"Perfect Voice"

"Ted Donat possesses the perfect pop voice and sings catchy pop ditties." - Gordon's Flash (Tip Sheet)/What's Hot That's Not Signed/Favorite Bands & Demos

"Leaves you wanting more..."

Rating: 9 out of 10

On "Let’s Do It!," The Slow Burn deliver a well-balanced mix of blues, alt-country and three part harmonies. Based out of the Washington DC area, each member brings both experience and unique qualities to the table.

Lead guitarist Paul D’Andrea indulges in the occasional solo and trades off well with rhythm guitarist Ted Donat. The rhythm section is comprised of bassist Dennis Feeney and Dale Juarbe behind the drum kit. For the most part the album draws comparisons to The Shins, Ryan Adams and Barenaked Ladies. The band’s sound is bolstered by three part vocal harmonies by Donat, D’Andrea and Feeney.

The album starts off with the rocking country groove of “(When We Get Bored) We Get Dangerous.” The heart of the album is mostly a low key affair highlighted by “Love is a Season,” and “Desire.” The Slow Burn kick everything up a notch with the road running beat of “Mama’s Working for the Man.”

They save the best for last with “Darwin’s Pet,” in my opinion the most complete song on the album. The energetic intro gives way to blistering guitar and sixties style pop hooks. They add saxophone for “Drowning,” the last track, and take a shot at scat singing between Barenaked Ladies-esque vocals. The end leaves you wanting more, which is all a band could ever ask of their work.
