Super Best Records’ Michal Menert has come together with a 6 piece band known as Michal Menert & the Pretty Fantastics.  A debut album is expected next week before their 36-stop tour kicking off at Coda in Philadelphia on October 1.  I broke my own rule about waiting for the album in its entirety, and don’t regret a thing.  The first single, “Shanghai,” gives us a sample-free glimpse into the singer-songwriter that is Michal Menert.  Uplifting synths and horns accompany a pleasant vocal melody to create a sound completely original to the scene.  Lyrics colorful as they are thoughtful, this tune has me so jazzed up for the rest of what’s in store.
