Diamond of Detroit's Dirtbombs, High Life High Volume most certainly showcases that perspiration-powered sound. However, there are also times--specifically, the hooky chorus of "Bad Reputation" and the entirety of the catchy "JunkFood Heaven"--where The Forty-Fives make the case that they could be a top-notch power pop band. Best of all might be "Too Many Miles," a horn-visited soul ballad, and "Bicycle Thief," which comes across like a tune Ronnie Lane might have contributed to the Small Faces.
