This Swedish five-piece, under the leadership of the husband and wife team of Mats and Linda Brandemark (with the latter taking – just - the majority of the lead vocals), offer an excellent selection of blues - try ‘Everybody’s Been A Fool’ or for a more modern take, ‘Hole In My Soul ‘ – Dire Straits styled rock as on the opening ‘Love Can Seriously Damage Your Heart’, country with the likes of ‘Window To The Sky’ and lots of Americana. In truth, you’d be hard pressed to identify them as not American. Their attention to detail means that they have enlisted the help of various guest musicians, including two pedal steel guitarists and the excellent California blues man Derrick “Big” Walker on harmonica. All eleven songs are catchy and by turns melancholic, thoughtful or joyously rocking; the set itself is definitely recommended.
