Dead Rock West (from the album More Love available from Omnivore Recordings)
Joy and heartbreak take a hit of California sunshine to tell their tale on the psychedelic Roots Rock of More Love, the recent release from Dead Rock West. Produced by John Doe, More Love is the fourth album from the Los Angeles, California-based band. Elliot Easton (The Cars) lends his guitar work on More Love, hitting “Boundless Fearless Love” like waves constantly in motion and Greg Leisz stopped by the studio gliding over “Singing on the Telephone” with his pedal steel guitar rising up like the heat in the desert tale of a night at the Ace Hotel. The duo of Cindy Wasserman and Frank Lee Drennen make up Dead Rock West, offering originals tunes on More Love and giving a touch of twang to Sam Cooke’s “Bring It on Home to Me”.
Guitar jangle sparkles against the secret-laden edge of “Darkness Never Tells” and slowly builds up as it makes promises in “Waiting Patiently”. The title track opens More Love with pronounced strums before quieting to a Country sway while “Bleeding Blue” drips its color on acid-drenched sonics and ‘Radio Silence” whispers its story as Dead Rock West strip down the playing for the dreamy “Tell Me Goodbye” and percolate the beat as it dials in stations on “Stereo Love”.
