Baby Teeth

In continuation of CSV's posts about Chicago bands, I'd like to present you Baby Teeth. The harmonizing trio will often times bring you back to a 75 degree evening along Lake Michigan despite the chilly below-zero weather that this magnificent city is facing right now. There most recent album, wittingly named The Baby Teeth Album, is a collection of frenetic bluesy soul-pop songs that hit more times than they miss.

The album is a model work of versatility--it's a genre spanning one that ranges from frequent harmonies and catchy organs. Take a listen to "Celebrity Wedding" and you'll hear a pumpin' bassline with a catchy "Do-do-do-do" that will be sweetly chirping in your head as the chorus breaks into an organ-induced chant. Or listen to "Butter X" which is more of a ballad type arrangement that explodes from "Oo-wa-oo" into a rocked out bridge.

The Baby Teeth Album
seems dated in some ways--it isn't quite the typical sound you hear nowadays but rather an improvement on its funk-rock predecessors. Either way, you're bound to have fun with this album.

Go and get yourself a copy of The Baby Teeth Album. Also, be sure to look out for The Simp which comes at you March 17.

Listen to "Celebrity Wedding" (4.5 / 5)
Listen to "Mighty Time" (4 / 5)
