Blues Pills - Blues Pills

Marvelously Medicated

With instrumental elements of early Fleetwood Mac, but a raunchier female vocal that latter FM’s Stevie Nicks, Blues Pills has been medicated on the psychedelia and rock of earlier times, mainlined through their growing up, one imagines, so that the musical blood flows quite instinctively. 

The guitar work [by 17 year old Dorian Sorriaux] is at times Peter Green-esque - echoes of The Green Manalishi clearly infused in both opening tracks High Class Woman and Ain't No Change - but Elin Larsson's vocal won't get a namecheck here, just an acknowledgement that it belts out and soars and entices as wonderfully as any other established female precursors.
