Rome 56: Days Of Carefree Living
Arthur Lamonica penned "Tell Me Your Plans" for The Shirts that went on to become a CBGB jukebox favorite. That should tell you all you need to know about this enigmatic yet engaging singer-songwriter. His latest group Rome 56 reflects his signature sound with upbeat, catchy and smart tunes that have their roots in an earlier time. You can call it anachronistic rock. Or, Nu New Wave perhaps. However you define it - it's really good. Besides, the man who has just released the twelve track Days Of Carefree Living probably doesn't care what I think anyway. But, I grew up a fan of Squeeze, Elvis Costello and the Smithereens and this release checks a lot of those boxes with a lot of care and clarity. The earworms here are "Dirty Money", "Platinum Girl" and the memorable "Stranger On A Train" that has us hitting the repeat button repeatedly!
