Product Description

It's been a long, hard and winding road for mankind, but in December 2011 the moment we've all - yet unknowingly and yet unaware of our coming salvation - been waiting for finally saw the light of day. Elin Larsson, Cory Berry and Zack Anderson, all just in their early Twenties, formed a group which should quickly become one of the most acclaimed and interesting bands iaround. Behold the birth of a new musical experience, an experience we thought was long gone, lost in time and space. Behold the birth of BLUES PILLS. The young American-Swedish-French quartet create a very unique, intense and extraordinary rock atmosphere while at the same time having a major mainstream appeal that takes you right back to the time of BLUES PILLS' ancestors Aretha Franklin, The Original Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Cream. Driving bass lines, grooving drums and guitar solos from another planet by the only 17 year old Dorian Sorriaux, harmonized and tied together with such easiness, such delight, by Elin's incredible voice, sometimes singing in her mother tongue Swedish.

With the idea to take soul music, combined with blues and rock'n'roll and turn it into a new force of unimaginable energy, intensity and freshness, their blonde archangel & soul-saviour Elin Larsson will guide you gently into a new world, the band's empire of soulful rock; her beautiful voice seems to be taking you beyond the stars to an infinite universe on a journey that appears endless in time, yet profound and revealing. Elin's powerful lyrics are full of emotions, her jazzy-soulful voice never falls into the trap of an aestheticization of kitsch, but unfolds an outstanding beauty itself with a refreshing new take on the timeless and unquestionably noble art of rocknroll, touching your soul. All this is realised on the band's stunning 10-track debut produced by Don Alsterberg (GRAVEYARD), wrapped in the incredible '60's style artwork of Marijke Koger-Dunham.

I stumbled on this band just by looking around for something new, you need to dig to find the nuggets and this is one of them that I personally am grateful to find. The sound is great, Tunes are in your face and have to be heard, think of Black Sabbath and a blend of Shocking Blue sprinkled with Janis Joplin & Wolfmother and you kind of get the picture. When i first heard this band they just blew me away simple as that and just had to buy the album and was not disappointed. I really hope they go on to make more great records and sounds.

Here we have yet more retro rock of the highest order following on from Rival Sons, Howlin' Rain, Rich Robinson et al. As with those bands this takes you back to the late '60's, early '70's of Janis Joplin, Fleetwood Mac, Hendrix, even Grand Funk Railroad with its soulful, psychedelic blues and yet although it is looking back to those times it still feels fresh. This is a young band who are not merely coldly trying to replicate what has gone before, they are clearly steeped in this music, they live it, breath it and feel it, you know it runs through their veins, it is their lifeblood. Elin Larsson is a beautiful soulful singer, there is a pinch of Aretha Franklyn in there, a smidgen of Janis Joplin and more than a hint of Beth Hart. The guitarist Dorian Sorriaux is only 18 years old but has the maturity of a guitar player twice his age. There is more than touch of Peter Green to his tone, especially on the intro to 'Astralplane', but again references to plenty of the other greats such as Page, and Hendrix so that you cannot just pin the 'so and so' copyist label on him. The rhythm section are tighter than many that have been playing a lifetime longer than these two which makes you ask what blues pills have these guys been taking! The album rocks out in tracks such as 'Devil Man', 'Ain't No Change' and 'Gypsy' but with the slower blues of 'Little Sun' and 'No Hope Left For Me' offering a beautiful counterpoint. This is going to spend quite a bit of time in my cd player over the coming weeks. If you're a fan of the bands and artists referenced above then I think you might be in for a pleasant surprise when you listen this. Right, it's time for that British tour to support it now!!

Interesting stuff. Nothing new here at all, yet it sounds fresh. The vocalist is a cross between Janis Joplin and Beth Gibbons (Portishead) which sounds odd but it works. As the cover alludes to, this is very psych-rock with massive Cream influences, but the main influence here is Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac. Dig out Then Play On and Live at Boston, and tell me there are not some big, big influences on the album from here.
I've only given it one play through so far and will buy this, but if you're searching for original, this is not really original. However, it does sound really great and does have bring this era of rock into the 21st century, and if, like many of us, you're a Mac, Cream, Zeppelin etc etc fan you have to love this

let me remind you after playing this, prog-rock is not dead. this band take us on a magical trip back in time with this very good debut album, that reminds me of early 70s stuff I used to listen to. The power full female vocals remind me of Grace Slick from Jefferson Airplane think songs like "White rabbit" and say " Don't you want somebody to love" and compare them. What you should do is buy the album with the bonus DVD. featuring a live concert from 2013,It will put into perspective the improvised and excellent guitar work visually, that although is there on the album its not as predominant. This band consists of A Swedish female singer and 2 Americans and a Frenchman and have a look at the Interview on how they all met on the DVD. quite interesting . The album opener sees the bass tearing off at a frantic pace on a good starter " High class women" so it continues, things mellow out towards the middle of the album, one or two song failed to grab me here but there's good little number to close proceeding's called " little sun", for me the standout song is track 4 "Black Smoke" which builds up nicely and goes off into an improvised guitar break reminiscent of a good early 70s prog-rock track, good stuff.All in all A very good debut, with a distinctive sound, it gets 5 stars off me on the strength of the DVD bonus disc. Well worth a splash of the cash this, its well packaged/boxed and the production of the album is top draw.

10 days ago I'd never heard of this band,but having read the seemingly O.T.T.claims of the album/band description I had to give this a whirl.Nuclear Blast don't sign wishy-washy bands but full on in-yer-face rock.Well this isn't a female fronted symphonic metal band,but one with a feel for the blues,or spaced out blues.At just over 42 mins with tracks some already have their existing fans may feel a little short sold.For me it took until track 4 "Black Smoke" to convince me about the hype.Then Astralplane with it's opening nod to Peter Greens Fleetwood Mac really won me over.The near 40 mins of a live set on 2nd disc repeats 4 of the songs but they all sound better live.Seeing this whippersnapper guitarist with his flying V in hand made this old man happy.Elin has the voice and power to stop you in your tracks,but Dorians guitar is more likely to make you jealous.This had the immediacy of hearing WOLFMOTHERS debut album,the raw energy and spirit,in this case down to the step brother pairing of Zack & Cory on bass & drums whom put the band together. I missed out on St.Judes debut until this year a similar band with a big rep to live upto,I hope they both go onto bigger things.Don't wait for the Xmas ltd edition lava lamp set,these Pills won't upset your sound system.
