Blindboss is a one-man band by multi-instrumentalist Max Histrionic hailing from California and delivering very dynamic sound, who is about to launch a new album “Our Tribe” on February 23. This is a very vivacious album with many joyful elements in it. It is one of those “morning coffee” albums. It knows the ways of how to discharge you and bring you real joy with its energetic tunes.
“Our Tribe” includes twelve songs. All the way from the opening “Roman Coke” down to the closing “Shade Struck,” “Our Tribe” never stops being heady. Every song on the album is constructed in the same way. Placing this record under a genre is a double-edged sword, but the music is most of time alternative / punk rock with progressive and classic rock influences. And since we are talking about influences, the music of Blindboss recalls likes such A Perfect Circle, Soundgarden, Tool. But there is more than that. Histrionic transcends into the territory of the ‘70s vintage rock. So it can be said “Our Tribe” is a great harvest of modern and classic.
Overall, Blindboss’ “Our Tribe” is a very effective, powerful and tasty album comprised of great vocals arrangements, intricate guitar work and strong structure. It goes to the category of “must listen to” albums released in 2018.
