It doesn’t take long for the listener to realize that this trio can flat-out play hi-energy rock & roll with a rootsy flavor. Wall’s guitar is dazzling on “Slideride,” a brisk instrumental where he delights in showing us all the wacky sounds he can get from his slide guitar. On “Sidewinder,” Wall’s tenor voice is not immediately distinctive but we grew to like it as the song and its familiar chord progression unfolded. Wall and company slow things down and shift into pop-rocker mode for “Something Beautiful,” showing a more contemporary dimension. We especially like the song’s female backup singers who bring a palpable amount of soul to the party. These recordings make it clear that Matty T Wall can rock the house.
