Gadjits Today Is My Day

Today Is My Day, the fourth LP by the Gadjits, sees the band complete their evolution from ska to garage and soul. This change is bound to cause some gripes from the ska faithful, but you’ll hear none of that from me. This record is amazing, and the timing seems impeccable, what with the rock’n’roll revival in full swing. Fortunately the Gadjits bring their own flavour to the now-littered landscape; their garage-rock tempered with country influences that can probably be traced to their Kansas City roots. The songs are solid, filled with twanging guitars and lead singer Brandon’s soulful singing, coupled with a rock’n’roll intensity. The only complaint is poor production, but even that can’t keep the songs from shining through. (Thick)
