“Sometimes too much ain’t enough” LP/CD on stores NOW + updated tour dates
The wait is finally over, and we are delighted to announce that SOMETIMES TOO MUCH AIN’T ENOUGH, The Excitements’ second full-length is out on stores today! You will find it on your local record shop (support them!), Penniman Records’ website, and as a download on several Internet stores such as amazon.com! Go get it while they last!
The Excitements are a hardworking band, almost hyperactive, so when you are in a state of perpetual motion, things happen fast and time flies. Within six months of their first show in March 2010, the group was touring all over Europe, and recorded their first album. The album was a totally unexpected success which led the band across the continent for a year and a half.
It’s sad to say, but “Sometimes Too Much Aint Enough”, the second LP, surpasses its predecessor in all respects, and gives the impression that until now the band was just warming up.
The essence of their sound has not changed substantially over the debut, early Soul, R & B, and a hint of 50s gospel, but now fully developed, sharpened and fine tuned, thanks to two years of intense rehearsing and countless shows.
It would be difficult to pick out a standout song from this album, because it contains twelve potential singles, so we won’t. Just listen to it, and see that everything is here- great originals and covers arranged and performed with a nod to all that you love, and a repertoire that offers everything from sophisticated R&B, soul, gospel, latin, Stax style instrumentals, and tear jerking, hypnotic ballads. Masterfully produced by Mike Mariconda, the band moves freely from a small combo to an orchestra with a sense of dynamics that few bands have today. The explosive voice of Koko Jean Davis demands that you jump, dance, and weep all at the same time, confirming that, indeed, there are times when too much simply aint enough.
