Here's another of those 10"s on Nuclear Blast of chunky old-fashioned rawk! This time it's Blues Pills knocking out four live tracks at the Rockpalast. Their formula is simple - heavy, fast paced blues rock action with plenty of widdly Jimmy Page guitar heroics and a big-lunged lady hollerin' all over everything with her powerful voice. It's really well recorded, sounds almost like a studio recording, and everyone is playing tight and fast and hard.
While it isn't entirely my cup of tea it's the kind of rock which wouldn't sound out of place on Rise Above at the moment, with the dearth of new hard rockers they've been unearthing who sound like they want to party like it's 1975. They tone it down on 'Little Sun'...except the singer, who is still bellowing the song out like she hasn't noticed everyone else has eased off, it's pretty grating although there is a bit of a payoff at the end where they all rock out and the guitarist gets on with some more of his soloing.
I'm definitely enjoying this the most when they're getting on with straightforward olde-timey rock business. The band is tight and they're playing '70s riffs and big widdly solos, you'll like it or you won't.
