With an upbeat skip our final act tonight got things underway. There is a tremendous groove behind “Everything is Turning Alright” which gives the running a smart degree of inspiration. The bongo drums stand out here and they also seem to trade on a hidden roadhouse vibe as they turn it all on. The whip in the sound gives “Work The Distance” maintains a Blaxploitation vibe that sits upright. The way it is worked is tight and gives them more reach as a band. Instrumentally it is progressive and this distinction is what you take note of over everything else.
Building on the expanse of the intro, “City Out There” benefits from the quickened lick of the guitar. From there the loaded pace is squarely built and becomes the driving force behind the delivery. One of the noted things about their set here tonight was the level of composure they have. On “Hear The Music Play” there is a high correlation about the musicianship. This leads to a sense of revelry on the bridge but the timings also add up here to give the tune flavour.
“Sekana” is a hardy affair. Some aspects here lean toward a latin aspect in the sound. How it works relies on the fluid aspects, but they also seem aware of these richer qualities by how warm the play feels on the bridge. What can only be described as a tremendous pyre of sound cam “Over The Mound”. The layering works here. In one sense the elements play individually but they also hold everything together. This is an interesting dynamic with a prominent emphasis on the instrumental elements that allows everything to become bigger in scope. Their final effort on the night was “Black Dog”. The high instrumentalism again carries a dignified degree of composure and artistry that leans heavily on developing the plying side. The structure found on the bridge serves it well, even if it does feel formulaic in a sense. Overall though there is a lot of significance to what is put on show and they do give it everything, which they do deserve to be commended for.
