Girl for Samson is the name of an organization that has three music-making Homo sapiens as members. Let's call the organization a 'band' and the three Homo sapiens 'musicians'. Each musician's body contains about the same percentage of water as the general population of humans on this planet. In fact, your body may contain water that was once in our body. The reverse could also be true. We also may be sporting water that was once useful to you. You are practically the 4th Girl. 'Peteena Says' launches Girl For Samson's lively discourse on the subject of circles, cycles and souls. The 12 songs are smart, hooky and are delivered in a variety of styles that include frantic waltzes, clanging pop and psychedelic marches. In addition to the traditional rock and roll gear the band has also packed horns, water splashes, accordions, synths, fish, drum loops, percussive toys, bells and a melotron for this expedition. The trio artfully tips their hats to their influences while still sounding unique and relevant. Customer Reviews of '12' A Fantastic CD i, September 23, 2005 Reviewer: Teresa (Lawrence, KS) Girl for Samson has a unique addictive sound that entices you for more. Not only are they original in their works, their musical talents are endless. I recommend this CD for anyone that wants to sit back and have a good time while listening to upbeat music that will make you smile. Not your 'Dime a Dozen' album., September 22, 2005 Reviewer: Ash Can (Arkansas) Girl for Samson offers a refreshing drink in a parched landsape with '12.' The shadow in the lyrics and musical patterns will cling to you long after you've turned it off and you'll hear something new the next time you play it. Fantastic effort by this KC band. A refreshing step away from everyday alternative/pop, August 26, 2005 Reviewer: modestrachel (Missouri) This album is unlike many of the albums in my collection. The assortment of songs vary in tone and mood, making an interesting listening experience. Wondering when we will see more... A dozen fun tunes, August 22, 2005 Reviewer: Graeme Walker (Ontario, Canada) With it's swift tempo, mood and style changes throughout, Girl For Samson's debut CD is a nice little diamond in the current 'mine full of dirt' that is the music industry. GFS seem to capture the fun spirit of 60's and 80's rock with their tuneful hooks, and brave exploration of eclectic musical styles. Not everything works but when it does - it's very cool. 'Peteena', 'Always' and 'Noggin/ Babble' all grabbed me right away with their catchy refrains. I dare anyone to listen to this CD and not find themselves humming 'Noggin' the next day.... Positively not mainstream but definitely worth a listen or 12. Interesting Album - * * *, August 21, 2005 Reviewer: 'Brenda' (OK) I found the variety of styles on this record very entertaining. Kind of a smorgasboard of 60s-80s rock. The songs and performances are very good though the production at times seems a little muddy. Also, the album seems to start with a bang, wander around in the middle and then finish strong. Overall a fun album and I love the cover! Liked it, August 13, 2005 Reviewer: Eric Simmons (New York, NY) The album's got it's share of stinkers but when these guys are on, they're matching wits with 'the white album' and 'midnight vultures.' Was worth sitting through to find my favs. Avoid the tune 'delerious,' program 'flap' into your ipod. Strident. Fascinating Music, August 10, 2005 Reviewer: Aimee (Kansas City, MO) This album is an unexpected breath of fresh air in the current music scene. I heard one of the tracks from this album on a local radio station, so I took a chance in ordering it, and I love it. The songs are catchy and the lyrics are memorable. This album has an array of song styles and two vocalists; I've listened to it in my car from tracks 1-12 numerous times and have not had the urge to change cds. I'd highly recommend this CD to anyone willing to take a chance on new music.
