Have You Got The Blues?

Hypnotic blues with a soulful twist, The NaveBlues are bringing the blues kicking and screaming into the modern day and the results are impossible to ignore.

Watch the video to Possess You here…

“Possess You”, their latest release, is an extraordinary demonstration of Nave Punkdik’s sensational harmonica-playing, conjuring up sounds which cause your spine to twist and your brain to hop. The band as a whole are clearly extremely talented however, and the musicianship throughout their work is impressive. Their cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Thank You” is a good showcase of this, taking what was originally a quite simple, plaintive song and broadening the scope both musically and visually.

Watch the video to Thank You here…

The NaveBlues defy any expectations the listener might have about the blues as a genre, this is music for fans of exceptional musicianship, great song-writing and who are ready to embrace a sound which has elements of the familiar taken to places way up in the stratosphere.

Be sure to keep one eye on The NaveBlues and follow them on social media here!

Interview with Matty T Wall

BLUE SKIES ALBUM COVER

Matty T Wall is a rock guitarist and singer with a bluesy and hi-octane sound. He has a new album out titled Blue Skies.  Read our interview with him below:

  1. How did you get your initial start in music?

    I started playing guitar maybe around 11yrs old, after being smitten by the look and sound of the electric guitar.  Angus Young from ACDC was my fave, as was Mark Knopfler and later on, Eric Clapton.  I didn’t join my first band until many years later, which was incidentally an original heavy metal band (cue headbang) – Metallica and other bands of the time were the sort of music that was getting people excited, so I followed it along.   I was into loud, aggressive and exciting music as a teenager, but I always felt the blues was where it was at.   Blues could say so much with so little – but growing up, nobody listened to it, I just kept that to myself until much later.

    2. What would be your ultimate aim in the industry?

    Well, I want to take the music I love, which is generally music from 3 points in time – 50s-60s American blues, 60s-70s rock, and 90s alternative rock and bring it into the 21st century.  This is a work in progress, but the songwriting and creating aspect is so enjoyable, I will be doing this for a long time.   Ultimately, if I can make records the resonate strongly with people who also love this sort of music, then I am happy.  You create art to make a statement and to make the world a more interesting and colourful place.

    3. How long have you been writing your own music?

    Pretty much as long as I have been playing guitar I have been writing riffs and songs.  Bands that I have played with have usually started out as cover bands and then morphed into original bands, as I get comfortable and want to move the music forward.  I am pretty relentless at trying new ideas and experimenting with things until they sound good – this can be a good and bad thing.  Even when playing covers, I want to give them an original slant.

    4. Who are your top three influences and why?

    That is such a hard question to answer, my influences change every few months or so as I start listening to different things.  As far as the regular favourites that I always come back to, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Clapton, ZZTop, Hendrix and Jeff Beck all get a pretty good work out.  As does Van Halen recently.   Contemporary artists I like listening to would have to include Gary Clark Jr.  His first album still floors me.   Trying to incorporate more r&b and hip-hop elements has been a fun little experiment that I have been trying recently in a similar vein to what he has done.  Wu-Tang and Eminem get a mention here.

    5. Is there anything you would like people to know about your current release?

    Well, being a certified “tone-junkie” I would have to say – get the album on CD – it sounds so much better.  I had the album mastered for CD, and by listening on the car stereo.   I have never been big into mp3, although it is a good way to check out music.  I grew up with the excitement of getting a new CD and looking at all the album art and lyrics, and now I am big into vinyl as it is a similar experience but even more tactile.   You can get it shipped free anywhere in the world from www.mattytwall.com – so get in touch.   I might look at releasing a vinyl version at some point in time also.

     6. Where are you based and what’s your local scene like? Any favourite venues?

    I’m based in Perth, Western Australia which is recognized as one of the most remote capital cities in the world.  In that respect, touring can be a tough and expensive thing to do, but it makes the local scene very tough, competitive and seemingly quite talented.  A great many internationally recognized artists are from my hometown.  The two big ones would have to be Bon Scott (ACDC) and Michael Hutchence (INXS).   Although they had to eventually move to Sydney/Melbourne to further their ambitions.  There is that feeling that this is a small town and one must break out of it – hard to describe, but extremely recognisable and palpable in this city where musicians and artists are concerned.

     7. Who else can you recommend from your local scene for people to have a listen to?

    Tame Impala, Pendulum and Karnivool are all contemporary bands here in Perth that have made their mark worldwide and are definitely worth a listen.

    8. Give our readers a round up of where they can find you online and hear more of your music.

    Definitely head to www.mattytwall.com to have a listen to some music and get a copy of the CD.  iTunes/Spotify and all the usual suspects are places that you can have a listen too.  Feel free to jump on facebook too if you want to say hi, or if you would like to hit me up to tour in your part of the world!

 

Kinky Dove ready to release their new self-titled EP

3 track release set to be unleashed on June 15th

scott_2

Born in in Australia but now living in London, Kindy Dove is the musical moniker of frontman Scott Wade and his evolving collective of musicians. Progenitors of gritty, driving rock, the group are readying themselves for a fresh assault on the music industry with a brand new three track EP.

Their particular brand of rock and roll, defined in many ways by the bluesy, post-rock growl of Wade on vocals, is currently in short supply both nationally and globally, and Kinky Dove are now looking to redress that balance.

For a taste of their punchy style, check out the video to EP track ‘Some Kind of Fool’, featuring an epic slap-happy montage of Hollywood moments.

The EP also features a remix/cover version of classic 1978 track ‘Another Girl Another Planet’ by The Only Ones – in this case titled simply ‘Another Girl’.

There is also a trance remix of ‘It’s Called Heartache’ on the EP. You can find the video for this at

The EP is online at

Produced by Chris Kimsey, previously of Olympic Studios, the EP marks Kinky Dove out as one of the earthiest rock bands on the scene. Fans of Scott Wade and Kinky Dove before they began working together, the producer understood the style and heights at which the music was aiming, and helped mould that vision into the musical reality that Kinky Dove has become.

The CD was mixed by Wade. Studio legend Phill Brown loved the sound of the CD, commenting that the mixes were “open and alive.”

The resulting EP is a continuation of form from previous album ‘Kinky Dove vol. 1’, and the latest step in Kinky Dove’s  climb.
