The Cartridge Family`s Shine Like a Bottle takes you back to a time when hyphens had not yet been invented, an era when a description as straightforward as `rock and roll` would suffice. Here`s what you don`t get with Shine Like a Bottle: a whole lot of frills. Here`s what you do get: guitars that could never be accused of being shy. Sneaky hooks. Keyboards with the same personality as the guitars. Echoes of the Faces and Blonde on Blonde and rock bands that like country music but don`t feel like they have to prove it and a dozen other things that represent what`s always been good in the music world. This is a band that works hard and plays hard. And because of that, Shine Like a Bottle, like the Cartridge Family, is serious fun.
"M ixes a punk ethos with good ol Rock n`Roll. The kind of Rock playing right now in some garage near you. Like I said it is good roots rock. The Cartridge Family hails from Raleigh, North Carolina. They are a nice addition to the thriving North Carolina roots scene. In the era of shoegazing atmospheric indie rock (a lot of which I like), it is nice to do what I`m doing as I write this review, pop a cold one and tap my foot to a good beat. So if that sounds good to you too, hop on the Cartridge Family bus. (David Cassidy and Susan Dey not allowed on this ride.)"-Twangville.
