LOVE and a .38 - Shake The World (2013)
LOVE and a .38 is a new kickin' band exploding off the stages of Los Angeles bringing with them heavy hitting riffs, thunderous beats and addictive lyrics paving the way as Hollywood's newest rock royalty.
With a mix of band mates spreading from Oklahoma, San Francisco and back down to LA, this eclectic group of men blend to mix into this tightly knit music machine, retrieving the spirit of the real Sunset Strip Hard Rock years.
Love and a .38 have crafted a sound that is both familiar yet fresh, blending growling guitars with catchy, emotionally powered vocals.
Their thunderous American Hard Rock is written in the classic bluesy chromatic style, and although their sound is modern all in this band has a strong '80s reference.
Take as example the cover track featured here; the eighties pop classic "Sunglasses at Night" (Corey Hart). Love and a .38's version should be studied by bands who want to pay tributes and cover songs; they made this song their own and added so much more to make a cover song very enjoyable and fresh. And rockin' for sure.
One of the key items that makes this band truly different are the vocals. Singer Ryan Hudson gives a raw, powerful but controlled performance with vocal abilities that would match and even surpass any other Hard Rock singer currently out there.
On the other hand, if you were to close your eyes listening this album, you would think Gilby Clarke or Joe Perry are at charge of the guitars, playing their signature style of rhythm and blues guitar riffs.
Each member executes their role in the band to make you want to just rock out and have a good time; and isn't that what rock and roll is all about?
Tracks like "Lovely Lies", "Shots At Sunset", "Rock 'n Lola" and "Letter From The Devil" are crunchy, incendiary hard rockers recalling the genuine Hollywood scene of the '80s.
"Lovely Lies", "Just A Woman" and "Shine Up Your Scars" are more melodious yet punchy, while on some tracks as "Shake The World" they add some modern touches.
Seems there's no place for ballads in Love and a .38's catalogue, they just want to rock your socks off.
Dubbed by various industry figures as ‘the hardest working current band from Los Angeles’, Love and a .38 have opened for Mötley Crue, Ratt and played in the recent Sunset Strip Music Festival.
They really seem to deliver just what many Hard Rock acts are missing these days: loud guitars, booming vocals, thunderous bass and pounding drums, all packed with catchy melodies, sonic punch and attitude.
This stuff seriously ROCKS!
