Andy Fairweather Low & The Lowriders - Zone-O-Tone

Andy Fairweather Low & The Lowriders - Zone-O-Tone - 2013

by Dean Pedley from themidlandsrocks.com

Andy Fairweather Low has become a renowned sideman over the past few decades, touring with the likes of Eric Clapton, Bill Wyman and Roger Waters and appearing as a backing vocalist on Who Are You. Back in the 60’s Andy led chart topping psychedelic Welsh rockers Amen Corner who were part of the Christmas ’67 package tour headlined by Hendrix that also included Syd Barrett’s Pink Floyd on the bill. With such a long and rich history Andy has stepped out of the shadows and invested more time into his solo career of late and Zone-O-Tone finds him debuting twelve new songs that have been inspired by his love of Stax and Atlantic Soul, Johnny Kidd & The Pirates, Lonnie Donegan and The Shadows amongst others. 

Backed by a top-notch three piece band there is something here that will appeal to all; from blues to gospel, country to rock and more than a little bit of soul, the overall vibe being very much rooted in the 50’s and 60’s. For the large part mellow and laid back the band does crank it up a notch on occasion, most notably with the up-tempo opener ‘Dance On’ and jaunty ‘Roll Ya Activator’. Andy has a distinctive croon and when combined with some dazzling guitar work it is easy to see why he has all too often found himself much in demand from some of rocks most distinguished names. The songs are Andy embarking on a personal journey that is unashamedly about nostalgia and those that have grown up with him throughout the decades will doubtless find much here that will inspire.

01. Dance On 
02. Deep River Blues 
03. Let Me Be Your Angel 
04. Roll Ya Activator 
05. Hard Way To Go 
06. Breakin’ Chains 
07. Love, Hope, Faith & Mercy 
08. La La Music 
09. Unclouded Day 
10. Mother Earth 
11. You’ll Never Beat The Devil

The Charlie Watts Riots - A Break in the Weather

The Charlie Watts Riots - A Break in the Weather - 2013

By Corvozine.com
Singer-guitarist-songwriter Seth Powell of the Charlie Watts Riots is a music engineer and producer who has worked with Graham Parker, the Figgs and other artists at his Soundcheck Republic Studios in East Greenbush, New York. But when it came time to mix his own band’s sophomore album, A Break in the Weather, Powell turned to Nashville producer Nick Raskulinecz – a force behind some of the biggest names in rock.

Raskulinecz – a three-time Grammy winner and producer of albums by Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Rush and many more – really liked what he heard of the demos for A Break in the Weather and signed on to polish the album’s tracks. From the stadium-worthy single “Bottom” – about coming to terms with life’s disappointments – to the spirited power-pop ballad “Luanne,” A Break in the Weather got its amped-up final form thanks to Raskulinecz’s skills as a veteran producer. 

“He made the album sound bigger than I could or would have made it,” says Powell. “He made it sound huge and polished without making it sound over-produced. The drums are big. The guitars are in your face. It’s just a big, professional sounding record.”

Working with Raskulinecz at Dark Horse Recording studio was a thrill for Powell, a big fan of Raskulinecz’ work with alt-rockers Superdrag. “Nick is a big fan of the music he’s working on,” says Powell. “He knows every drum hit, every lyric. That was impressive. He knows every note of every song. At the end, he wanted to know who was putting our album out. That was when he offered to put it on his label.” 

A Break in the Weather is one of the first releases from the Los Angeles-based MCDMAN music label, a boutique management company that represents top record producers, including Raskulinecz. The label is a collaboration between the management company and the record producers to help talented, unsigned artists reach a broader audience. Raskulinecz will also produce the follow-up to A Break in the Weather next year.

The Charlie Watts Riots - Long Story Short (re-post)

The Charlie Watts Riots - Long Story Short - 2010

By Tom McWatters from http://www.timesunion.com
If Last Cons boast a big past, Charlie Watts Riots are an actual supergroup, with a lineup boasting former members of Vodkasonics, Bloom, The Wait and Coal Palace Kings. Power-pop is served on "Long Story Short," and nothing else, thank gosh.

Guitarists Brendan Pendergast and Seth Powell know how to make four chords ring, and they do just that on killers like "Greater Good," "Lie to Me" and the epic chugging, stop/start of "Radio". Just try not singing along to the hook on that one; try to resist the Gerry Rafferty tug in Pendergast's voice.

But there's room for ballads, too, and although the emphasis is on power, we don't mean power ballads. "Page Turner" is poignant enough to make Paul McCartney jealous, and drummer Joe Putrock and bassist Mike Pauley keep it taut without overpowering it.

Powell's "Dress Up," which just might be the album's sleeper, enters over a chiming six-string figure before juggling a great mix of counterpoint vocals and chunky chords over and an eerie keyboard pedal tone.

Long story short, "Long Story Short" is the real thing, a testament to music of the past that proves - Livingston's cry aside - that the future looks just fine.

Brendan Pendergast - Guitar, Vocal
Seth Powell - Guitar, Vocal
Mike Pauley- Bass, Vocal
Joe Putrock - Drums

01. Greater Good           
02. The Narcissist

Gavin Guss - Mercury Mine

Gavin Guss - Mercury Mine - 2012

Seattle’s Gavin Guss is pop veteran who’s played with Nada Surf, Jon Auer, Harvey Danger, Fountains of Wayne and his own band The Tycoons. Important to note, Gavin was also lead singer/songwriter with the short lived group Tubetop who produced a pure pop masterpiece in Three Minute Hercules. Given these facts you know what to expect and he really delivers with his solo album Mercury Mine. Starting with the gentle acoustic hook in “X” it leads to a glorious McCartney-like chorus, that builds to sticky goodness in the multi-track harmonic ending with ascending basslines. The title track “Mecury Mine” has echoes of Harry Nilsson and Squeeze with it’s tinkling piano lead. There are too many gems here to count, so I’ll just indulge in my favorites, “Oasis” rings with the piano melody that wouldn’t sound out of place on a Michael Carpenter album. “Lifeboat” is another musical metaphor of the creative process at “…the bottom of The Puget Sound.” The album’s middle slows down a bit, but it has wonderful ballads that resonate, like the poignant “Marie” and the weary “Jetlagged.” Fans of Teenage Fanclub will love the guitar melody “Bud” and although the album doesn’t approach the highs it starts with, nothing here is filler, as most tunes fit in under three minutes and it’s sure to be repeated on your ipod playlist. Pure ear candy that is not to be missed.

The Yardbirds - Glimpses 1963-68 - 2011

Outubro para mim começou hoje, com a re-postagem de um dos post mais populares do blog. No original, a parte 4/4 morreu, inviabilizando o download. O incrível disso tudo é que mesmo tendo sido um dos mais acessados nos últimos 30 dias, somente uma pessoa, o Stefan (vindo lá de Bucareste), solicitou que fossem ressuscitados os links


The Yardbirds Glimpses 1963-1968, is a 5D box set featuring rarities and unheard material from the legendary band. Five years in the making, the collection documents the Yardbirds' transition from R&B stalwarts to pop provocateurs and ultimately on to more experimental material.

Comprised of recordings of the band live in concert or during broadcast performances, many of the tracks found here have never been heard before and most are previously unreleased. Among them are fully remastered BBC recordings as well as material spanning all three of the Yardbirds' legendary guitarists Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page.
