ROCK & RAP CONFIDENTIAL REVIEW OF WHAT’S IN BETWEEN

What’s In Between, Pedaljets (Electric Moth Records)–“I’m gonna change this to a dream that never dies/I’m gonna punch that fucker right between the eyes,” goes the refrain of the propulsive opener. What follows sounds more than a little like the Stooges and the Beatles hashing out all the obstacles to landing that punch—the many misdirections of the catchy, yet pleading, “Conversations”; the heart’s confusion on the stately, “Goodbye to All of That”; the loss of direction in “Measurement”; and the allure of well-intentioned fantasies in the haunting “Some Kind of One.” Through all the fears and doubts, the will to fight remains the key, giving this veteran Kansas City rock and roll band its hardest rocking, most lush, eloquent and unifying statement yet. Lee Ballinger, September, 2013
