Voodoo Zombie - Reviresco 2018


  
 It's been almost 6 years now since Voodoo Zombie's last release,the single "Zombiewalk"(2012).While they are back and in a big way with their third album, "Reviresco". This time out they are on the new upstart label Batcave Records.Whats not new is that they worked again with Rene De La Muerte (The Brains). So you just know that  "Reviresco" is one damn rockin' affair .Pulling no punches we get an intro,a radio spot and 10 original tracks of stout and catchy psychobilly.Two of the tracks have previously been released , "Armor Psycho" and "Zombiewalk" are reworked here .This is psychobilly that at times has a hard rock edge but the band mixes it up.From an acoustic driven number to all out psycho rockers.Highlights include: "La Llamada De Cthulu", "Un Mejor Cadillac", "Amarte Es Peligroso" and "El Mesias"
   
  
 Voodoo Zombie have scored a winner with "Reviresco" It's well produced  and has a great vibe.It's easily their best effort yet and shows that they have a lot more to offer up. It's a powerful and fun ride that you want to get in on. Highly recommended!!

  Sandy and The Wild Wombats are on a mission and that's a good thing for us. This rockin' outfit just keeps getting better, delivering  top shelf rockabilly/rock n roll at every turn.The band's latest and 3rd offering; "Wanderlust" is proof of that.This puppy snarls and bites with 16 tracks including  a hidden bonus track that will definitely colour you impressed.The album throws up 14 stout and kool originals and  is bookend with 2 different versions of a cover of "I Love Rock And  Roll". It's also a great mix of straight up rockabilly to sharp rock n roll.They also add shots of blues and country into an already delicious dish. From  slow burners to all out rockers this disc has something for everyone.Highlights include: " Ride With The Rockers", "Wanderlust", "Girls Girls Girls", "Come On Let's Rock and "Tight Leatherette".
       

    One can't help but like Sandy & the Wild Wombats and "Wanderlust " only strengthens that.This is a strong ,well written and balanced  album that is strongly executed.You really should throw down some of your  hard earned cash down on this one.Highly recommended!!

The Reverb Syndicate - The Last Of The V8 Interceptors 2018



Over the years The Reverb Syndicate has laid down a whack of top shelf surf rock.Hell with 4 killer albums under their belts they are one of Canada's best surf bands.Their brand of surf  is  catchy and impressive.From traditional to, spy and spaghetti to sci fi  surf they have mixed it up and  stayed surprisingly fresh.Now there back as a 3 piece and have dropped their 5th album; "The Last Of The V8 Interceptors" .This time out we get 11 originals of surf drenched in reverb and twang.In the past the band's albums all have had themes and this time out I'm guessing it's about fast cars. It also has some of the band's hardest tracks to date.For the most part it's also straight up surfrock and damn good.Highlights include: "Motorik", "Sigue Sigue Stingray", "Clubfoot The Avenger" and the Mad Max  inspired "The Last Of The V8 Interceptors"
  The Reverb Syndicate  seem to get better with every release and " The Last Of The V8 Interceptors" is arguably their best yet and that's saying something. Once again  they deliver the goods but if you know anything about these guys ,you expect that.This is one damn sweet and satisfying surf album.Highly recommended!

Thee Creepfreaks - Tales From Thee Creepfreaks 2018



 You got to give Thee Creepfreaks credit, these psycho cats are persistent, despite some bad timing and membership changes. They released a stout,wild and rough 7 song demo back in 2015. But just as it starting getting some traction,bang life got in the way and not for the first time.The band had some more struggles but when the dust settled,they hit their stride and signed up with Greystone Records. Earlier this year(2018) they released the strong and rockin' debut album "Tales From Thee Creepfreaks". This puppy packs a pretty good punch and clocks in with 12 original tracks of psychobilly,punkabilly and a little surf. Six of the tracks here appeared on the demo but are redone.Working with producer and Greystone Records headman:Scott Milsom has Thee Creepfreaks sounding better than ever.This is one of those albums that has a really clean and kool flow .It also has a great vibe that hooks you in. Highlights include: "Amber Gambler", "Abandon All Hope", "Straight Jacket", "Go West" and the neat single "El Dorado".
     
     
     Thee Creepfreaks have hit pay dirt here with "Tales From Thee Creepfreaks". It's a damn strong debut album and  one rockin' psycho affair too boot.You should throw down a few of your hard earned bucks on this one .You'll be glad you did. Recommended!

The Black Moon Boys - Nuthouse 2018



  Every year there are a few releases that one gets excited about and one of those releases for me is The Black Moon Boys debut album. Like many folks ,these Montreal rockabilly cats hooked me in when they dropped their stellar  self-titled ep back in early 2016.That ep caught a lot of people off guard, got a whack of airplay,not only in Canada but also internationally  and still gets a fair share of airplay today.Their debut album; "Nuthouse" is now here and this puppy doesn't disappoint.Hell this is one blast of fun, refreshing hip shaking rockabilly.We get 10 original tracks and 1 cover.Two of the tracks are from their ep. From straight up rockabilly to all out rockers,a slow burner and a little 50's inspired rock n rock ,this is one sweet ride.Highlights include: "Sharkbait", "Time To Go", "Truth Or Dare" and "Nuthouse".
       
     Not only does "Nuthouse" live up to expectations, it surpasses them.It will color you impressed and leaves you wanting more.You know it's damn stout  when even the christmas song is freakin' kool.One of the years best by a band you should know. Highly recommended!!
