Make Rocket Go, Self Titled


While it is true many feel the music industry is in disarray it’s always a breath of fresh air to hear a new band or artist that’s not afraid to take chances with their musical expression. With 4 piece band from Springfield. MO. Make Rocket Go’s latest self titled musical offering Circus, it’s clear to me they have surpassed what many consider to be the a-typical musical release. From the beginning to end Make Rocket Go gives you a musical rock n’ roll love anthem with a string of catchy rock songs that will keep the listener entertained. Also present are messages that are uplifting and a vibe that is unmistakably Psychedelic, electrifying and no holds barred indie based. Make Rocket Go combine many impressive musical styles: like retro Pop of the 70’s and even Mo-Town, Blues, Jazz and traditional Soul Rock. Some pieces I really like are “Aint Love Grand”, “Erin’s Gate”, “Psychotic” and I’m Alright with its amazing message and 70’s feel. “Bottles” “Aint Love Grand” and Everything You Do” expand the possibilities for a   possible radio hit in the making. The production is top notch ‘dirty” and the playing from all other band members just hits the spot. Make Rocket Go create a sound that will make virtually any listener feel right at home. As vocalists both Sewell and Guistolise deliver a gifted vocal tandem that glides with precision. Together they perform a multitude of amazing harmonies and possess warm vocal timber overall. If you like Jack Johnson, Norah Jones, Jason Mraz, Colbie Caillat, and The White AStripes you will like Make Rocket Go. Much of Make Rocket Go simply goes beyond traditional playing and songwriting. Lyrics are Vibe also an important component for me whenever I listen and review music. In this aspect Make Rocket Go hit it out of the park while painting you an impressive visual between the spoken word and messages of life, love and the love of life itself. Make Rocket Go delivers amazing music for the senses that has no boundaries — very much like life itself.
