Two years ago, Philly classic-rock revivalists Free Energy released Stuck On Nothing, an absolutely spotless and weirdly underrated album full of direct-to-the-brainpan bubblegum hooks and blazing dirtbag guitar solos. I absolutely fucking loved it. Today, we get the first taste of the band’s sophomore album, and their M.O. remains blissfully unchanged. “Electric Fever” has cowbells and whoa-oh backing vocals and chicken-scratch funk guitars and a solo that would not sound out of place on the Dazed And Confused soundtrack. It’s great, and you can download it below.
Free Energy’s album Love Sign is on the way, and it can’t arrive soon enough.
