On their debut, Popsicle, the members of Diamond Nights walk the line between imitation and influence as if it were in its own ring in the circus. The ghost of Thin Lizzy is present within in the first few driving guitar rhythms of opener “Destination Diamonds.” When singer Morgan Phalen hits a clean falsetto on the chorus, asking, “Baby, do you like to mess around?” all comparisons to Phil Lynott are welcomed and necessary. What follows are eleven more finely crafted songs that sound like 1976 was just last spring. -Prefix
