On Ambulance LTD's first LP, you can hear influences from the Stones to My Bloody Valentine to Elliot Smith to Spiritualized. NME says they are "White Album Beatles given a 21st Century Makeover." The band admits drawing inspiration from all genres, Motown, 60's psychedelia, 70's rock, 80's Britpop/New Wave, and 90's shoegazing. "The guys learned a lot from the 70's, and they're not just talking the Ramones and other punk rockers or the glam rock of David Bowie, but another side of the decade, the side the NYC rock scene doesn't usually cop to: the blue eyed soul of Hall and Oates, the pure pop of Seals and Crofts, the jazz-rock of Steely Dan and the classic rock of Fleetwood Mac. That's my kinda band, give this great LP a listen. - TK
