The way that any rendezvous sounds in a Beat Connection song makes you want to get completely messed up in one this very second. You'd like to make it five o'clock immediately. You want to throw your phone out the window or from the deck of your boat -- out into the clattering traffic or to the bottom of whatever body of water you're floating on, if you happen to be that lucky. You allow yourself to daydream some as you're listening to these songs here, by this young, unsigned group from Seattle. You sail off onto tangents that land you in places where you're constantly presented with a fresh drink the moment you've finished the last one. These songs of persuasion and perspiration are either elixirs or aphrodisiacs and it's a bit up to you to determine which one you're having.
