DeWolff - "Orchards/Lupine"
(REMusic Records 2011, 28024)
From Aural Innovations #42 (May 2011)
This young Dutch band is back with their 3rd record. I reviewed the last one and quite liked it a lot. I was really surprised at how different this one was yet still damn cool. The band have taken their Cream influence and mixed in some King Crimson like elements (the way they use synthesizers/Mellotron, not composition wise). The singer sometimes reminds me of the guy from Wolfmother and you could say they have a lot in common with a guitar player who is the singer; the bass player plays a lot of keyboards and drums. Musically, they are more rooted in the 70’s though and this album has a lot more keyboards and less guitar than the latest Wolfmother material. One of the last tracks is a very cool take on classic Allman Brothers. Fans of Hypnos 69, Motorpsycho, Cream, Wolfmother…. Check this excellent band out. This album really grows on you, so give it more than a few spins. Excellent stuff…
