Sweden - Full Moon 214 - 02/15/14
Self-released / Eastwick
Jens Ganman has more than a few skills, being a radio presenter and novelist as well as playing in a band. Eastwick's rootsy sound on
their second album is very accomplished.
Opener "Trash" is catchy despite some very caustic lyrics. Peter Roos' fiddle adds a nice touch. "Up For The Ride" has a defiant message
of endurance to go with its tough melody and resilient vocal. "Closer" is a touching love song handled well by the band, playing energetically
as ever. "Your Decision" has a soft touch, but the words are sharp and acute. It's roots music with a strong undercurrent of an independent
spirit. It's a fine album.
