Dewolff - IV
Dewolff are a young (very young - check their videos on youtube and feel very old) trio on guitar/keyboards/drums with the guitarist contributing the lead vocals. The 1st half is all short songs; the longest track is under 6 minutes. The second half of the CD is a 'epic composition' (and adds more Hammond and Mellotron in an appropriate 'epic' way), but it's still divided into 7 shorter sections and the entire 11 song disc clocks in at 43', so it's always moving on from strength to strength. The songs are primarily bluesy, but also touched by early UK proto-progressive stylings. As Ken Golden astutely said, think of a combination of The Nice crossed with Taste or Cream or early Fleetwood Mac.
