Amberjacks – Amberjacks

 
Amberjacks – Amberjacks
Self released – 2014
Rock, Alternative, Stoner, Seventies, Blues, Psych
Rated: ****

A new group of bandits is approaching from the southern Dutch horizon. They call themselves Amberjacks and are on the move and on the prowl. Looking for loot to pillage and towns to plunder. For on their self-titled debut their seventies inspired psychedelic blues has this quaint southern or even Americana atmosphere permeating the entire album. Make no mistake; this is rock, heavy rock and even on the moments where they slow down; their heaviness shines through. For the most part their music moves towards seventies rock ‘n roll that aims to move the soul and make the body shake like crazy. But on other moments their songs, heavy laden with hooks and refrains that will speak to everyone. Their pop sensible melodies weave itself nicely through the nineties alternative and accessible stoner from the 00’s and they will have you air-guitaring like a madman and gulping for air. Amberjacks produced a highly daring and masterful piece of art. Join the gang and let’s rob a bank…
