The Aces brand of energetic leftfield punk/blues hits all the right spots, combining a heavy-duty growler of a singer with a guitarist who jabs and slashes like a cornered serial killer, and a wailing siren of a harmonica, which says that the cops are coming, but not to rescue you. The essence of this sort of stuff is to unsettle and even intimidate the listener while carefully maintaining complete control from your own end.
America’s favorite two-man power trio. HUGElarge are Robert Malta and Matt Norelli, two musicians who have years of experience in the professionals game of extensive touring, long recording sessions, hauling pounds upon pounds of equipment – your usual soul crushing tedium. Convinced that it was possible to regain the excitement of banging out songs for fun, Malta bought a tiny Silvertone amplifier at a garage sale and talked Norelli into playing just one drum, “purely as a way to get together and have fun,” insists Malta.
Their minimalist approach is intact, and a HUGElarge show is a damn good time, owing in part to the duo’s impeccable taste in choosing cover songs by the likes of ? & The Mysterians, Roky Erickson, The Standells, T. Rex, and The Stooges among others.
