Flamin’ Groovies drummer Tony T. Sales leads new outfit, Ardent Sons, which gathers the best of blues, garage rock, and soul on “Take Me Down Easy”.

Ardent Sons will issue its debut album No More Than This on 3 May. The group is led by Tony T. Sales, current drummer for the legendary Flamin’ Groovies and nephew of Tony and Hunt Sales (Tin Machine, Iggy Pop, Todd Rundgren). The San Francisco-based outfit has released the single “Take Me Down Easy” with just under four minutes of soulful, dark ‘n’ sexy rock ‘n’ roll in tune with the genre’s bluesy roots. With R&B-inspired vocal harmonies and an unstoppable swing, the track quickly puts recent garage-oriented contenders to rest. Though in tune with contemporary sounds, this could just as easily be an obscure culled from the classic Nuggets compilation, replete with vintage organ and mysterious lyrics. [READ MORE HERE]

BLURT Song Premiere: Money For Rope “Picture Us”
Aussie rockers’ new album drops this week.
BY JOHN B. MOORE

For their third effort, Picture Us, the Melbourne-based five piece Money For Rope opted to produce, mix and master the entire record on their own. And it’s hard to argue with the results: a record brimming with energetic garage and surf rock, punctuated with strong moments of soul and psych.

You can hear for yourself with the Blurt premiere of the trippy title track.

“When I was young and left home alone along with my brother, I was surprised by my parents, who had returned home from holidays early; possibly as an act of deserving untrustworthiness,” said singer/songwriter/guitarist Jules McKenzie, describing the song. “I was rapidly cleaning up from a party, and wearing what was, unaware to me, dad’s best suit.

“It seems that when you are young you long to be older, and I wonder if when I am older, I will long to be young again. I wonder if there is a point in the middle where it crosses, and how I will feel about love. We recorded this through walkie-talkies we had as kids, where there was a ledger above a large orange button that gave the alphabet in morse code.”

The album, set for release next week, on Friday, March 8 ,on Cheersquad Records & Tapes, was recorded over the course of one long hot Australian summer.
