SPRINGTIME CARNIVORE - SINGLE REVIEW

Springtime Carnivore - Name On A Matchbook (Autumn Tone Records) 
Springtime Carnivore - Name On A Matchbook

There is a real sense that a number of artists are harking back to an era when Motown dictated the way pop songs were written and that is no bad thing in my book. Greta Morgan, aka LA songstress Springtime Carnivore, has a single for your enjoyment in the shape of 'Name On A Matchbook' and it's full of cheeky whistling, lush keys, a hip-dipping beat and a gorgeously bouncing bass line. But it's the smooth, sultry and lovelorn voice of Ms Morgan that really sells this as she blends Dusty Springfield with just enough of a modern pop approach to make it feel contemporary. Kick off your shoes, break out the dansette and let's have a boogie in the living room.
