NIGHT SLAVES: Three and a Half: LP

Jul 28, 2020

This album contains a reasonable assemblage of ’60s riffs forged with ’90s production tropes. “Absolute” contains a bouncy keyboard riff similar to a famous ? And The Mysterians song coupled with mid-tempo, echo-laden tambourine keeping pace. “Midnight” lessens the pace a bit with a slow guitar strum and Oasis-style drama in the vocal intervals. Most of the songs travel with a mid-paced groove. Nothing on the album jumped out at me: it evokes the higher-end offerings of ’90s alternative radio. –Billups Allen (Self-released, nightslaves.bandcamp)
