The Corsets released “Are You Lonely, Are You Scared” in July 2014. The album contains 9 tracks of alternative blues-rock that had me wondering why I hadn’t heard of this Toronto band earlier.

corsets2Hit The Ground” opens the album with a great blues riff, and wonderfully haunting vocals. The changes and the effects are way cool. The drums and bass line of “Changing With The Weather“, carry the song. The changes rock, and the bridge is dynamite. I think I heard an organ in there, as well! The funk feel of “You Only Wish”  adds texture to the wonderful melody, and great vocal track. The blues come to town in “I Don’t Need You“,  with its sweet guitar riff and exceptionally cool changes in tempo, that occur effortlessly.  The short, yet sweet “Lady“, offers amazing corsets1drumming, and wonderful changes in tempo and melody line, while “Do What Moves You” offers a cool reggae influence with rock and blues highlights. Very interesting track. “Can I Get A Piece Of You?” with its sweet blues-rock guitar, nice changes and transitions, and great melody, has a cool Cream feel to it. Two tracks are standouts. “My Show“, has a great melody, exceptional drums and bass line, and wonderful changes, all within a aura of melancholia. It ends the album with a single strum of  acoustic guitar. Very fitting, Very Cool. My favorite track, “Take It Easy, Baby“, delivers a great rhythm section, and a way cool riff. The melody is wonderful, and I enjoy the use of distortion here. A dynamite track that just plain rocks.

 

 

 

“Are You Lonely, Are You Scared” is a wonderful adventure. The Corsets manage to harness their individual talents into a harmonic whole that is indeed the sum of its parts. Each is easily identifiable, yet needs the other parts to be heard. The energy level is wonderfully exciting, and the songs well, incredibly creative. Add this to your collection. It is that good.  Check it out and get your copy here: http://the-corsets.bandcamp.com/album/are-you-lonely-are-you-scared
