New week, new month and that means it's time to present this week's "Record of the Week"
A year after the awesome self titled debut with our neighbours (Norway) SPIDERGAWD, they are back with are brand new album "Spidergawd II", this weeks "Record Of The Week".
The Trondheim-based SPIDERGAWDs music is intressting mix of 70's classic boogie rock, with progressive hooks and jazzy licks, it's a pretty forward and catchy, no fuss or other strange things. The influences are of course MOTORPSYCHO, as part of the band plays there. THE HELLACOPTERS are another one. It's Heavy, Bluesy, Jazzy and delightfully messy that you can only smile when you hear this. Take the first tune "...Is All She Says" with the slow guitar blues intro until it rise to a hard rocking beast. Or todays tune "Tourniquet", a happy, speedy and snotty garage rocker. Or the instrumental psychedelic "Careulean Caribou" with Jazzy and Dizzy saxophone, a real beauty in my ears.
The album was recorded at SoerGarden Studios and the cover Illustration is made by Emile Morel.
