Terrific album cover–and we really don’t get good album covers anymore, in these days of digital music. This is some good garage rock and roll in the tradition of Gaslight Anthem.
God, what an awful album title for a such a good record. Some of you may remember Dothacker as Josh Klinghoffer’s (guitarist for the Red Hot Chili Peppers) solo project, with members of Gnarls Barkley’s touring band.
It’s damn good, full of variety, and every song sounds fresh and new. But if you’re looking for RHCP funk, or even RHCP-lite, you’ll be disappointed. Instead, Dothacker’s album feels at times atmospheric, at times contemplative, and, always, beautiful.
Don’t miss this record–it’s extraordinary.
Like that heavy jam-band sound of Black Mountain, Dinosaur Jr., and all the other great Jagjaguwar record label? Then here’s a freEP that should be right up your alley. Three instrumentals that will make you want to do heroin while leaning against a brick wall.
Needless to say, I love it.
Like 1960s blues-based hard and fierce rock and roll? Then check out Radio Moscow’s fourth album, Magical Dirt. It’s great.
