[tweetmeme] [fbshare type=”button”] The Long Play 33 1/3 is a britpop-rock band formed in the second half of 2009 in Budapest (Hungary). The all hungarian members are currently István Békei – Guitars/ Vocals, Zsolt Derecskei – Keyboards/ Guitar/Vocals, Fehér Zoltán – Bass, Balázs Bakó – Drums and pecussion/ Vocals.
The band’s name refers to the shiny black vinyl records of 60’s and 70’s that reproduced the roots of British Rock Music. Long Play 33 1/3 sees it’s influences within that music era and continue to follow it. Performing their own compositions in English.
The band’s latest album is entitled “Being Nowhere” and contains 10 tracks. From the Beatlish “Freaky Guy” to the more Procol Harem sounding “Childish Dreams”. My favorite in absolute is “Soulmates”, which could so easily be a track lifted off a brand new Oasis album, but then it wouldn’t be out of place on any The Hollies album from the 60’s either. This is the quintessence of this Hungarian band. The sound is fresh and clean but with that oh-so-familiar sound ringing in your ear.
If you like lots of acoustic guitars, vocal harmonies and sweet melodies over rock solid rhythms, don’t miss this old school rock-pop sounding band. They might come from afar, but their music is as authentic as the vinyl their band name represents.
Long Play 33 1/3 are also the first band to be invited onto the new Jamspere Music Network platform at www.community.jamsphere.com
