Robbert Duijf

Robbert Duijf – Dangerous Mood

Meestal speelt Robbert Duijf als solo-artiest, maar deze keer niet. Deze keer wilde hij iets anders proberen. Dus begin 2020 stapte hij de Husky Studio binnen. Als kleine jongen droomde hij er al van om een LP te maken, zo’n magische zwarte schijf. Maar de wereld vertraagde en we eindigden in een lockdown. Dit gaf hem wat extra tijd, tijd om nog eens na te denken. Zijn gedachten werden steeds duidelijker en beslissingen werden genomen. “Stick to the plan, that’s what the old man said!” Uiteindelijk viel alles op zijn plek. Dit zou niet alleen een soloalbum worden, maar hij had ook de eer om met een aantal getalenteerde muzikanten samen te werken. Het plezier dat ze hadden deed hem beseffen, dat muziek maken hem het gevoel geeft echt te leven. Dus hier is het album. Geniet! ... Verder lezen

Bones Owens

Bones Owens – Bones Owens

The self-titled, full-length debut from Bones Owens is a selection of songs both gloriously gritty and undeniably euphoric. In a bold departure from the moody Americana of his acclaimed EPs Hurt No One and Make Me No King, the Missouri-bred musician’s first release with Thirty Tigers delivers a powerful sound deeply inspired by ’60s garage-rock, Hill Country blues, and the swampy roots-rock of bands like Creedence Clearwater Revival (“the first record I remember stealing from my dad when I was ten and just starting to play guitar,” according to Owens). A potent showcase for his formidable guitar work—a talent he’s displayed in performing with artists as eclectic as Yelawolf and Mikky Ekko— Bones Owens arrives as a full-tilt expression of Owens’ wildest impulses, all swinging rhythms, and swaggering riffs ...
