LATEST MUSIC REVIEWS/INTERVIEWS

WHITE RAVEN DOWN - Conspiracy (EP)

Remember the name, WHITE RAVEN DOWN. You heard it here first. The most addictive debut EP I've heard in a long while and a band where I instantly love every note and chord.

There is some awesome new talent out there right now and these guys have the potential to help lead the way...

12 HOUR AVENUE - The D-Road (EP)

12 Hour Avenue give us their debut EP ‘The D-Road’, delivering 6 tracks of rock that are filled with sliding riffs, bluesy undertones, heavy drums and vocals that sound like they’ve been soaked in whiskey and sandalwood for the past 25 years. Get ready to add some swagger to your day...

 

...there is a huge amount of promise for the future for 12 Hour Avenue...

WHEEL - The Divide (EP)

...intelligent and intriguing, neither simplistic nor overly oblique. Each song invites you in and then slowly reveals its textures and layers to you...

What you get is some of the classiest rock songs you’ll have heard in a long time, and if they can keep this level of consistency up over a full-length album then we could have a future classic on our hands...

MOUTH IN THE SOUTH - Aftershock (EP)

There hasn’t been such crotch-tightening, eye-watering, dog-baiting high notes hit with this sort of vigour since The Darkness burst on to the scene 15 years ago...

 

Their sound is big and bold and unashamedly old school. Hints of AC/DC poke through the Halford-esque histrionics and wailing solos which give the band a more menacing undercurrent than other bands of their ilk...

SONIA LEIGH AND FRIENDS - Live In London: Studio 3 Sessions (ALBUM)

 

 

When you listen to Leigh’s songs, you can really hear the cross-over of genres that have influenced her songwriting. Musically hard to define, she’s somewhat of a chameleon that doesn’t fit into your typical box, not that there is anything at all wrong with that!...

BLACK COFFEE - Take One (Album)

The power trio take their inspiration mainly from ‘60s and ‘70s melodic rock, creating vintage-infused fresh new sounds. Take One is their debut album and is out now...

'Take One' is brimming with influences from Black Sabbath, AC/DC, and Led Zeppelin yet having the effect of making classic rock feel fresh and exciting again. There is a current surge of interest in this genre of rock and I hope Black Coffee can make themselves heard as it's well worth listening to...

THE HOWLING TIDES - S/T (EP)

Previously known as Anonymous, they have made the difficult decision to rebrand, change their name, logo, social media profiles and start again. They built up Anonymous over the course of a number of years, first as a cover band and then they started writing their own material...

The guitar tones the lads have gone for on this EP really suit the tunes they have written. They have a great vintage sound to them...

BIG BOY BLOATER & THE LIMITS - Pills (ALBUM)

The best blues music always comes from personal experiences, be that emotional heartbreak, rejection, pain, or physical breakdown. So it’s no surprise that Big Boy Bloater went on a song writing spree after a bout of depression...

 

Joining the same label as modern blues legends Joe Bonamassa, Walter Trout, Robert Cray, and Beth Hart, just shows the faith the label have in him, and they aren’t alone!...

RUM RUNNERS - Embers (EP)

Based in Edinburgh, and with a common love of classic rock, the band recently had a successful weekend of shows supporting Anchor Lane to showcase their debut EP ‘Embers’.

 

Two years in the making, this is an easy listening, well written four track rock and roll power charger...
