Monday and a new week, that means it's time to introduce "Record Of The Week"
The Swedish Psychedelic Blues Rockers BLUES PILLS are back with their second album "Lady in Gold". A record that was released in August 2016.
"Lady in Gold" consists of ten tracks including a cover of Tony Joe White's "Elements and Things" from the 1969 album "...Continued". "Lady gold is a character who symbolizes death. The band wanted a twist on the typical stereotype of death being the grim reaper. So instead they made her a lady in gold." Don Alsterberg (GRAVEYARD, DIVISION OF LAURA LEE and JERRY WILLIAMS) once again took the production role of the album. It also marks the studio debut of drummer André Kvarnström. The cover art are made by dutch artist Marijke Koger-Dunham.
"Lady in Gold" is a proper sophomore full-length. A really bold and infectious record, the songs are well handcrafted, a great swing with a grooviness is freaking hard to sit still during a spin. The songs have a very high catchiness witch would appeal to the broader mass of fans. Elin Larsson voice very Soulful and Bluesy, think Aretha Franklin with an attack of Janis Joplin. The music continues where they last ended, a sweet confetti Blues-rock with a strong psychedelic vibe and excellent songs, some tunes have a little more popish approach than they use to have, nothing bad with that. This is a very strong album that probably will gain even bigger landmark than the previous album. The future looks really bright.
Sum: Don't miss "Lady in Gold", it's an psychedelic soul fueled blues-rock trip that will spin more than one time!
In 2016, BLUES PILLS will tour with KADAVAR, play festivals in the summer in North America and Europe followed by a UK tour in November.
