The Paisley Underground is alive and well…in Dayton, Ohio!? (By now, I know I at least have Sean’s attention…) Ruetschle (pronounced “richly”) is the bright-eyed garage pop brainchild of Mike Ruetschle. The first two albums feature Mike’s tight songwriting talents and faux British accent. (I wonder if he ever uses that accent away from the mic, say, while going through the checkout lane of the local IGA.) But it’s not until 2006’s Exotic Destinations that Reutschle hit their groove, introducing harmonies, dynamics, and other fun to the mix. I mean, if “Can You Remember?” can make my 11-month-old—stricken with a nasty post-holiday cold—bob her head and clap her hands, you’ve got my vote…
