EP Review: 'Six PACK Volume 3' by Straight No Chaser

What is the purest form of music? That would be A Capella. Yes, using your vocal chords (voices) to their fullest ability to create beautiful music should be regarded as its own art form. This art form has embraced for many generations, and respect of this art form still needs to be celebrated today. There are many different groups out there that do this, and thanks to NBC show "Sing Off", "Glee", and the "Pitch Perfect" series of movies, A Capella has been gaining mainstream accolades. 

As explained before on this blog, Straight No Chaser began as buddies in college singing for girls and beer. However, when a reunion many years later prompted one member to post videos of their humble beginnings on YouTube, the head of Atlantic Recordings signed them for a contract. Needless to say, they have been recording and touring since 2008 professionally.

'Six PACK Volume 3' is just that, an EP of 6 songs with their signature SNC twist. They continue to produce great arrangements for their roster of talented members. As many members have explained on the podcast Trending Topics with BB, they are more known for their covers, however their original songs are just as brilliant. You will be singing along with "Sweet Dreams/Handclap Medley", "All Time Low", "That's What I Like", "Total Eclipse of the Heart", "Twistin' The Night Away", & "Beyonce Medley". Have you picked up your copy yet?
