B-Cuz - Bettie Serveert

from the album Damaged Goods (2016)

One of my funky recently texted me with an urgent message to check out the Dutch Indie band Bettie Serveert.  He saw them opening for Squeeze in Boston and became enthralled.

So I downloaded their most recent release - Damaged Goods - and boarded a transatlantic flight where I would give them a spin.  Eight hours later, I was landing at Heathrow after a good dozen listens.  It is something of an indie tour de force ranging from epic rockers to Dusty Springfield inspired grooves.

The song I digged most was track one, B-Cuz.  The tone of this record takes me back to early Who songs from albums like My Generation.  In fact, the song almost seems to give a tip of the hat to the song The Kids Are Alright.

I really enjoy how that 50-something year old sound is updated into something fresh and current.

Do yourself a favor and check out the full record.  There are lots of gems here.
