It´s time for some real rock and roll, you know the kind that sounds timeless and isn´t connected to any trends. I´m sure Josh Flagg is aiming for the big arenas with his energetic stadium rock.
All 3 tracks from the awesome "Lights out" EP are also included on the new LP "Tracing shapes" along with 7 brand new songs, featuring the strong "The floor it shakes" which is the new single.
Josh set the bar with this lovely rocker and continues with the Dave Grohl-like tracks "Take me on" and "One shot", these two songs would do just fine in any Foo Fighters setlist.
"Lights out" is still my favorite song, mostly because it bring thoughts to Matthew Good but the entire album is great.
Crank up the amps!
Highlights : Lights out, The floor it shakes, One shot, Black ink birds
Recommended if you like Foo Fighters, Deaf Havana, Matthew Good
