The Artist I recently checked out the debut-self titled release from New York's husband and wife duo Wet Pinkey.  This band is headed up by vocalist Masashi Ohtsu and guitarist Chisatsu Ohtsu. CD was released in 2011. 


The band Masashi and Chinatsu bring to the table some impressive writing and playing. I would say this band clearly possesses average playing and above average writing abilities. You will find many impressive grooves and a highly addictive playing style presented along the way. Timing is spot on within each one of these Psychedelic, Alternative rock grooves. They both definitely hold their own remarkably well as a duo and they definitely have something special. The music possesses a very marketable Alternative Rock, Grunge, vintage 70's sound that stands out in a very good way.  Some pieces even cross the line into Punk and maybe Trippy Blues. All in all great music to crash a late night party to. Music is timeless, very upbeat, emotional and easy to grove to. It will remind you of No Doubt, The White Stripes, Paramore and even Led Zeppelin, Beck and Deep Purple The songs Simply put - all songs are well rounded with amazing highs. There’s nothing like a good musical production to fill your sonic space,  this is definitely one of them. Simply put, very much like life itself this CD personifies the human experience, with music that captures the true essence of Rock n' Roll. The production professional grade from start to finish with crystal clear recording quality. There's not many songs you can listen to time and time again. The good Overall and remarkably consistent, well rounded musical production that's like a blur or a being on rollercoaster ride on Acid. Honorable mentions go out to the remarkable vocal presence of Chinatsu and impressive musical flavors presented by Masahi and the rest of the band. The bad Nothing to report. The ugly Nothing to report. 


The verdict Wet Pinkey is one of those bands that stands out - period. This debut release clearly proves these two are a force to be reckoned with locally. Both  have star quality and should be considered a marquee quality band. Their musical personality shines brightly with a rare brilliance comparable to a priceless gem. This release clearly sets a standard within the genre and remains one of the newest and freshest sounding CD's I've heard this year. Folks who want a jagged edge vintage 70's sound with a modern-grunge twist will love this release. It's quite marketable in that respect. The Bottom Line This CD is freaking out of control. Every now and then it's an absolute pleasure to get into a band that's not afraid to let it all hang out - and don't give a F*** what anyone thinks about it. That Ladies and Gentleman is what  Rock n Roll is all about!. Need I say more?
