Call it garage soul, call it ragged power pop, or simply call it rock 'n' roll. But whatever the label, the appeal of the raucous typhoon that erupts when the Sights kick into gear is undeniable.

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.
