JENNY DEE AND THE DEELINQUENTS
Most Boston music fans will recognize 2010 Boston Music Awards Female Vocalist of the Year Jen D'Angora (aka Jenny Dee) as the singer/guitarist in The Downbeat 5 and The Dents. When her schedule slowed a bit, D'Angora started working on a new batch of songs and indulge in her love of the girl group sounds of the 60s. The Deelinquents formed soon thereafter, with members of Papas Fritas, The Rudds, The Gravel Pit, The Gentlemen and other local bands.
The band's full-length Keeping Time, was released March 2010 on Q-Dee Records. The title track charted in the Top 20 Downloads on Amazon.com. The record features 10 D'Angora penned originals and a cover of The Flamin' Groovies "Shake Some Action" which was originally released as a 7" on the Spanish Label Lovemonk, which lead to a headlining club tour in Spain and an appearance at the Azkena Rock Festival opening for The Breeders.
"There isn't a music on earth that better suits D'Angora's voice than girl-group-era R&B, straight-up, and that's what she's singing here with bonus points for writing songs that hold their own next to the classics. (There's a Daptone-like quality to her recordings that makes you do audio double-takes: are you sure this shit wasn't recorded in 1964?)" Boston Phoenix

SWEET TALK: "Like Sabbath and Purple but Blacker and Deeper." The Boston Phoenix
"With so many bands looking to the 80s for inspiration, rummaging through the dustbins of a more distant past may seem like a revelation. So it goes on the new self-titled album of Boston-based Township (out 10/28) on tracks like "Beaver Fever" and "Sinister Minister," where the songs are as good as their titles' rhymes and the band works up a churning 70s funk while it sweats out classic riffs. With sludgy grooves, scorching solos, and Southern Gothic operas, Township fires off a series of timeless anthems that resonate like sun-bleached Polaroids." Boston Magazine, October 2008
"The band had my attention from the get-go, especially with the song "Highway," which has this irresistible build to it; it's now one of my favorite driving songs. The buzz at the show was late 70s sound, and comparisons to Faces and Lynyrd Skynyrd were made; all I know is, when the band locked eyes with the audience and said "Let's get sexy," (tearing out the song "Big Bad") it made me get sexy, too.Rochester likes you, too, Township." Rochester City Newspaper, May 2008
"Hefty drum beats, devastating guitar explosions, some Who-style vocals and we're just happy as clams to give them some love" Light in the Attic
"Township's awe-inspiring rock histrionics are very present and the hits literally keep comingComing Home is a round-trip ending with a perfect nine-minutes-and-change finale that ends somewhere on the dark side of the moon. But by then, you'll just want to start over again." Northeast Performer
