Own La­bel

Al­though Bri­tish gui­tarist Robin Davey has his roots firmly planted in the blues, since he’s been in the States, his play­ing has taken on a punk- rock slant, and it’s bring­ing Well Hung Heart a lot of suc­cess. In a White Stripes man­ner, the group is stripped to the barest of es­sen­tials, with Davey sup­ply­ing both gui­tar and bass riffs, Phil Wil­son han­dling drums and the mega- dy­namic Greta Valenti tak­ing care of vo­cals and keys. This is an al­bum you sim­ply can’t ig­nore: and while the struc­ture is sim­plis­tic, the over­all ef­fect is melodic, force­ful and em­i­nently en­ter­tain­ing. Check out I Don’t Get Enough with its many mu­si­cal facets; the driv­ing qual­ity of Wasted; a lit­tle lighter re­lief on Made For Leav­ing, and the big pro­duc­tion, Sweet. The best way to en­joy the band is un­doubt­edly live, but this will get your pulse rac­ing – give it a try!
