WOLFMOTHER - Self Titled - 2005 - MODULAR RECORDS
One of Triple J’s (independent radio station here in OZ) nominated Albums of the Year, if they take it out will be up there with other notables Silverchair, Grinspoon and Jet.
Whilst arriving on the scene over a year ago, it is fantastic to see that the boys have waited until the album was faultless before releasing it. Rock power chords, falsettos and psychedelic sound fuck everything since the glory days of the genre hit our radios.
Starting with Colossal, the band rips into the jam funk with massive bass lines, which blow your mind and your speakers. Thundering drums, sublime bass licks and Andrew Stockdale’s vocal holler make this THE rock album of 2005.
The songs will not require any deep analysis or thought, they come at you straight up quicker then you can say Lyijykomppania. I have been lucky enough to see them live, and in honesty you lose nothing on this purchase.
If there was a downfall to the album or the band it would be that they are going to need a Page or Blackmore to really be up there with the all time greats, but time will tell. Maybe the short attention span of our generation will work in their favour.
I think their attitude sums up the album when they say, “Everything was directed toward capturing "the perfect feeling" rather than "faultless performance”
Couldn’t have said it better myself. This album is perfect.
Additional Note: These guys also seem to throw in some Soundgarden fuzz along with the retro-riffs. Killer stoner CD! --Nailer
