RUTH GOOD "Spliff EP"
(Citrus City Records)
This release is the effort of Richmond, Va. brothers, JP and Wes Parker, who join musical forces to create a surprisingly genuine rock item, that draws from a wide range of musical styles.
Much of the musical framework consists of smooth guitars with just the right amount of throaty crunch in the proper places. After a couple of well-produced 2-minute ditties, the band turns on their shine in the tracks Shooting Range, and Ice water, both drawing from but not bound by reverence to classic rock instrumentation and compositions.
There is a healthy radio polish on this record that brings all of the songs together in a cohesive experience, and ensures replay value. We look forward to a full length release.
