album::Ladyhawk:Shots & a Tour

Do you like your rock’n’roll drenched in alcohol and a haze of other essences? In all honesty, if it isn’t is soaked in some mind deranger or expander, is it really rock’n’roll in the first place? There is a lot of music out there, and some of it is really good, but frankly most of it doesn’t come close to rockin’ me. It was about a year and a couple of months ago, since I saw Ladyhawk live and I was rather impressed with the music, cigarette smoke, and drinking. LADYHAWK will release their new album “Shots,” on March 4th.

Ladyhawk took up residence in an abandoned farm house behind the shopping mall in the band’s childhood hometown of Kelowna, British Columbia, armed only with recording gear, sangria and a piss pot. Two weeks later “Shots” was born. It is an album filled with the cold creaking and ghostly echoes of the old house in the dead of winter. Like a party for the last house standing in a sea of strip malls and condos, surely near the end of its time. “Shots” is the sound of Ladyhawk getting loose, turning up loud, downing a few more and howling at the moon. It evokes the devilish sounds of Goats Head Soup guitars, the honey-slides and howling of Neil Young in his darkest hours, and the phantoms that haunted Roky Erickson at the Holiday Inn.

A sneak peak of the album is being offered by Fader Magazine.
