RockmusicRaider Review - Dirty Sound Magnet - The Bloop - Album CoverGotta love them! ‘The Bloop’ sounds like stuff we already heard really and felt somewhere, but when – ah, back in the ’70s. Back in time when laid back and cool Rock was in fashion, kind of Southern Bluesy Tunes that really relax you – good for the soul after all that complicated Metal stuff that I recently listened to. Like getting yourself a bucket of shrimp down at the beach near New Orleans and then chillin’ out some later with a cold beer in a beach chair getting your jelly-belly burned. Or just hanging out after a tough day at work.

Flavors of ‘Jimy Hendrix here, some essence of ‘Led Zeppelin‘ there, sprinkled with some ‘Pink Floyd‘ – and sometimes the tune almost sounds like ‘Cockney Rebel‘ and  ‘Strawbs‘ combined.

RockmusicRaider Review - Dirty Sound Magnet - What Lies Behind - Album CoverA friend of mine dragged me to a concert at the Montreux Jazz Festival to see these guys live. To see Dirty Sound Magnet? WTF? Dirty who? To watch What Lies Behind. I admit, I had no idea what to expect. Hmm.

Small concert hall feeling like a bunker – probably is a bunker, stuffy and no air, but great sound. The band performing their – at that time – only record.

Lovingly crafted songs in a bluesy, rocky style reminiscent of the 70’s, brought to life by this Swiss (Yes! Not US) band around Didier Coenegracht, supported by an excellent Stavros Dzodzos on the lead guitar.Got hooked? Raid this some more...
