FLW Playlist

 

Less One Knows

Benjamin Finger (Dead Definition)

A deviation from previous works, and most welcome as Less One Knows is quite possibly the Norwegian’s best album to date.

 

Southern Bred: Texas R&B Rockers Vol.8

Various Artists (Koko Mojo)

Rather like a good novel that you do not want to end, the same feeling applies to the series ‘Southern Bred: Texas R&B Rockers’.

 

Glass Island

Richard Luke (Moderna Records)

‘Glass Island’ is an album to break the strongest of hearts yet also provide reasons for optimism that all is not lost.

 

Up and Down

Ramblin Bandits (Rhythm Bomb)

The Ramblin Bandits show no signs of fatigue during ‘Up and Down’ because it’s simply engaging from start to finish.

 

Crashland

Doc & the Headshrinkers (HSM)

Rock and roll is alive and well in West Wales via Doc & the Headshrinkers’ Crashland.

 

Thunder & Lightning

Fireball Steven (Rhythm Bomb)

Great comeback album that would have benefited even further from more of his own compositions.

 

Boss Black Rockers: Mardi Gras Rock Vol.6

Various Artists (Koko Mojo)

Highlighting much needed recognition of the “original” rock ‘n’ rollers, ‘Boss Black Rockers Vol.6’ has something for all true devotees of rock and roll music.

 

Open Wound (Single)

Svalbard (Holy Roar Records)

There’s beauty in sound with Open Wound, despite the sensitive subject matter of the lyrics. New single before new LP.

 

Charon (Single)

Jordan Rome (Working Brilliantly)

Alternative rock and grunge-lite ditty but one spiked with an undercurrent of country & western, Charon reveals but one side of Jordan Rome’s music.

 

Hotel Breakfast

Hot Rod Double (TB Hurricane Records)

Showing no signs of fatigue, Hot Rod Double’s third LP continues to cling to the FLW Playlist with its compelling mix of rockabilly and various strands of country music.
