OUR RATING 86/100
Laid Back Townies is a smart band from Northern Ostrobothnia, Finland.
The band was founded in 2013 and they released their debut album 'Watch Your Step' in 2015.
Their second album named 'II' is released on December 14th 2018 by Inverse Records.
DROP DEAD WOMAN is the first shot, a classic hard rock song son of LED ZEPPELIN, that reminds somethin' from first two amazing album of THE ANSWER.
WHO KNOWS goes on with is flowing sound, closer to seventies bluesy hard rock, with bass guitar that lead the attack; the solo is stunning and reminds us the magician of FREE and PAUL KOSSOFF.
SIN CITY is a wider track, while GHOST is more intimate and thoughtful, surely fancy and with great solutions, except for a break more acid rock.
More acid rock vibes also in TRUE GRIT, with vocals really compelling.
THE FALL OF GIANTS is divided in two parts, the first a great instrumental between hard rock and acid blues, with a sharp riff, the second more classic and wider, surely more progressive.
SALT RAIN OF SADNESS ends in the right mood a fancy album.
The album is more progressive compared to previous and most of the instrumental parts was recorded live only in four days.
A raw free jamming ensemble which shows the dynamic playing of the trio and stunning vocals!
