“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. It’s all about pop music contemporary with and dating back to The Beatles. That’s how it sounds – no, not as if The Red Button look 40 years back in pop history, rather as if the songs were written, sung and played just then and as if then was now. I usually don’t like that, the fact that the music finds itself in the past rather than the present or the future. But the songs are so good and they stick so instantly and directly that I just can’t resist it. The record of the summer, said that?”

– Bengt Eriksson / Rootsy
