San Francisco’s Still Flyin’ have been performing for about five years, but are only now releasing their first full length album Never Gonna Touch The Ground (out 4/21 on Ernest Jenning Record Co.). Led by Sean Rawls, the dozen-plus rotating member band’s rep is for a strong rock steady/reggae-based sound, but “The Hott Chord Is Struck” is unabashed pop and, in my opinion, an early contender for jam of the summer. Seriously, I want to hear this spreading good times from open windows, on car stereos, and boomboxes on park benches.
“Good Thing It’s a Ghost Town Around Here” is uber-catchy as well, with an appropriately monster-filled video:
The band’s currently on tour and will celebrate their CD release at Cafe Du Nord on May 9th with Nodzz.
