"CD Review - Shiny New Apartment"

Local Somerville band Max G and the Spots’ debut album Shiny New Apartment is a worthy first effort. Frontman Max Glantzman had been a solo artist before getting together with his Spots to form what he’s dubbed “a supergroup of sorts” combining the talent of seasoned musicians Steve Breman, Mark Lipman, Shawn Leonard, and Lance Vallis. The record also features saxophone player Dana Colley and backup vocals by Christian McNeill (who also produced the album). In a sea of bands that are being praised these days for merely being able to find the G chord (no puns intended), Max G and the Spots rise above and are definitely a band to watch for. The songs on the album, described by Max on the inside cover, seem to be love letters to Boston from his early 20s. The tunes are catchy and have MySpace byline worthy lines like “I’m getting older there’s no denying it and yet I sure as hell am not getting less confused” which comes from the song “Here I Am ”. After one listen, you’ll feel the need to play “The Rent Song” at the first of every month and start conversations by talking about “Existentialism and Hot Naked Fun”. Shiny New Apartment will have you humming bass lines for days (in my case, weeks) and hoping for a shiny, new future for Max G and the Spots.

Max G and the Spots - Shiny New Apartment - Released April 15th, 2007
The debut full length album, 8 tracks.



Through catchy songwriting, tight rhythms, quirky lyrics, smiling musicians, laid back rock and roll, weird cover songs, big harmonies, doo-wop songs, and sing-a-longs, a Max G and the Spots show is really fun to go to. Our songs look at life’s complexities with a sense of humor and a desire for simplicity. Our audiences always sing, dance, laugh, and shout obscene things at us. We’d love for you to come out and join our community, one that is truly unique, supportive, and amazing (and we can’t thank them enough!).

Our current lineup features a departure from the earlier sound of the band, with Max G playing acoustic guitar and singing, Steve Breman playing bass guitar, Chris Harris playing drums, and on most shows, Nicole Berke and Jess Baggia singing harmony vocals. We love having guest performers from our home music scene in Somerville join us when they can, and who that ends up being varies from show to show.
