Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 29, 2015 by TheManicBlogger

thequietthings2Toronto pop-rocksters, The Quiet Things released ‘The Fall‘ in March 2015. An amazing album, filled with incredible power pop songs from one of my new favorite bands. The tracks contain wonderful melodies, great changes, and dynamite arrangements. The vocals and harmonies rock, and I was impressed with the acoustic/electric mix throughout. Highlights include ‘Charmer“, with great changes, way cool guitar effects, and sweet harmonies; the energy of ‘Kiss On The Mouth‘; ‘One‘, with its brilliant acoustic-electric blend; and my favorite track, ‘The Fall ll‘, offers wonderful tempo changes, dynamite vocals, and a guitar solo, that will make you get your lighters out! And don’t forget to check out the riff on the extended version of ‘Secrets‘.

the quiet things1I am liking this album. The vocals are wonderful, and the songs are exceptional. Incredibly original music, with the ability to create mood. The songs are wonderfully original, unique, and way cool. From beginning to end, it will have you tapping your feet, and trying to sing along. It gets inside you, and you just can’t get it out! Not a bad thing though, since The Fall is insanely good!  Definitely a must have album, and certainly in contention for the I Can’t Believe My Earz Indie Album of The Year for 2015. Check out and like The Quiet Things on facebook,  and listen to and order 3 or 4 copies of The Fall.  http://thequietthingsmusic.bandcamp.com/album/the-fall Give a few to your friends.

jeffery brosOttawa, Ontario based The Jeffery Brothers Band are set to release their album “Let’s Rock Let’s Roll” on August 31. Filled with driving rhythm tracks, exciting guitar, and powerful vocals, the album is a wonderful journey into hard core power rock. The songs are well written, with great changes, and infectious and addictive hooks from beginning to end. On more than one occasion I found myself getting out my jeffery bros2air guitar, to play along with the way cool riffs and electrifying solos. These guys know rock! Carrying the torch lit by the likes of AC/DC, The Jeffery Brothers Band have the formula for in your face, raucous rock and roll. Favorite tracks: ‘Choked‘, ‘Rock Star‘, ‘Broken Hearts‘, and the brilliant acoustic bonus track version of ‘Casting Out My Line‘. A must have album!!

BOMBARGO-Back On Main

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 3, 2015 by TheManicBlogger

bombargo1Bombargo,  an incredibly talented band from Saskatoon, Canada,  recently released a 5 track EP entitled Back On Main. Filled with wonderful melodies,great riffs, and layers of rock, pop, blues, soul and funk influences, this album has me wondering why I haven’t heard of these guys before! . The opening track, ‘I Need Help‘, is a beautiful ballad, with a blues-pop vibe, and a way cool vocal track. ‘Make It Mine‘ offers a dynamite fuzz sound, while ‘Let It Grow‘ delivers a soulful blues vibe. The blues-rock-funk feel of ‘That Sound‘ reminds me of The Black Crowes, and the changes are outstanding. My favorite track, ‘The Wave‘ gives up a wonderful melody, with great changes, an unforgettable chorus and hook, and some incredibly sweet, cool guitar.

 

 

bombargo3Bombargo have nailed it. A wonderful blend of rock, blues, and soul, captured in incredibly well written songs, that deliver a devastatingly full sound. The ballads are dramatic as hell, and the vocals, which drive the album, just kill. I have listened to this several times, and can’t see myself stopping. I am addicted. I am a fan. You need to check this out: http://bombargo.bandcamp.com/album/back-on-main, and please support the cause-all proceeds will be given to the Saskatchewan Fire Relief. Pretty cool. Definitely on the list for consideration as the 2015, I Can’t Believe My Earz Indie Album Of The Year.
