Six Bar Break 'Nashville Calling' (Country Music Review C/O Push Power Promo)

An understated, haunting country rock track with plenty of replay value.

This post is in association with pushpowerpromo.com. For more details see the bottom of the post.

The melancholic instrumentation is understated but pleasing throughout; the introductions to both the first and second verses are especially nice.  The guitar melody is very catchy.


There are plenty of evocative and quotable lyrics here and Ben's delivery is heartfelt and memorable. 

I am not 100 per cent taken with the refrain ('all I know, know') although I am not entirely sure why. Also the ending feels a tad abrupt.  I would have loved to hear Ben and band let loose with a big, raucous climax. However, I can appreciate that doing so may have been too far removed from the understated feel of the rest of the track. Even with these slight quibbles I enjoyed Ben's words and performance. 
I'll be sure to revisit this track and follow the band's progress with great interest.
I very much liked the mix. There's a great balance between both the instruments themselves and between the instruments and the vocals. I would be tempted to perhaps have just the absolute tiniest more high end but again, I can totally appreciate that this could spoil the warm, earthy vibe of the track.

'Nashville Calling' brings to mind such legends as Pearl Jam, Tracy Chapman and Live. I very much like the track and I have focused on the few elements that I may - emphasis on may - tweak in the name of 'tough love'. Nothing I say takes away from the good to very good impression I get of the band from this track.

I'll be sure to revisit this track and follow the band's progress with great interest. Guys, you have a new follower in me.

New Music Review: Georgel: ‘Colibrí’

'Colibrí' highlights Georgel’s potential as a superstar in the making.




It is always an honour and a pleasure to receive new music to check out and review; especially when it's as enjoyable a listening experience as Georgel’s ‘Colibri’.


A slice of swaggering, sensual, big band pop, ‘Colibri’ is a superb offering from the singer songwriter.

A slice of swaggering, sensual, big band pop, ‘Colibri’ is a superb offering from the singer songwriter.  ‘Colibrí’ immediately demands listener attention thanks to punchy horn stabs, satisfying drum fills and Georgel’s strong vocals.  Listener attention is maintained throughout due to the athletic and theatrical flair of both vocals and instrumentation. These theatrics never descend into ham or kitsch.

The hook is slinky and sensual, adding an extra layer to an already super-enjoyable cut. The memorable arrangement and vocals, together with professional mixing and mastering mean the song would be as much at home in a big-budget Hollywood …
