Pearly Goats Death and Reckoning Review





Maryland’s
Pearly Goats describe what they do as ” A heathy mix of riffs, doom. punk and hippie shit all blended together for some good old sonic escapism” and that just about sums up the bands fourth and brand new release ”
Death and Reckoning“.


The Hole” opens proceedings with a fuzzy mid tempo tune that has a touch of
Drive By Truckers alt. country rockiness in its vibe, a vibe that is further enhanced by guitarist/vocalist
Jay
Schlosberg’s excellent blend of indie/country tinted vocal tones.


Paw Paw” is up next and sees drummer
Wilmer Earl Berry Jr. and bassist
Paul Kelley laying down a slightly alt./grunge groove around which
Schlosberg provides a deliriously effective guitar motif and a vocal melody that listeners will be singing long after the track finishes.


Sweeper” follows and has
Pearly Goats drifting hazily into the realms of the lysergic and jazzy with a stunningly beautiful slow burning psychedelic tome that builds layer by glorious layer and sees
Schlosberg laying down a swathe of shimmering guitar colouring over and around
Kelley and
Berry Jr’s sympathetic backing.


Be Them” ramps up the grungier elements of the bands sound but salts those elements with a touch of doom-like atmospherics giving the whole groove a sort of
Seattle alt. heroes
Nirvana meets,
Finnish doomsters,
Vinum Sabbatumfeel, a strange blend but perfectly palatable.


Slow Tomb” closes ”
Dead and Reckoning” with a riff fuelled instrumental groovathon of guitar led pyrotechnics that sees
Schlosberg referencing everyone from
The Byrds
Jim McGuinn to
Led Zeppelin’s
Jimmy Page in his excellent choice of notes and sonic delivery all superbly held up by
Kelley’s liquid bass lines and
Berry Jr’s jazzy drumming chops.


Pearly Goats
Dead and Reckoning” sits a little left of field to much of the doom and stoner rock coming out of the
Baltimore, Maryland scene but do not let that for one minute stop you giving this little beauty a spin, it rocks…a little differently but rocks nonetheless

Check it out…….
