The Detroit-based quintet -- featuring Eddie Baranek (guitar and vocals), Jarrod Champion (keyboards and vocals), Dean Tartaglia (saxophone and vocals), Kyle Schanta (bass) and Skip Denomme (drums) -- performed live at 88.1 KDHX while on tour in support of their most recent record, "Left Over Right." The session featured 4 songs from that release, including the organ- and sax-led romp "Not As Pretty," as well as the title track, which features a fierce four-on-the-floor rhythm and jagged, squalling guitar.
