This EP is your once in a lifetime shining star. It is also the exception to my rule.

For your absolute listening pleasure to the point of audio orgasm, comes along a blues/rock band with their leads hailing from Chicago, Illinois area transplanted into Austin, Texas just a couple of years ago or so.

The Reverent Few is truly a local treasure. A hidden gem from much of the world. And its the job of reviews such as this, to speak the word to the rest of the listening world to spread what has turned into the year’s best EP purchase of 2016!!!

Exploding out of the gates with a seriously addicting and toe-tapping tune of “Marjorie” to the soulful tear-producing ballad of “I’ll Bring The Wine (Why Can’t You Love Me),” The Reverent Few is the complete definition of magical mastery in music. An all-star collection that is sure to reach the deepest parts of your soul. It truly is sexy soul with rock and roll.

Worth every cent. Check them out here.

Ten snake bites out of ten. YOU NEED TO BUY THIS NOW!!

I have been waiting to get my hands on this one for about two months now.

To start with, I am going to take a quote from the film, “Friday After Next”.. paraphrased.

This music is so damned good, it makes you wanna slap yo mama!

Black Heart Saints is a breath of fresh air inside of the already convoluted and surfeit music scene of Austin, Texas.

This four song gem was worth the sacrifice as well as the money. Their music matches their frenzied stage show. In which many people have come to me and have described it in their own words.

“Touch The Sky” is one song that you will listen to, and you will not be able to sit still. It summons every fiber of your being to get up and move. “Wasting Away” will also get your head banging, your pulse pounding, and your blood flowing.

After exploding on to the scene from SXSW Festival in 2014, Black Heart Saints has been polishing their musical reputation ever since, opening for top name bands.

Honestly… what more could you want in a band that is making its way to the top, and taking no prisoners?? This is a ride you wanna get in on.

After recently playing with Texas legends Dangerous Toys in 2015 and ORGY during the first weekend of 2016, Black Heart Saints is finding its fan base growing in a rapid explosion. Their music matches their energy and the band is no joke. Top notch serious musicians wanting to get their message out to the world and taking everyone in one at a time.

This EP earns a 4 out of 4 Black Hearts. ♥♥♥♥

If you wanna get to rockin’ or if you really want something to fill your eyes for a live performance. Black Heart Saints is the band for you!!!!
