Alice Di Micele - Lucky Dogs

Alice DiMicele's new album Lucky Dogs features her incredible band which includes Jeff Pevar on guitar, mandolin, lap steel, dobro and ukulele, Damian Erskine on Bass, Russ Kleiner on Drums, Mikey Stevens on Trumpet and Flugelhorn, and Duke Davis on Saxophones. Mixing folk, funk, and rock, this energetic release features fifteen original songs including a remake of her classic tune "It's A Miracle" from the 1989 release of the same name.

Much like her eleven previous releases, sentiments of peace, love, and justice are abundant. Overall, the sound quality is extremely good, yet from an audiophile perspective is weak in dynamic punch while the soundstage lacks depth, exemplified by placing the horns close without letting them breathe. Setting these knit-picks aside, the fidelity is very good with rich detail and vibrance. For fans of folk rock, listeners won't be disappointed, rather they will find themselves singing along to these well-crafted tunes. This is exactly the kind of release that is sure to make one feel happy and joyous to be alive.

Released May 20, 2011.
