MINORITY BLUES BAND: Momentary Beautiful Burnout: CD

A collection of outtakes, comp tracks, and split releases bundled into one release for your listening pleasure. And you will get much pleasure from this record, I promise you, my friends. Jagged guitars, vocals that veer in and out of Squirrel Bait country, and rock-solid song structures overall. “Metaphysical Burst” is my favorite song title here, but there really isn’t a full on clunker to harp on about. Bass lines bubble along with consistency, drums supply the back beat without being overwrought, and the guitars mesh pretty seamlessly with the vocals. A great power trio that should be missed by many, but, hopefully, this release will be enjoyed by more than a few.
