CD review FACTORY BRAINS "Hard Labor"

Veröffentlicht am 19. Februar 2016 von Markus W. in Factory Brains, The Temperance Movement, Rock, Soul, Blues, News, CD Review

(8/10) OK, Factory Brains might not that very well known till this day, but things might change. There are two points that gives me this idea. First of all they released with "Hard Labor" a pretty good new album and the guys got the chance to promote this longplayer as being the support slot for The Temperance Movement.

Factory Brains are into classic rock music that combines rock, soul and blues to an exciting cocktail you should have tried. Funny enough the musical expression is neither 'factory' nor 'brain'. The guys from Stockholm, Sweden recorded songs that are full of emotions and warmth. And the tracks spread a certain ease which comes naturally and doesn't seem to be 'hard labor'.

The first video was done for "Modern Day" which is a laid-back rock'n'roller; your soundtrack for a good time. Another song you also should have heard is "Now I Know", a real groover or check-out the soulful "Fork in the Road" with its folk appeal. 

In case you're looking for a more swinging energizer, go for a "Coffee Break" which includes a lot of blues instead of sugar.

Factory Brain convinced me. "Hard Labor" is an exciting album that could become the kick start into a successful future.
