French review for new release Rivherside

nice review for new release Rivherside in Blues Again (France):

L’Auvergnat Rivherside, que l’état civil donne pour « Renaud Villet », sort un deuxième album, d’abord en digital. Black and Tan doit le glisser dans son catalogue à l’automne prochain. Longue de douze plages, l’œuvre se déplie en trois mouvements : une sorte de hill country rockabilly trépidante, écho sur le chant et, parfois, ponctuations de beatbox qui fomentent, de façon très convaincante, la rencontre des pôles ; une sorte d’americana boogie acoustique, brisée, dans le titre ‘MuddyWaters’, par un break de hip-hop au débit ravageur ; et quelques titres incantatoires, presque planants, dont un morceau de bravoure de plus de sept minutes intitulé : ‘Come Over Here’. Dans tous les cas, Rivherside montre un goût pour le tintamarre organisé, que la guitare soit sèche ou électrifiée, et une finesse de dandy dans l’exécution et le développement des chansons. Plus deux parenthèses instrumentales : ‘Albert Dre Junior’, beaux dégagements de soliste sur un beat funky-blues, et ‘Fading Memory’ qui termine l’album sur une rêverie mélancolique diaphane. Onze compos et une reprise de RL Burnside, ‘Skinny Woman’. Qui tient encore Burnside par les cheveux, au-dessus des limbes, sinon cette génération de blues-rockers qui, à défaut d’avoir l’histoire avec eux, ont tout le temps d’expérimenter, maintenant que le marché est tombé en lambeaux ? La frugalité et la modestie font partie de l’entraînement. Dave Crowe beatboxe, LigOne scratche, TBD rappe, Rémi Faraut et Rachel Villet battent, ça dépend des morceaux. Rivherside fait tout le reste : chant, guitares, basse, batterie et programmation. Tous les titres de cet album sont hautement recommandables, la partie rockabilly est fantastique.

Black and Tan will release a new Rivherside album

In a few weeks we will release

B&T 956 – Rivherside – Electraw Blues Album

It will be the first full album of this French electro blues pioneer and here you can listen to a few samples and get an idea about the music.

After playing for many years in different blues bands, Renaud Villet, a singer / guitarist / producer based in Clermont-Ferrand, France, launched his solo career in 2012 under the name Rivherside. His first album, “Something on My Mind,” was strongly blues / roots orientated.  It got great reviews and as a result Rivherside did more than 80 concerts as a one-man-band. In 2014 he decided to broaden his horizon and began to mix Blues with Electro and Hip-Hop sounds, releasing the self-produced, 4-track “Electraw Blues EP.” Rivherside also began performing live in this electro configuration, playing samples and using Ableton Live software. In 2015 he collaborated with rapper TDB and together they released the “Inner Voices” EP in early 2016 . And now, he’s back with a new 12-track album. The release date is set for June 13, 2016 and the album will be available at all download and streaming platforms.

Biography

After playing for many years in different blues bands, Renaud Villet, a singer/guitarist/producer based in Clermont-Ferrand, France, launched his solo career in 2012 under the name Rivherside. His first album, “Something on My Mind,” with a strong Blues/Roots orientation, was released in 2013 on Keffren Records. Acclaimed by music critics, it allowed Rivherside to perform more than 80 concerts as a One Man Band accompanied by a Farmer Footdrum.

In 2014 he decided to broaden his horizons and began to mix Blues with Electro and Hip-Hop sounds, releasing the self-produced, 4-track “Electraw Blues EP.” Rivherside began to perform live in an electro configuration, playing samples using Ableton Live software.

In 2015 he also collaborated with rapper TDB and along with him he released the “Inner Voices” EP in early 2016 on the new electro label Sticks and Stones Records. Now, he’s back with a new 12-track album; the long-awaited Electraw Blues Album. All part of Rivherside’s quest to push the envelope of the Blues universe…

Biography

Crunchy guitar and driving rhythms abound, this is music for driving or getting down and dirty… or both at the same time! Indie-Blues-Rock duo King Pug was a project started by hyperactive English guitarist, singer, producer and songwriter Dave Wilkinson as an outlet for a back catalogue of songs that didn’t seem to fit with his other various musical incarnations. Heavily based in the blues with driving rhythms provided by fellow country man Caspar St. Charles.

King Pug could be compared to The Black Keys and The White Stripes due to their duo format… if you were lazy! But with a British touch notable in Wilkinson’s voice and writing, and a long, varied career as session musicians, the duo certainly add their own flavour to the mix, enough to carve them their own niche in the “power duo” scene.

Their debut E.P. “Borneo Mint Shave” was written, produced, mixed and mastered by Wilkinson in his own “D.I.Y.” studio and within one week of it’s release on Bandcamp they were signed to Black and Tan Records in The Netherlands. And these dogs are fast !!!! just two months after the release of their debut they strike agian with “Water Pressure” – a three track E.P. Harder hitting, grittier and groovier than ever, this is Rock music you can dance to, Blues music that won’t give you the blues!
