The Sunday Flyers is a group of seasoned musicians that pump out some pure Americana soul music. Based out of Norman, Oklahoma, the band gets together every Sunday to practice, hence the birth of The Sunday Flyers. This is not the bands’ first album and they have garnered quite a following in their hometown. The Chouse Sessions was recorded in an old church building, which perhaps has enhanced the creative process of both producing and mastering the tracks on this album.
The music on this album really fits into the folk genre; it almost has a bluegrass feel to it as well. The genuine feel of the instruments, the style of the vocalist and harmonization emulate the truthfulness of down-home country soul music. The first track on the album titled “It Ain’t Up To Me and You” has a soothing appeal that gives the listener the feeling of simply floating or dissolving into the clouds. The guitar gives some twang to the song and the lyrics illustrate a quirky metaphor to describe a condition everyone is familiar with; “the world keeps twirling around the sun it ain’t up to me and you… Keep it plain and simple take it nice and slow, get your seeds into the ground and watch your garden grow.” The addition of the harmonica gives this song some character and makes it a perfect song for a lazy afternoon.
The track “She’s Got That Thing” reminds me in way of a Bee Gees song yet has a more southern and country rock appeal. The lyrics “shaking like a leaf on a tree, shake it down on me” are fun and uplifting and then right after the breakdown begins the song is accentuated by a harmonica. This is a song that is easy to dance to and has an upbeat spirit that just wants to make you grab your lover and hit the dance floor.
The Chouse Sessions can be enjoyed by any classical rock lover or any blues or country enthusiast. The songs are well produced and for being recorded and mastered on a low budget, the quality is commendable. The sound is something similar to the sound of a vinyl record, which is the effect the band was looking to achieve, so in this regard the recording process was a success. The album is a fun listen and can really set the vibe for a classic country party.
