Over the years we’ve seen punk, hard rock & even alternative rock bands slowly erode into over-commercialized, corporate puppet shows. Talking to many music fans out there, the response is overwhelming. Give me something new, something fresh & fun. Something that doesn’t sound like — well Nikelback. Give me band that dishes out good old fashioned Indie Rock with a no holes barred musical delivery.
So across my desk slides the new CD by Detroit’s own Red Weather entitled Every Alleyway headed up by guitarist/singer/songwriter Gordy Hunt. What I heard put a smile on my face, finally a band that gets it. Red Weather is some of the best new music I’ve heard in quite a while & delivers many of the aforementioned items I spoke about. You want rock, you want punk, you want music that is packed with a fun filled Indie Rock vibe? Well look no further. This CD covers all the bases delivering solid playing & amazing songwriting & a musical flair that just lets it all hang out. Music reminds me of The White Stripes, Blind Melon, & even Blues Traveler , President of the United Sates of America
Every Alleyway by Red Weather is what we’ve all been waiting for. It’s a polished yet raw sounding production from start to finish that’s just a blast to listen to. It ‘s got it all – great playing, solid writing, & a raw Indie college rock feel. It’s definitely a musical production that gives us a fresh glimpse at a hot new band but takes us back a few years before everything started sounding like — well Nikelback.
