Item 9 & the Mad Hatters- Old Style
by Reggie Edwards
Item 9 and the Mad Hatters’ debut album, Old Style, is definitely a fun one listen to.
The album starts out with “O Henri,” an upbeat song that makes you want to see the band live right then-and-there. This is the feel of virtually the entire album, as it makes you want to head out to the show and experience this up-close-and-personal.
For a band that’s relatively new and just put out their first record, and unsigned mind you, they have definitely exceeded any expectations that could lie before them.
Mixing a cohesive sound of blues, rock, classic rock, and funk, Old Style is well-produced, with clean vocals, great instrumental work and leaves you wanting to hear more from this band.
