Insomnia on Vinyl




Chaise Lounge – INSOMNIA:  We’ve certainly all suffered a night or two when sleep was elusive, but as you groove to the title track opener, “Insomnia“, the groove will automatically have you counting sheep (or nymphs, if you prefer – lol).  When the crew hits the full-boogie tilt of “43 Good Excuses“, you’ll be reminded of every late-nite diner along route 66, I’ve no doubt.  An even dozen stories in song that will keep you eternally awake as you let the buzz flow through your headphones.  There’s a real original feel on the jazzy & upbeat tunes that I found very attractive.  Strangely enough, I found Chaise’s rendition of “Ode To Billie Joe” to be my favorite… “bouncy” is the keyword.  These folks get a definite HIGHLY RECOMMENDED from my ears, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.96.  Get more information at the Chaise Lounge website.     Rotcod Zzaj
