Hot Lunch – Hot Lunch (2013)

Posted by on March 1, 2013 with No Commentsas

HOTSelf-proclaimed punk-n-rollers, the four-piece stampede through nine tracks of unadulterated retro-rock. Eric Shea is a throwback to the 70s era rock frontmen, all swagger, psych lyricism and throat-shedding howls. Aaron Nudelman takes these songs into the stratosphere with his thick-as-fuck guitar lines, whilst Tim Green’s production truly transplants these tracks some forty years in the past. As I stated with Games’ new record, looking back at past influences only works if its authentic and/or original, and Hot Lunch clearly embrace the heathen rhythms of the rock gods of yesteryear.

Dead Man Winter – Bright Lights (2011)

Posted by on March 1, 2013 with No Commentsas

dFor singer/songwriter/guitarist Dave Simonett of the progressive bluegrass band Trampled by Turtles, Dead Man Winter has been described as his rock & roll side project (on the official TbT website), but both parts of that description may be dubious. First, the music on Dead Man Winter’s debut album Bright Lights isn’t mostly rock & roll. True, “Get Low,” “Cry for Help,” and “Industrial Daybreak” all answer to that description, with their rock rhythms and electric guitar riffs. But much of the album is folk-rock at best, or even country-pop. Still, it can be said that the sensibility Simonett exhibits in his sly songwriting and strained tenor singing is rock-oriented, and when he does rev things up, as on “Get Low,” he suggests Neil Young with Crazy Horse. The rest of the time, he suggests Young in one of his more folkie or country moods. Whatever the style, however, the music and the band playing it are distinctive enough that the “side project” tag seems inappropriate. TbT is just coming into its own with chart albums like Duluth and Palomino. But Bright Lights demonstrates that Simonett needs to split his time between them rather than relegating Dead Man Winter to secondary status.
