CD Review: Discover New Music From Indie-Rock Bands The Floating Bridges And The Century Thief

From the shores of Queensland, Australia comes the latest release from reggae/funk rockers The Floating Bridges entitled "Creatures Of Leisure." The inspiration is plastered all over this new release as Bob Marley-type grooves and Red Hot Chili Peppers' attitude are the basis for many of tracks on this new album. The rock quintet begins with the RHCP blueprint of "Breathe" as The Floating Bridges draw you in with the up-beat funk/rock that will bring you to your feet with its rhythm. They add a heavier rock vibe to the reggae underlining of "Dreamcatcher" and "Get It On," before the originality of "Eloquence" shows that The Floating Bridges have more to offer. They close the album with a return to the island vibe of "Ball Of Fire" and the exciting up-tempo rocker "Home." The Floating Bridges just wrapped up their summer U.K. tour and will be heading home for a festival appearance at the Mitchell Creak Rock N Blues Fest.

Canadian indie-folk/rock band The Century Thief will be releasing their full-length debut album "Reverie" on September 10th. The focus of the songs, according to the band, deals with "the boredom and comfort of unhealthy situations, poisonous loves, cruel social structures, doubt and dead end routines." The new thirteen song release begins with the gentle build up of "Time Goes," a lovely mixture of Americana, roots and folk pop music that easily draws you in to their sound. They kick the tempo up with the horns of "Stick Stone" and lend a country hand to "Memo" as The Century Thief show a little diversity in their music. They incorporate a New Orleans jazz flair in "Centre Street" as the band's sound continues to grow with the infectious rhythm of "House On Fire."
