Regional Beat: Chris Hatton and the Italian Sound Machine 

Womown (self-released)


This EP from veteran local singer-songwriter Chris Hatton starts out with the snarling "Feel It," a bit of funky stuff anchored by a beefy guitar riff. Recorded at the Analog Beard Recording Facility in Seven Hills, the album features the contributions of the Italian Sound Machine, Hatton's new band. It's a great pairing (the loopy instrumental "Delivering the Finisher" shows how much fun these guys are having). Elsewhere, "Combine with You" benefits from an initial burst of guitars before settling into a lazy, hazy groove. "I don't know where we're going but I know I'm going to be with you," Hatton sings defiantly over nasty guitars.  

Chris Hatton and the Italian Sound Machine perform with We the People at 9 p.m. Saturday, July 20, at Brothers Lounge.
