Blackdust - Blackdust Album Cover

Brazilian football might be lately not as good as it was years ago, but the music is still world class. Here's a new awesome band from São Paulo and their self-titled debut album, that I discovered just two days ago. Since then I listen to this album at the higher volume and I'm fully anticipating the neighbours knocking on the door wondering what the hell is going on.

I can't even begin to describe how great this record is. This album is short, but gives you enough fun to where it doesn't matter on the length. Not one song on this album is below exceptional, there's no filler. Basically, it's energetic and bluesy retro rock. It has a lot of catchy guitar riffs, cool guitar licks, wild solo's, an impassioned singer with a lot of soul and the quality of the sound is great. You get the feeling that you've heard it all before, but soon realise this is brand new hard driving blues rock. In some ways, Blackdust reminds me of Wolfmother. It's not exactly the same sound, but there certainly is a similar vibe.

It's an excellent piece of work. If you like rock, if you like big riffs and pounding drums - Blackdust is for you. Get it, put it on at your next party and Rock and Roll all night long! I'm sure everybody will love it!

Oh, and did mention it's available as a free "name your price" download on their Bandcamp?
