of March | Bulletproof Heart
radio bobo-k review
am the first one to admit that I am pretty hard on unsigned bands and independent
CD releases. I cannot overlook bad production and worse songwriting. It is with
great pleasure, Blunterettes, that I am able to introduce the first independent
band whose CD has made me jump for joy, since I have taken over reviewing CDs
here at BluntReview.com!
first I received a four-song sampler CD from Suns of March, who hail from Montgomery,
Alabama. Be still my musical heart! The southern influenced hard rockers have
that proverbial "it" that we in the music biz look for. With some trepidation--worrying
that the other songs on their CD might not be as good, I requested a copy of the
full CD, "Bulletproof Heart'. The whole collection, I am happy to report
did not let me down.
rocking enough for the boys, and a tender side for the girls, vocalist Michael
Wright has a wonderfully expressive voice. The title track "Bulletproof Heart"
has a straight-ahead rock sound with great harmonies. "I Need Love"
is reminiscent of The Black Crowes during their heyday. "San Jose" showcases
fiddler Zebulon Bowles, whose wonderful technique shows an ease of hand, just
enough to color the song without running amok. "Hanna" has a bit more
country twang, with some great New Orleans-style trumpeting in the background.
keep 20 CDs in my car - the ones that I want to listen to when I go for long drives,
ones that I want to learn the lyrics so I can sing along on the highway. This
CD has made it to my car. I highly recommend that you too take a trip,
this time on the information superhighway -- to www.sunsofmarch.com
and pick up a copy of Sun of March's extraordinary 'Bulletproof Heart.'
