At Spanish record label Family Spree Recordings they are focused on scanning the underground scene to discover new rock ‘n’ roll bands, and they do that very well, because every release is in the bull’s eye. The most recent proof of that is the return of the Madrid-based cult heroes of the Reverendo Band (formerly named Reverendo & The New Preacher Boys, now with a renewed line-up) with their new album Loco Amor. It’s a nice mix of rhythm & blues, early rock ‘n’ roll, 60s garage rock, and country influences. Besides seven original songs, one of which in two versions (the title track was recorded not only in Spanish but also in English, as Fooling love), there’s a successful cover here of The Gun Club’s Like Calling Up Thunder – all straight to your nucleus accumbens. This is energetic music that you should actually experience live, but which also guarantee you a good time at home or on the road.
Loco Amor is out now digitally and on vinyl LP through Family Spree Recordings.
