Label: Snaxville Recordings
Blues artist Amund Maarud is an artist that has released many albums through his career. We knew him for example from Morudes, who enlightened us with the album “Sinister Beat” 2017. Now we have an album of him with the formation Lucky Lips as his band. The album is called “Perfect Stranger” and is available now.
The songs are giving an interesting
range bluesy tracks. Is it “Daydream” which starts so dream, but
has that overall feel good touch on it, the Rock tune “Don’t Tell
Me How To Spend My Time” or maybe the cheerful and catchy
“Translate My Instructions” that captures most attention? Hard to
say. It’s merely an album that is seen as a whole, the diversity is
there, but it is brought together by Amund in style. Thinking of what
we hear a reference to Neil Young comes up, for its diversity not
Amund seem to have a good idea of what to bring for this album and the collaborations with the other artists are giving it the extra vibe it needs. The duet with Malin Pettersen (“Going Home”) is for example one of those songs where you just get that bit more by the collaboration.
All together this release is a fine one to listen. Will charm your Sunday afternoon and will be one that you give multiple spins.
