Chris James and the Showdowns call back to the mid-nineties for their track Somewhere out in California. Coming forth with nods to Tesla, Cinderella, and Jane’s Addiction, the act is able to make a song that will dig its hooks deep into listeners’ minds. There is just enough Lynyrd Skynyrd and Blues Traveler whipped into the single to really impart an air of authenticity to this composition. Somewhere out in California shines with soulful keys, sizzling guitar works, and a wizened set of vocals that are utterly timeless. Taut, fun, and memorable, Somewhere out in California is a tremendous sort of introduction to this act.
