(PCM) Georgia rockers Lullwater are gearing up for the release of their self-titled debut album on September 17th and I was fortunate enough to be able to give this album an early listen and let me say this….it rocks!
The album was recorded at the famed London Bridge Studios in Seattle which no doubt had an effect on the completed album. Sometimes the setting for a record can have a profound impact on the completed project and I certainly feel that this is the case with Lullwater. The recording was done completely on tape, something that is not done too often these days, and it provides the listener with an album that showcases the raw and natural feel of the music and the band as a whole. I, for one, love that perfectly imperfect sound that comes from taped recordings where everything does not seem so polished and lacking in soul.
Lullwater is certainly going to be a band to keep on your radar throughout 2013! They bring to the table the perfect blend of southern blues and solid rock n’ roll that is sure to please even the most finicky listener. The opening track “Oddline” provides the listener with a heavy rocker right out the gate and sets the pace nicely for the rest of the album to follow. My personal favorite is “Albatross” a raw and gritty rock song which I think will go over beautifully when played in the live setting. Songs such as “Curiosity” and “Walk On By” stand-out to me as well and the album overall is definitely worth checking out!
Speaking of live dates, be sure to stay tuned as Lullwater does plan to hit the road in support of the new release!
