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.

Well established in Denmark though less familiar outside their home country. If justice is served Decline Of The West, their fourth album, will correct that situation.

From the forthcoming LP – the first of the dozen tracks – Kentucky Killer.

Lord Willing – Loneliness Is The Hardest Drug – Audio

The US blues-rock creator Justin Long in the guise of Lord Willing will be releasing the LP Are You Happy? on the 31st of May.

From the forthcoming album – Loneliness Is The Hardest Drug, which was itself released as a stand alone single earlier this month, stakes a decent marker for the LP.

A just over three minutes track that is fused with R&B, Blues and thumping rock, which finds the listener stamping in time with the bulging drum kit that slices through the speakers. A well conceived piece of music which lifts even the dourest mood to a sense of well-being and rather than downing whisky to numb despondency the audience raises a glass in cheerful disposition.

The fact that Justin is an experienced musician, albeit that Lord Willing is a new project, is evidenced in the self-assured songwriting and delivery.

Word arrives of a follow-up single coming out on the 17th of March – Green Doesn’t Look Good On You which will provide a further signpost as to what to expect from Are You Happy? in May.

Harlea – You Don’t Get It – Single Review

The English blues-rock project Harlea released the single You Don’t Get It a few hours ago.

The crunching guitar rips its own denim as the gnarly chords rumble across the room, whilst a delightfully precocious bass echoes around the walls as though in an empty hall as drum skitters through half of each bar giving You Don’t Get It a surprisingly uptempo feel to the whisky saloon blues from which the drifting vocal gritty vocal filters in to focus.

Harlea is a project that is making an impact with the sultry, becoming, vocal writhing around dusty dirty-blues and I look forward to what else 2017 has in store.
