Smoke Notes

After the demise of the much loved TrinityRoots, Warren Maxwell has gathered together a new group of supremely talented musicians and, after honing their skills on the live scene over the last year or so, have finally release their highly anticipated debut album - The Onus of Sand.
Maxwell (Rhodes, vocals), along with Joe Callwood (guitars), Tom Callwood (bass) and Rick Cranson (drums), carry over TrinityRoots' deeply spiritual vibe, but take it into far rockier terrain. The opening track 'Introduction' might lull you into thinking we might be up for nothing more than TrinityRoots mk. 2, but lurking under the atmospheric soundscape and layered vocal harmonies you catch quick snatches of electric guitar and an ever-growing swell of noise that hints of what is actually to come.
The album really gets under way with 'Where We Get Born' a southern-Blues stomper that Ben Harper would probably have given his right hand to have written. Then we get 'Baby' and the no-guesses-as-to-the-influence 'Jimi', the former a slow-burning tune that inexorably rises to the finest of crescendos, the latter an extended blues/jazz/gospel work-out that melds the influences of Hendrix, Led Zep and The Doors into a brilliant, rollercoaster ride of psychedelic sound. Then comes the quiet and contemplative 'Onus', something of a breather before the band move to the nearly twenty minute long 'Little Bird' and 'Little Bird [reprise]', another epic psychedelic rock piece that takes the listener on an amazing journey through a series of aural delights.
If you're a lover of 60s rock and psychedelia, of music with passion and soul, and of music that's not afraid to run in the face of current trends, then this is an album for you. Recommended.
