Diamond Nights...

It must be a summer thing. Lately I've been in full on power pop mode. Yesterday driving home from work it was one after another. First "Going Under" by Oranger, then the new Lake Trout record, then I put on the Diamond Nights ep Once We Were Diamonds and holy shit does this thing have guilty pleasure written all over it. 5 songs of loud melodic semi-pop-metal goodness. Think The Darkness if their ridiculous attitude was replaced by Fountains of Wayne's pop sense. Or The Old 97's crossed with The Cars if Ric Ocasek had been a satan worshipper. Maybe you get the idea, maybe not. It's only 5 songs so the EP is cheap.

1 song from the EP Once We Were Diamonds:

Destination Diamonds

I have to agree with your choice to highlight Diamond Nights. Their music just plain rocks. "Destination Diamonds" has the best use of the pick scrape I've heard in many years.

Very evocative of Thin Lizzy. A nice return to basic rock roots without all the overproduced fluff and guitar masturbation.

I was driving home early yesterday morning after a long night on the job when I heard Diamond Nights for the first time. Needless to say I woke up my entire neighborhood, *BLASTING* their song Destination Diamonds. This song kicks A$$. I just bought their ep “Once we were Diamonds”, only 5 songs but still a great album. If you get a chance pick it up!
