You all remember the popular song, The Way, blasting up the alternative and pop charts in 1998. Blessed with such early success, Fastball has faced that dreaded task of following up their immensely popular sophomore album and kept on chugging into the new millennium. Supported by their new label Rykodisc, the Austin, TX-based trio hasn't lost and step and their latest effort, Keep Your Wig On, is a terrific blend of mainstream pop bliss while showcasing the band's depth with more experimental sounds like Motown-esque melody and harmonies in Lou-Ee, Lou-Ee, bluesy chops in I Get High and even some latin flavor on Red Light. The album's tracks flip-flop lead vocals between Miles Zuniga (guitar) and Tony Scalzo (bass) and shower us with their trademark harmonies while drummer Joe Shuffield keeps the songs tight and the tempo consistent throughout. For anyone who enjoyed Fastball's older work (and I know you do), this is a terrific new beginning for the veteran rockers and takes their sound to even greater heights.
