Be Careful With These Loaded Pistolrays

About Pistolrays Zagrebačka četvorka Pistolrays proizvode zaprljani garažni zvuk isprepleten melodijama inspiriranim prvim i drugim valom surf rock glazbe iz 60-tih godina, a začinjavaju ga grmljavinom reverb unit. Od osnutka svirali su po svim važnijim zagrebačkim klubovima sa bendovima poput Threesome, Dykemann Family i Latex Willer, a njihov nedavno snimljen debitantski EP Moon Riot proglašen je albumom tjedna na stranici potlista.com

Since inception played at all the major clubs in Zagreb with bands like Threesome, Dykemann Family and Latex Willer, and recently recorded their debut EP Age Riot declared the album the week on page potlista.com

I like it all. Each of the tracks hit some of my favorite sounds and grooves. Made my reverb happy bone go all tingly. Words hardly fit for these guys. Definitely worth the time to grab this disc.

Don't Fuck With Joe

This tasty gem come to us from the folks down south....way south - Brisbane Australia. The group's called The Blackwater Fever and this tune is from their new album, The Depths due to drop for all this coming week.

Here's what they say about that:

When you have critical acclaim, two successful albums, played festivals like Big Day Out, Bluesfest and Peats Ridge and opened for the likes of The Black Keys, Tame Impala, Birds of Tokyo, Jon Spencer and Violent Soho, how do you set yourself the next challenge?

 For The Blackwater Fever, the answer is that you take the production reins of your third album The Depths, spending almost a year evolving your sound and songwriting in ways only time and commitment will allow you to explore. Already known for their dark and brooding, yet hard-hitting sound, The Depths delivers on the promise of the band's previous releases, melting an even more diverse genre pool into their trademark garage blues sound.

 "The Depths is our best release yet and the first we have made entirely under our own steam. It was a huge learning curve with much trial and error but in the end I think the result has vividly realised our ideas and vision. This is how we will make albums from now on."
 - Shane Hicks (Vocals/Guitar)

 The 14 tracks journey through blues, soul, trip-hop, story telling, instrumental and rock n' rock, all forged together with their unique, dark, atmospheric sound. The album also marks the duo becoming a three piece, bringing bass and organ into the fold.

The Blackwater Fever have considerable radio airplay to their name with Triple J, Triple R, PBS and internationally in the USA and Europe. Their music has featured on the HBO and ABC television networks and been the soundtrack for various ad campaigns and Australian feature films, The Tunnel and The Crossing.

The Depths is instore and online through MGM Distribution on March 22, 2013.

I think you'll dig it the most.

This Man Wil NOT Rest in Peace

Ten Years After
Essential Ten Years After

After hearing this morning of the passing of Alvin Lee, lead singer and guitarist of Ten Years After I had to pull this one out. For those not familiar (shame on you) this is a very fine example of the kind of driving rock n roll this group put together. I saw them perform locally about 10-12 years ago and it was a mind and ear blowing experience. Sitting right in front of a HUGE stack of speakers I was one happy camper as my ears rang for days.

Like I said, this man will not rest in peace, he will be rockin' the nations of the world with his hard driving sound.

We will miss him greatly.
