Black Water County – Roll The Woodpile Down – Video

I first saw the Black Water County rendition of Roll The Woodpile Down a week or so back.

The first version of the video was without Shan, who was recovering from glandular fever. After she was able to return to the fold, the band did a retake and as always Black Water County make the day seem sunnier…

The Riots - mod rock from Russia

The Riots

Referencing the UK ‘late ’70s The Riots have updated the mod derivative new wave to another angle as they reflect on an overbearing bureaucracy intent on dictating every moment of life. Whilst drawing considerable influence from The Jam and regular readers well know my disdain for that trio, they nonetheless pique more than a passing interest.

This is another agit outfit from Russia who are able to escape the full wrath of the Russian Bear and I am minded to posit that if you sing in English, in Russia, red-pens don’t quite know what to do with it. The visceral lyrics are explicitly targeted and fire finely honed darts of invective as The Riots explore the space in which they live.

Sonically the delightful rumblings of the sub-woofers bounce off the walls as the music bounds around the room like a feral cat seeking an escape route and the listener can’t help but to flail their body in vague syncopation.

The Volks - alt rock from the USA

The Volks

Bringing sounds from across the Atlantic into Alabama makes for an interesting sound that The Volks produce. I can’t say I didn’t have a sense of trepidation before hitting the music link of a band called The Volks from the White Supremacist heartland of Southern USA, but I was immediately put at ease. The quintet offer music with a broad international appeal as they break out the conundrum of the environs with a welcoming sound.

To try and more closely define the out-put – psychedelic revivalist Mod would serve as a differentiator and on their debut eponymous LP rebounds of analogue 8 track recordings, giving the material an instant authenticity and energy. The American twang adds a piquant of interest to me as a Brit and the coalescence of influences makes for an out-put I would like to keep hearing.

Never seeking to get ahead of themselves, The Volks, have given themselves time to develop songs which flow easily and settle with the audience instantaneously and the time they have afforded for their development has been well spent in defining a smartly pressed stack of songs.
