A band who seemed poised on the cusp of super-stardom before things fell apart in the late 1970’s – they sound invigorated by another turn at getting their music out there.
Bend is a superb debut, immediately warming & indicative of a band who genuinely love making music.
Consider the things he considers & simultaneously keep yourself entertained. Nobody makes music quite like Pete Murphy does.
This fusion of yesteryear and today works in a refreshingly honest and endearing manner. The song is incredibly addictive and an easy joy to have pop up within any modern playlist.
Billenholt’s voice has a fairly unique sound – it fits the tone of this alternative pop feel pretty flawlessly, but it also offers plenty in the way of personality, which lets you get a little closer to the artist as an individual.
Sweet Surrender offers a lot in the way of that big band, jazz-funk, almost Christmas joy style of musicality. A memorable, warm track – loaded with good vibes, soul, and a dash of rock & roll.
These songs that make up the collection are beautifully well produced & also hit in the way that any superb & memorable song should. There’s plenty more to appreciate on top of this as the project plays out.
Great vibes a-plenty from The Fell Swoop this rainy Sunday. Straight from the soulful swagger of San Francisco, the band offer classic funk & soul with an added flicker of pop-songwriting; fit to fill the boots of any of history’s funkiest live bands.
It’s not all that often I’m blown away by how uniquely unexpected an artist’s sound is. Perhaps it’s that Can’t Buy Love was the opener – a brilliant song, gorgeously atmospheric, openly sentimental, funky & quirky in a subtle but cool way.
I’ve learned to stop trying to be famous &instead d enjoy being an artist. My dream is to lose the day job & go on small-town tours, play in the evenings at the local VFW, then go off to the next town. I’d like to do that sooner rather than later.
There’s so much more to the band than the music, admittedly a confusing thing to say – I guess there’s something to connect with that runs deeper than strings & rhythm. Everyone & their neighbor should hear this album.
An EP that creates a wonderful groove & a string of easy going soundscapes for its audience. The underlying concepts intrigue & the passion with which they’re delivered really adds to this air of thought provoking mystery.
