The long awaited "Atomic Workers" new record is ready to hit the airways and your personal turn table. Fans of the band should be very pleased with this new offering from the "Workers". . .
Exploring hard rock , psychedelica , pop , prog , even backwoods Southern boogie. In short , something for everyone ! From the opening track , "Paper Planes" , with it's rolling bass line , acid rock / mod psych guitar licks , one might initially think they know where this is all going but should be pleasantly surprised at the different genres this baby sets down at.
"Golden Door" with its swap-boogie , down South , Americana vibe to the gypsy -pop , psychedelic groove ,( ala Shocking Blue ) of " Get your Head " and other explorations into darker themes. A record for true fans of music who aren't compromised by genres, musical scenes, and time periods , but who is moved by creative and original compositions. If you fall into the lader group then you are going to want to have this new "Atomic Workers" recording in your collection !
