Album Review: Space Pizza – ‘Space Pizza’
The newest, self-titled, Space Pizza album is a fun and lively five track ride that travels from everyday matters to those deemed private or even taboo. This is rock and roll/indie rock that touches on psychedelic grooves and experimental elements. At some point, I thought I heard video game music samples. If not at other moments, the end of the second track clearly exemplifies a space rock sound. Anyways, whether you truly connect with the subject matter or not the catchy, infectious style of this music is hard to resist.
Space Pizza is a rock and roll quartet from the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA. Said to be, or simply self-proclaimed, “the ultimate party band outside of Philadelphia.” The band consists of members: Craig Labor (drums/vocals), Sean Lally (guitar/vocals), Adam Pluchino (bass/vocals), Mike Ritz (guitar/vocals). I’m not sure how many releases this band has thus far but their Bandcamp page has three other albums/eps. I gave a few of those albums a quick listen and the sound, vibe, and style seems to be consistent with this album.
This self-titled album by Space Pizza was brought to my attention and I’m not sure if I would have found it on my own, but it has been a fun listening experience. So, if you’re in need of some energetic tunes, that are sonically serious, yet bursting with fun then you owe it to yourself to give this album a listen. And just like a delicious pizza, Space Pizza’s self-titled album travels well.
