New Year Ninety 2018 – 60 to 51

Again the The New Year Ninety Chart as selected by the readers’ of the site contains musicians from every continent, barring one, Antarctica, from where no band has ever featured, though something I still aim to rectify at some point in time – from  60 to 51.

Seventeen Sisters – Don’t Mess This Up – Audio

The US rock & soul sextet Seventeen Sisters are set to release the LP Simplex Vita on the 27th.

Seventeen Sisters

An engaging ten track album grinds its way through the speakers in gritty Southern blues rooted compositions, to which they infuse elements of classic rock and intriguingly soul – delivering a soundscape that the listener feels obliged to be drawing from a glass of whiskey whilst listening.




Rather than filling the room with excess, as one may instinctively anticipate from so many players, Seventeen Sisters strip away the extraneous leaving a rawness and honesty to the sound to which the audience feels they too are an intrinsic part of the music.

My sympathy extends to the Manager of Seventeen Sisters as they are all siblings – and you know how often those relationships can suddenly explode in to a battle of wits and full credit to the six of them too – Sarah, Gracie, Angel, Faith, Hannah and Cecil – for being able to allow their sisters and brother to shine through each of the tracks.

My pick of the release is the sixth – Don’t Mess This Up.
