Jamroots (Jamroots)



Mornington-brewed surf blues band, Jamroots, have released their self-titled album. It’s smooth as hell and full of spunk.

From the get-go you’re swept up in a whirlwind of blues and rock. The opening track, ‘Heavy Sea’, really sets the tone. The vocals are powerful and the production is full of spirit. The intro to ‘The River’ is moody and delicate but everything changes when the chorus drops and the song explodes. The outro is almost on another level. There’s some real adventurism present here.

The guitar is so gritty on this album; you’re left wondering why they’re being traded in for a deck and an iPod. These tracks have got so much character.

It’s the perfect jam for a Friday afternoon, cruisin’ down the Nepean.
