Bennett Wales & The Relief

A ten track album (available on bandcamp) that offers the listener a wide range of songs as the disparate influences come to the fore.

The quintet are at home with pulsing rock roaring through the speakers, as they are with the rumble of delta-blues and equally funky-RnB resultingly the audience doesn’t feel jarred by the changes in texture, rather leaning forward and turning up the volume just a little bit more to delight in the mix of material.

The closing track is the uptempo rock’n’roll foot-stomper – Sugar Walls and my pick of the release.

Tommy Zamp – Tattoos Of Stars – Audio

The US blues-rocker Tommy Zamp releases the LP You Don’t Know Me on the 28th of November.

Tommy Zamp - Gnotti

Tommy Zamp – Gnotti

An eleven track album highlighted by the guitar which winds itself in to coils that defy sound-acoustics and merely requires the listener to have wood-shavings underneath the feet to grind to sawdust through the just under over three quarters of an hour of its duration.

Whilst not my personal selection, those who have engaged with the site for a while do know I have an elderly Pekingese – Gnotti – who lays alongside me as I put fingers to keyboard to write about the music and is of far sharper of hearing than I – never missing a beat – and for reasons which will become evident as the track develops – decided to interact audibly with the second song in particular – making it his pick of the LP – Tattoos Of Stars.

Good Times, a riff laden number, is the first track to surface from a forthcoming LP.

Blue Nation are able to balance heavy rumbles and shimmering highs delivering music in which the listener finds plenty to engage as the trio create, in Good Times, a song which although lasting only three and a quarter minutes is richly textured with varieties of emphasis keeping the audience fully absorbed in the unhurried eloquence.

Lord Willing – Green Doesn’t Look Good On You – Audio

The US blues-rocker Lord Willing revealed a new track a few hours ago.

Perhaps appropriately named as Lord Willing – the LP – Are You Happy? which is now posited as slimmed to an EP – was planned for release on the 31st of May – yet now in mid-September and only now – from the still forthcoming release has just surface Green Doesn’t Look Good On You. Blips on the road take nothing away from the quality of the music as the song saunters through the room.

On listening to the song you will also ponder whilst reaching for another glass of whisky, no let’s make that a whiskey, this delay all makes perfect sense as the frayed skipped beat fills the focus. There is no rush and if the Lord Willingly decides that the full release doesn’t surface until sometime next year, that is all fine and dandy – Jack Daniels all around please, as we await. To answer the rhetorical question of the full release name – yes I am – especially now.

Green Doesn’t Look Good on You – Single – Lord Willing is available on iTunes.*

The Cosmic Coronas – Desperation Blues – Audio

The US blues-rock sextet The Cosmic Coronas released the EP The Grove on the 30th of May.

The compositions are centred around a powerful vocal which is able to take the spotlight without drowning out the complex interweaving of acoustic and electric guitars, sultry bass and framing percussion enabling the audience to discover more layering through each play of individual songs.

The Grove is a five track release (available on bandcamp) which takes the listener through tracks of heart-wrenching soul, rock-ballads and more – including dirty-blues and it is perhaps inevitable that my pick of the release would be the most gravelly – the second – Desperation Blues.
