CD Review: There Are "27 Ways" To Listen To Desert Noises

From Utah comes the SQE Music label debut album from Desert Noises entitled "27 Ways." The band consists of four former Mormons that have distanced themselves from that religion, hoping in a van and honing their skills on the road. Critics began taking notice of their performance at last year's Austin City Limits Festival and are now ready to tackle their latest full-length album.

The twelve song release begins with the classic, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers-type rock of "Grandma Looks." Desert Noises continue to knock on the door of mainstream rock with "Out Of My Head" and draw influence from the south on the swampy blues of "Run Through The Woods." They slow down for the gallop of "Follow You Out" which allows their voices and music to flourish. Their guitars get aggressive on the hard rock jaunt of "Elephant's Bed," before closing with the pinnacle of "Angel" and the acoustic backwoods appeal of "Dime In My Pocket."
