Album title: 'The Hardest Walk'
Artist: Soledad Brothers
Label: Loog *extended for web
Walker's vocals are uncannily similar to Bobby Gillespie's lethargic slur and although not a problem, there are times when it appears a Primal Scream tribute act have hijacked your stereo Ã¢Â€Â“ none so more than on latest single Good Feeling. As a trio, the 'Brothers show impressive ability and imagination in the choice and use of instruments Ã¢Â€Â“ 'Brother Oliver Henry is credited with no less than nine instrumental inputs to the album. Such ability would appear to reinforce their reputation as a thrilling live act. Unfortunately for the thrill-seekers among us, this doesn't entirely shine through on record. [Jon Seller]
