On She’s About to Cross My Mind, the guys in Red Button are ripping off 1960s bands like The Beatles and Herman’s Hermits in every way imaginable with absolutely no sense of shame and no self respect whatsoever…and it sounds just great. The band is actually the duo consisting of Seth Swirsky and Mike Ruekberg…two fellows who obviously have a mental fixation with British pop groups from the past. What is possibly most interesting about this album is the fact that these guys have managed to capture the idea and energy of the sixties while presenting their material with decidedly twenty-first century production values. The songs sound like old songs…yet the sound quality is top notch and very current. Of course songs are everything…and songs are what make this album such a guilty pleasure. Supremely hummable, upbeat, and happy…we can’t help but be knocked out by tracks like “Cruel Girl,” “Floating By,” “She’s Going Down” (our favorite), “Gonna Make You Mine,” and “It’s No Secret.” Very impressive stuff. (Rating: 5+)
