The Mayflies USA
Walking in a Straight Line (Yep Roc)
By: Alex Steininger
Bright, catchy melodies fleshed out by ample guitar rock. The Mayflies USA's Walking in a Straight Line is a bouncy, fun record ripe with hooks, one that, unlike some pop albums, is sweet and juicy, but doesn't lack the balls to let the guitars roll and the rock make a dominant presence. Though, for the majority of this album, the rock plays the submissive role, always present, but much more content in the background, as the pop takes center stage, vocal harmonies and jangle-y guitars swimming in your head as you sing along and tap your feet. This is a powerful, highly addictive piece of pop art. You'll thank yourself for giving it a listen. I'll give it an A-.
