The Rightovers – Album Review
“…Holmes’ lyrics sing of an easy drive through a Utah highway, spinning vinyls…”
At first listen the 10-song LP release Blue Blood from The Rightovers is an easy piece of music to get on board with. Within an 8 second intro, as the first track “Valerie” scratches into your speakers, you know this album will take you to a warmer place; a back porch, a swing with your toes in the sand, where everything bears a soft tint of yellow. After that first hook a simple, melodic beat and even vocals take you through “Valerie” and bring you to my favorite track on the album. Already you want to take this album out of your Monday-night kitchen and into Saturday’s backyard bonfire.

Rightovers Offer Up Excellent New Rock
This is not what I think of when I hear Hawaiian music – okay, I guess I never really thought much about music from The Aloha State.
That’s about to change, because the new music in my InBox from The Rightovers is some of the freshest stuff I’ve heard all year. Their sound is distinctive Alternative/Indie rock with an intoxicating pop feel. I’m drawn to comparisons with The Last Royals, who had a Top 10 Alt-Rock hit, and surely more impressively to them – a spot on our year-end Best Albums list.
