Biography

TSD have found the time to improve their musical discourse,
maybe by the experience acquired, maybe by Gregg Foreman's (The
Delta 72, Cat Power) divine intervention as producer and keyboardist.
7 years after their debut, they come up with their best
record yet. Unrecognizeable at some times, TSD have picked up
the best of their influences to build songs in an upper level, according
to their impressing live career all around the world, from
Canada to Slovenia, from Russia to the USA. With RM Sinclair
added to the line-up (though he's been with the band for four
intense live-playing years), bass lines are more brilliant than ever,
and fit perfectly with JM Sinclair drums and RR Sinclair polished
guitars. Closer than ever to the Philadelphia Sound and Shaft
soundtracks, this collection of songs is a winner. The amazing
"Dope and love" that opens the album is probably the best melodic
tune TSD have ever written. Hits like "Cold Sweat", with a spectacular
falsetto by RJ Sinclair at his best just pushes it forward. Full
of groove and black pulse, of swing ("Move it"), also less untamed
than on their previous albums (still with wild moments like "It's
gonna be alright") and far more sexual... And, like a cherry on the
top, the beautiful "I think you lie" which could have been written by
Jagger and Richards. A huge album that well-deserved the spanish
band that has played outside Spain in more occasions than in
Spain! Many of us were waiting for an album like this. After their
debut "Le Red Soul Communittee" (BCore, 02), that gave them an
unexpected popularity worldwide, came "Black noise is the new
sound!" (BCore, 04) and "5th Avenue South" (BCore, 05): effective
rock and roll, straight-forward without a quarter, with punk and soul
as main fuel. Since then, a giant step forward has been made with
this record, and we hope the album leads them back to the road
very soon.
