“Right Man on Yr Side”

Well, well, well. It looks like I’ve found a new favorite song from The Wrong Shapes. This creative duo just cooked up a sophisticated, electro-swamp-blues number for your next heady hoedown. The cello and guitar intertwine while “Right Man on Yr Side” stomps along with intoxicating repetition. The vocals are cool. The solos are trippy. I don’t know how these sounds and styles work together, but they do. It’s hypnotizing. Dig it.

Devil On Horseback – Rule The Deep (2015)

Ladies and gentlemen, hold onto your riff hats. Devil On Horseback are coming for ’em. These guys made some kind of deal with the man down below a while ago and now they’re cashing in. Is it metal? I don’t know, but Priest and Jake E. Lee are certainly in the mix. Hell, the bridge from “Blowfly” sounds like Ride The Lightning-era Metallica. So, yeah, at least metal-ish. Eric Waxwood and Alejandro Necochea rip up their fretboards while Dave Riley keeps the low end in check. Then there are the drums. I’ve been a huge fan of Bruce Caporal for years, but I’ve never heard him play like this. I’m floored. This rules.
