Automatic Sam – Sonic Whip


Automatic Sam – Sonic Whip
Quadrofoon – 2013
Rock, Garage, Psychedelic, Alternative, Stoner
Rated: *****

Our hearts were burning with fear and despair when we heard that the rhythm section of Dutch formation Automatic Sam had left the band after the amazing Texino record in 2011. Their first official release Hot Foot Oil in 2009 had been a righteous firestarter and the follow-up Texino had conquered our garage rocking souls completely. But we can now rest easy and rock hard for the new foursome has delivered one crackling muddy powerhouse of a successor named Sonic Whip. With drummer Tim van Delft (De Staat) and bassist Erik Harbers (Woost) the grade a riffs explode even louder through the speakers. We hear something heavier, more grinding and compelling. They even managed to condense their bluesy rock sound from earlier albums into something wickedly wayward and headstrong giving more air to every composition. Ambitious and dynamic and with a highly infectious sultry atmosphere. The constant sweaty tension makes this one of the best albums to come from the Netherlands this year…
