Some music is made for dancing in wild abandon and Shoot You Down you down is a case in point. Rockabilly drum kit spirals in to the room to the accompaniment of dirty blues guitar with a bass that adds even more pace, rounded out by a voice through loud-hailer and just as you thought is couldn’t get any better a harmonica launches itself in to earshot raising a broad grin.
Clear some room – hit play and enjoy life with Donkey Island Penitentiary.
The English stoner trio Donna & The Cadillacs released their début single a few hours ago.
Donna & The Cadillacs – Shoot You Down – test press CD
There will be some familiarity for those who are of longer linger with the material featured which is Mastered through (((dmb))) studios as the flat enunciations of notes thud to the floor on impact.
The collapsing shells of sounds are what makes the material of intrigue as Shoot You Down targets around the room like a game-shooter firing lead pellets. Spirographs of scintillating psychedelia are foreshortened in festoons of weighty anchoring bass as fuzzy acidic guitar meanders across the ears in muffled tones whilst meaty percussion forestalls extensive tribulation.
The listener is invited to take a trip on LSD whilst laced with Ketamine and I look forward to hearing more of the compositions of Donna & The Cadillacs, who mind me of another current English band – Allusondrugs.
