Blues Art Journal

This Swedish four-piece impressed me a couple of years ago with their material on the CeePeeVee label, and this follow-up finds them working in a bluesy, rootsy groove (try the raw, Elmore James styled closer , with several detours into rocking rompers soulful southern sounds, and even a little smooth, organ-led soul-jazz. Leader Emil Arvidsson has a fine voice and is equally adept on guitar, whilst keyboards man Johan Bendrik supports him beautifully and bassist Mats Hammarlof and drummer Tom Steffensen lay down appropriate rhythms.

All the songs are originals (good ones too) and the several instrumentals are varied and vastly entertaining – and that description really covers the whole album from this top-notch band.
