Highway Chapel Is Chopper Riding Music Deluxe
‘Highway Chapel’‘s six-song EP of the same name is straightforward blues-rock that’s as catchy as rabies. Each song hits like a freight train, driven by crunchy guitar riffs and memorable choruses. The tempos are fast, the six-strings are loud, and the singing is right on the money.
The drums sound like the way live drums should sound in a room. It is a bit of an old school approach trying to avoid the close-miked set-up that sounds flat and lifeless.
Enjoy this piece of smashing rock and roll and leave the demands for complexity for another occasion. They simply don’t belong here when we’re dealing with music this effectively simple.
