The US blues-rock quintet Oddnote released their début eponymous LP on the 13th.
Twisted blues guitar gnaws at the skirting-boards as the dirty chords roll through the room while a rumbling rhythm guitar ruffles the ears with a rattling bass bending the window frames and percussion driving the songs forward like a snarling school-mistress rounding up unruly children – overlaying the music is powerful growling vocal – rounding out a fourteen track album (available on bandcamp) that does require the speakers to be turned to full volume and then kicked to clear out any dust to fully enjoy.
Having said all that the LP is very much one of thirds, with the middle section of songs being more mellow, rhythm guitar led, in tone, though that does need to be taken in context, resultingly evidencing a band, which although having only formed last year are already, gelling in to a formidable unit.
My pick of the release being one of the more soft brush tracks – the eleventh – Reckless Movement.
