FLW Playlist

Before Before
 

Before Before

Infinity Broke (Come To The Darkside Luke)

This could so easily have sounded like a compilation of odds and ends but actually surpasses its predecessor. The more direct approach is definitely key here as Infinity Broke create an exceptional record.

The Basement Sessions EP
 

The Basement Sessions EP

Monster Jaw (Cobra Kitten Records/Code 7)

The sound of a band getting too close to their art considering the overall sense of claustrophobia attached to this latest EP, but there are no complaints from this corner as it makes for compelling listening.

Reaching For The Light
 

Reaching For The Light

King King (Manhaton Records)

King King show their tender side to a much greater extent during third album, ‘Reaching For The Light’.

KILLSWITCH!
 

KILLSWITCH

The Rip 'Em Ups (Rhythm Bomb)

Failed to see this coming! The Rip ‘Em Ups blaze a trail of wild rock ‘n’ roll but remember to apply the brakes to show greater variation in their overall sound.

Guitar Player
 

She Knows How (from album Guitar Player)

Nico Duportal and his Rhythm Dudes (Rhythm Bomb)

Should be renamed ‘He Knows How’ as this utterly charming rhythm and blues number will have you swinging with glee, it’s that good!

Rockin' With Wanda Jackson
 

Rockin’ With Wanda Jackson

Wanda Jackson (El Toro)

A great compilation covering Wanda Jackson’s years at Capitol Records on both sides of the street of Hollywood and Nashville.

Hell Of A Ride
 

A Kiss Like This (from album Hell Of A Ride)

John Lindberg Trio (Enviken)

This is one of the reasons why JLT has hurdled the barrier marked ‘rockabilly’ and taken their sound to a broader audience.

The Space Sessions
 

The Space Sessions

The Satellites (El Toro)

Despite this being a covers heavy affair, The Satellites bring something else to this set, and reveal impeccable taste in the process.

Hell Yeah
 

Hell Yeah

The Boners (Rhythm Bomb)

Do not dismiss a band by its cover! The Boners show how it’s done with an accomplished set of original songs.

Carl Bradychok
 

Malaga (from album Carl Bradychok)

Carl Bradychok (Bradychok Music)

A strong debut album, but it was the stylish instrumental ‘Malaga’ that appealed the most.
