I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Live at the Eddy, by The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer and it’s a great live concert. Opening with Cry A Little, a soulful rocker seeming like a boogie just waiting to bust loose features Shawn Hall on vocal and harmonica and Matt Rogers on guitar, backed by Andrina Turenne and Dawn Pemberton on backing vocals and Geoff Hilhorst on keys. With a solid bottom and raw guitar riffs, this is a solid opener. Roll with the Punches is a cool, Mississippi Hill Country flavored track with great harmonious vocals gives the track real feel. Love Me ‘fore Ya Leave Me’ is another hill country flavored, stripped down rhythm but with the addition of Hall’s harmonica and rich backing vocals it gives the track a real full southern rock twist. Very nice. Father’s Son has a real nice underlying funk over a basic stripped down rocker. Hall’s harmonica work adds nicely to the feel and the gospel like vocal tension on the track makes it one of my favorites on the release. Wrapping the release is a cool, acoustic bluesy ballad featuring the strong vocals of Hall, Turenne and Pemberton. This is a real cool release and a definite check out suggestion.
