Artist: Whisky Legs
Review by Simon C. Thalheim
I was thrilled to review this album, because I’d missed the fast-rising Québec City-based blues rockers when they played the Festival d’Été in July 2016.
Maude Brochu (vocals and piano), Pascal Denis (drums, percussion, acoustic guitar, vocals, resonator and electric guitar) and Guillaume Méthot (electric guitar, acoustic guitar and back vocals) draw us into their world with their latest album.
This EP consists of 13 songs where the ambiance is on point.
From a dog barking a to wooden staircase cracking, every little detail makes you feel next to the band, in an intimate jam session in a cozy basement. The CD case gives you a real-life view of that basement.
The whole project moves like a roller-coaster from hard blues rock to ballads.
Brochu’s voice drifts through the trees like backcountry skiing in an outstanding overall performance.
Whisky Legs is St-Roch’s answer to Will Hoge: trailblazers in their field in the region.
This is an album of bloodshot-eyed blues rock mixed with deep ballads, a difficult genre to execute, but Whisky Legs delivers.
