Playdeaf – Super Sexy Market

Band: Playdeaf
Album: Super Sexy Market
Shot of choice: Jack Daniels

Previously we said another band was the first band to request a review/shots from us. We were wrong. It turns out that Playdeaf sent us an email that went straight to our spam mail. As a result, we missed their album release party that took place on August 13th. We felt pretty bad about this, so I thought I should at least give Super Sexy Market a listen, and I’m glad I did.

Playdeaf is a 3-piece rock band led by frontman Jeff Payne (vocals, guitar) with Helder Defrietas (drums) and Chris Lam (bass, keys). Overall, Super Sexy Market sounds like a “guys album,” as the common themes in the lyrics seem to be women, sex, good/bad relationships from the male perspective, etc. That does not mean women can’t appreciate Playdeaf, though. They put together a rock album full of catchy riffs and solid vocals, which are personally my favourite part of the album. Jeff’s voice is hard to ignore and I think I’ll be bold enough to say that it is somewhat akin to the Josh Hommes of the world. If nothing else, Jeff’s voice is something to appreciate.

The album has a rock anthem feel, as a lot of tracks sound so heavy and bold. I would say this is an album that is probably best heard as a whole, rather than by individual songs. These guys find a way to rock pretty hard, but also know when to slow it down a little with some brooding tracks. Actually, after you listen to the album, be sure to check these guys out live. There is no doubt in my mind Playdeaf knows how to rock the stage. Don’t forget to buy them shots!
