    The three-piece Pennsylvania retro band Pearls & Brass specialize in late-1960s blues-rock. Their full-length debut, THE INDIAN TOWER, is a more-or-less constant onslaught of the aforementioned genre, with the boogie regularly interspersed with progressive rock flourishes and snaky lead guitar lines. The album's imaginative arrangements lift it out of the ordinary, though: the ethereal chanting of the album opener "The Tower" is a strong hint of the band's creative power, while "The Boy of the Willow Tree" is a full-on exercise in greasy rock & roll.

  • Critic Reviews
    Entertainment Weekly (p.84) - "By combining math-rock complexity with raw power, songs like 'Tower' and 'Black Rock Man' hypnotize as they pulverize."
    Uncut (p.76) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he youthful Pearls And Brass convincingly recreate the early-'70s heyday of the denim-clad power trio....THE INDIAN TOWER is enhanced by an admirable lack of posturing."
    Mojo (Publisher) (p.94) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Pure gonzo blues-rock boogie that cooks it up and blasts it out like the long distant glory days of The Groundhogs, Blue Cheer and Cream..."
