Alive In Theory – Abandon (Ultraviolet Records)

This debut album from the Manchester duo Alive In Theory is a potent, reflective collection of self-penned tracks. From the eponymous opening track with touches of Kate Bush to the understated but room filling The Other Side, this downbeat album is packed with quality. Marianne…

DAVID M'ORE - Passion, Soul & Fire (Own label)

Born in Argentina but based in California since 1990 - initially in Los Angeles where he played with some of the local blues musicians but nowadays he calls San Francisco home - David M'ore is an unabashed blues-rocker, with a gruff voice in the vein of Howlin' Wolf or Captain Beefheart (though a little less flexible, if truth be told - an occasional vocal duet might go down well), and a guitar style that draws in about equal amounts from Johnny Winter, Jimi…

KATHY & THE KILOWATTS – Let’s Do This Thing (Lectro Fine 022017)

Let'sDoThisThing!_CoverArt

This is a very fine, almost straight blues set from singer Kathy Murray, aided and abetted by some wonderful guitar playing by her husband Bill “Monster” Jones, a top-notch rhythm section and the occasional use of horns. As for those superlatives – did I mention that these guys are veterans of the Austin, Texas, blues scene? The band’s strapline is “real deal Texas roots and blues”. Initially though, I was rather less keen. On first listening, I got to…

HURRICANE RUTH – Ain’t Ready For The Grave (Own label)

 

Track Two, ‘Hard Rockin’ Woman’ is an aptly titled powerhouse performance, a statement of intent with Illinois-born Ruth approaching the power of Tina Turner in her prime and maybe a tinge or two of Janis Joplin. Mind you, the opening ‘Barrelhouse Joe’s’ brought Koko Taylor to mind, so yes, we can be pretty sure that Ruth can roar out the blues with the best of them. Things become a little quieter for ‘Far From The Cradle’, with electric slide guitar the main…

PATTY REESE – Let In The Sun (Azalea City ACCD 1602)

Let In The Sun

 

Blues, roots-rock and Americana is what singer Patty offers on her fourth album, opening with the tough blues of ‘Is It Too Late For Me?”, with Patty’s passionate vocal performance driven along by Jonathan Sloane’s wicked electric slide guitar playing and a gritty band. ‘Your Love’ continues in the straight blues vein, a fine Texas shuffle with Patty’s voice in a more sensual mood, before veering off into the hard funk of ‘Soul Satisfier’ and the…
