  •  The Independent Musicians CD Reviews

    Welcome to the EvO:R Independent CD Reviews Section.
    I would like to take a few minutes to introduce ourselves to everyone. The EvO:R review section features reviews from various independent musicians that submit material for our consideration.

    I wanted to let you know a little about our review teams collective thoughts on music. It's important to let the people we review know what we think of their music and how we listened to their creations.

    We hold nothing back! The team has been instructed to be honest and respectful of all CD's reviewed.

    Over the years we’ve seen rock, pop, and even hard rock slowly erode into over-commercialized, corporate puppet shows providing music that is extremely sing songy, predictable, popish and highly corporate. I hereby call this new breed of music “Poser Rock” and I want to personally thank all the corporate giants for successfully transforming “Sex Drugs & Rock n’ Roll” into “Yoga, Vitamins and Nikelback” Of course millions of musical lemmings don’t know the difference and trust me when I say not everyone is entertained.

    Talking to many music fans out there the response is overwhelming. Give me something new, something fresh, something real. So across my desk slides the new CD by Dirty Hurricane (Rude, Crude & Unattractive) a band that hails from Toronto, Canada. Their recordings showcase the eclectic songwriting approach: from upbeat, musically-involved pieces to simple, minimalist moody tracks to full on grove studio creations all contained therein, recent recordings presents a no holds barred collection of songs.

    It may not be the most modern sounding collection to digest, but its rewards are manifold, and at the center of each piece and every arrangement is an effective, if often simple, melody. Theses recordings find a band like Dirty Hurricane channeling (rather than being inspired or influenced by) a wide array popular-music-history's critically renowned American classics like The Derek Tucker Band, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Faces and The Average White Band. When I spun this CD I must admit what I heard put a smile on my face and had me wanting to go to the nearest pub and get into a brawl. It’s a nice easy flowing record that delivers solid songwriting with a nice rocking feel.

    Dirty Hurricane reminds me of a modern day Black Crows with a classic rock aftertaste. You will also hear a side of Alternative Rock, and even straight up Hard Rock along the way. If you like the above bands you should definitely check out this CD. My favorite track is probably “L’ll Further Down the Road”. This CD from Dirty Hurricane is invigorating. Invigorating in the sense that it will lift your spirits, and give you a sense of hope that real rock music is not officially dead yet.

    Conclussion
    This CD is a solid release with many solid grooves with a guitar driven sound and entertaining vibe. Dirty Hurricane is a band that gives us a fresh glimpse of what Rock music is supposed to sound like and takes us back a few years – before everything started sounding like – well like NIKELBACK.
