February 2017 – Monkey Fightin’ Snakes finish their second album “Broken Off-Switch”
featuring 14 amazing new cuts.
Instead of having a featured rapper, our songs have what used to be called “Guitar Solos” Haha.
Tunes that could do radio?
“Already Too Late”
“Miles Of Smiles“
although there are so many… we could be wrong…
Here are some quick adjectives to describe the songs:
Already Too Late – Dynamic Riff Rocker with Bluesy vibe good guitar solo
Cool Down – Edgey rock – nice hook in the chorus, blues breakdown
More Peace Please – an Instrumental featuring Dobro that bridges east and west, prejudice and compassion, and Cool Down and When You Take Me Away
When You Take Me Away – Blues rock with pop chorus
All Comes Back – Ballad, ’70s vibe
Miles of Smiles – Hippy blues with Hard Rock Riff
DNA Hole – Straight ahead alt rock n roll- kinda “Weezer”.
Schizophrenic banjo and lead guitar!
Hallelujah It’s Today – Awesome old New Orleans Blues vibe.
Mrs. Simpson – Ballad about a repressed English housewife who trades sex for books with a travelling salesman. Think “The Who” circa 1966.
The Best You Got – Folk Rock anthem with some crossover dobro twang
Sally – Soulful Blues Rock with a hint of Exile On Mainstreet
Sooner Or Later – A recounting of a wonderfully smudgey night with a girl, including the dream.
There There – Folk Rock, Jam Band ending
Trying Too Hard – Edgey Rock, Big 1/2 time rock chorus, a little melancholy, but an uplifting conclusion to this record.
