"The Cheating Intention- She Did It"

The Cheating Intention - She Did It
2009, The Cheating Intention

Ithaca, New York’s The Cheating Intention started out as a way for brothers Aaron and Jason Staniulis to show off. It quickly became apparent as the brothers garnered fans and people who wanted to play along. Two new members later and the Staniulis Brothers were a part of The Cheating Intention. During 2009, The Cheating Intention released their second EP, She Did It.

She Did It opens with "Get Lost", a blast of 1970's light-disco nostalgia that's irresistibly danceable. This is disco organic style, right down to the almost funky jazz guitar chords and the smooth vocals of Aaron Staniulus. "You Make Me" is a mildly funky slow-jam that Barry White would be proud of. "Gone Wrong" is more pop-oriented but built on a seriously funk base. "No Easy Way" closes by lamenting in the difficulties of extricating oneself from a love affair. You'll feel the same way about the end of She Did It. The Cheating Intention makes it difficult to walk away. While there's nothing here that will blow you away, The Cheating Intention provides such a professional and heartfelt performance you'll want them to do it again and again. No flash; just good music.

Rating: 3.5 Stars (Out of 5)

The Cheating Intention is from Ithaca, NY built on the brothers Staniulis [Aaron (Guitar, Keys and Vocals) and Jason (Drums and Vocals)] with August Schneeberg (Bass) filling out the bottom. The Cheating Intention simmers together the new and the old schools of Funk, Soul, and R&B to get their own brand of Soul-funk. It’s the culmination of influences like Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Soulive, Hall and Oates and the Stax and Mowtown catalog hitting the Twitter Age filter and coming out the other side. It’s smooth with an edge, sporting tight grooves to all those who want to move.

This is music for the people, by the people. Songs about both sides of the love game; when you win and when you loose. Music to make you feel good, and most of all music to make you move. It's not looking to be profound or change your philosiphy. It's something you can relate to and something you can groove your date to. Wanna get down sometime?
