Beautiful vocal harmonies, ringing guitars all over the place and especially downright great songs, one still prettier than the other.

This is power pop of the highest order, the kind of album you’d find in the late ‘90s before the scene collapsed on itself.

Review on Take The Pills

Wow, this is one of the best 60s/Beatles-influenced records I’ve heard in a while – in fact, if it weren’t for the crystal clear production, I might’ve even been fooled to think a few of these songs were authentic! These songs meet every single requirement for a perfect 60s/jangle pop record. Pristine vocal harmonies? Check. Chiming 12-string guitars? In abundance! Catchy three-minute songs with bittersweet lyrics about girls that you either long for or wish to stay away from? See tracks 1-11.

Seth and Mike. Two credish guys who’ve written songs for others for a long time. Now, they’ve put they’re clever brains together, resulting in their debut album “She’s About To Cross My Mind”. And it’s much about “her” on the album. She’s cruel, she haunts you in your memories, she’s depressed, she’s beautiful, she’s manipulative…

Beatles vs. Stones? Who cares? It’s all great! Just to show that I have no allegiances, I will state that though my new favorite record is by this L.A. duo called The Red Button who play note perfect Brit pop–and they’re both huge Beatleheads to boot–shocking, I know (please do check out their new disc, She’s About to Cross My Mind–totally rules, right?)…

This album could have easily topped the charts back then. Sadly, it has no such chance now. If it means anything to them, it’s currently topping my personal chart…

Seth Swirsky and Mike Ruekberg are Beatles worshippers through-and-through, and they’re not afraid to show it. She’s About to Cross My Mind is filled to capacity with McCartney-esque pop tunes, ‘‘60s harmonies, and as many hooks as they can get their hands on.

With the brilliant beach music feel, this song is the perfect summer song for a romantic. “I think about her more and more and more every day. I tried to deny it, but I can‘t pretend, I know I’ve got to find a way to see her again.” Shoutout for I Could Get Used To You – another summer excitement, complete with Harrisonesque guitar flavorings and psychedelic vocal spices – “ten thousand sunny skies appear“.

“”I think this must be this summer’s record in the car speakers. The album is dated 2007 and circa 1965-66 simultaneously. The band – or should I say the duo – of Seth Swirsky and Mike Ruekberg – is American, but the music is made in Liverpool or possibly London, USA. “

Combining the classic 60’s sound with sparkling production and straightforward songwriting, this is the perfect CD for those who want new music, but want to relive the 60’s. “Cruel Girl” is as good as single I’ve heard in years.

A song that is both modernly adventuresome and manages to elicit memories of Bacharach and the Beach Boys at the same time is exciting to my ears.

…fantastic power pop tune from Los Angeles-based Red Button, the project of Seth Swirsky (who has written songs for everyone from Rufus Wainwright to Al Green) and Mike Ruekberg (who scored the indie film Dummy with Adrien Brody). From the lush string opener that echoes Eleanor Rigby, on into the jangly harmonies, I love the unabashed goodness of this little gem.

The hooks never let up here—there’s Badfinger-inspired power pop (“Free”), sweet ‘60s grooves (“Gonna Make You Mine”) and longing, heartfelt ballads (“It’s No Secret”) and it all sounds so good you’ll swear you’ve heard it before.

The Red Button brings back the 60’s. Two pop songwriters Seth Swirsky and Mike Ruekberg teamed up and the end result was a slice of pop heaven entitled She’s About To Cross My Mind.

Dig the farfisa garage-rock stomp of “Gonna Make You Mine”, the opening strings of “Ooh Girl” (“I bury my face in the pillowcase / I miss her all day long”), the Tijuana Brass horns on the Elvis Costello doppelganger “Floating By”, the Big Star-ish “Can’t Stop Thinking About Her”, the Lennon worthy “Hopes Up” and the absolutely perfect pop of “She’s About to Cross My Mind”. I didn’t think they made records like this anymore.

More please.

a big, lush, pop music that owes allegiance to the United Kingdom (did you ever notice that Queen Elizabeth has some really big tits?). Although, I can’t pretend to know where they’re from, but there’s some pretty pop on this CD, “She’s About to Cross My Mind”, the latest from these two guys, Seth Swirsky and Mike Ruekberg who, together call themselves The Red Button.
