Rose Hill Drive - Rose Hill Drive
This young band combines rock and blues in a very modern way, and they have an interesting philosophy. Music first, business later. They’ve gathered a large underground fan base and released this album only after that. They let the fans and then the music business come to them, which is a very good way of doing it I think.
 
This has resulted in a brilliant debut album, that will probably explode within a not-too-long amount of time. The album sounds in one way very nineties grunge rock, but then written in a modern way. I can hear influences from bands like Pearl Jam and Soundgarden, but I also hear the newer twists from bands like Franz Ferdinand to name one. The overall sound has been executed without any use of pro-tools auto-tuning or any other gizmo’s. Which means that it sounds raw, but nevertheless very smooth thanks to Nick DiDia’s (RATM, Pearl Jam) co-production with the band.
 
I would like to emphasize that the name Soundgarden pops into my head quite a lot when listening to this album. I’ve never heard a vocalist that comes near to Chris Cornell’s earlier work, and the accompanying riffs give me the exact same feeling. So I’d say fuck that new Audioslave shit and listen to Rose Hill Drive!

Everything’s just right about this band. Nice artwork, good production that speaks for itself, good songwriting, perfect timing for material like this. I really wonder what will happen if they get a video on the television.
