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.

The last of the five tracks – Let Go – was revealed yesterday.

Perhaps the most expressive and layered track of the EP with a marked slowing down of pace in the opening segment and a song which is highlighted by shimmering echoing guitars and the depth of bass giving the composition a feeling of sadness – unsurprisingly – making it my pick of the release.

Frequency Illusion – EP – Young Earth is available on iTunes.*

Loyal Lobos – Dirt – Single Review

Loyal Lobos is the US based project of the Colombian melancholic-rock creator Andrea Silva.

Prior to going anywhere near the output of Loyal Lobos do ensure you have a handkerchief to hand to wipe away the tears which will spill from the eyes.

The most recent track to surface – Dirt – commences with spaced notes of guitar which is soon cloaked by a slow-stepping and loosely sprung snare drum that instantly provides a sad countenance to the track, prior to the accompaniment of the fragile, breaking, vocal before gradually building in to a wash of intensity that ebbs and flows through a composition which contemplates of the nature of destructive relationships that, by their very nature, predominately consist of short rising highs that are immediately followed by lengthy deep troughs of despair prior to finally and inevitably collapsing in to self-extirpation.
