Songs featured on this episode are from the album 3 – “Electric” and “Spiral Galaxies.”
Translated: “A remarkably versatile group that features an assortment of styles, with a penchant for experimental art rock and a love of dance rock and loud guitars and drums!”
Translated: “In contrast to their previous psychedelic hard rock records, “3” contains more indie rock music such as in the songs “My Living Brain” and “Pushing”. But you can rest assured that the loud guitar rock sound is still sufficiently present on other songs on this album such as “Spiral Galaxies”, “Hover” and “Pappa Fell Down”. The sound of Jimi Hendrix, ‘The Doors’ and ‘The Black Keys’ influenced work of ‘Revolushn’ on this new album is mainly intended for fans of the louder guitar rock music.”
“This heartfelt, and sweetly organic new album opens on the upbeat and infectious psych grooves of Jackfix and the drum and sax-led rocker Electric and then they are seamlessly followed by the melodious, mid-tempo balladry of My Living Brain, the pop-rock of Puppy, before we are brought forth the foot to the floor melodic psych rock of Spiral Galaxies.
Up next is the trippy, psych-infused, guitar rock of the brilliant Little Red Dolls and the free flowing, fervently drum-led Hover and they are in turn backed up by the early Alice Copper-esque Pushing and the rocker Papa Fell Down, with the album coming to a close on the layered rhythms and guitar licks within The Beast Inside.”
“Revolushn are an exceptional band of musicians who have come together to make a diverse, and quite different album of original and unique songs. Its Progressive, strange, quirky and out there with the originality of Gong, a bit of Floyd /Devo and with a kicking punk attitude. I for one would love to hear these songs live, I’m sure it would a vision of uniqueness and pure feast for the brain. Very Different very Strong and Weirdly Dangerous.”
“I enjoyed this album from start to finish with great tracks like The Beast Inside, My Living Brain, Little Red Dolls, Pushing and so much more. This release showcases a fantastic performance with brilliant musicianship and awesome vocals, a great job with their songwriting talent, and a superb recording and production by NO Mansfield and Arron Connor (Bone Thugs and Harmony, Cher, Ed Sheeran, Dr. Dre). This is definitely an album you need to check out and then add to your library at the end of the month from all major music retailers.”
Featuring former members of Sparks, Devo, Buffalo Springfield and more!
