Nick Frater and Phil Thornalley

Nick Frater “Aerodrome Motel”

Crydon, UK resident Nick Frater follows up his blockbuster Earworms album with a a lot lighter pop contact on Aerodrome Motel. Opening with the jaunty “The Pleasure is Mine,” it has a candy melody that jogs my memory of Glenn Tilbrook (Squeeze) with its easy-going hook. An influence pop crunch comes from “Love Heist” because it pulls out each lyrical police cliche “Calling all vehicles there’s a love heist taking place to me!” However this single is a good earworm with a worthy mixture of Elvis Costello-styled organ and guitar punch.

Frater has given us a refrain of upward scales on the Anglophilic “Aerodrome Motel” and full of life horns on “Tough & Tumble” however not the whole lot sticks. The lovelorn “No Exhausting Emotions” is lacking the dramatic energy wanted in a refrain, and “Dancing With A Gertrude” seems like an previous Nineteen Eighties sitcom theme. Regardless of the misfires, there are many tunes to take pleasure in, together with Beatle-adjacent “Pricey Fashionable Instances.” Extremely Advisable.

Phil Thornalley

Phil Thornalley “Now That I Have Your Consideration”

Phil Thornalley has moved past his Astral Drive initiatives and turned himself right into a one-man Touring Wilburys. “Perhaps we should always have referred to as it the Touring Phil-burys,” Thornalley jokes, “however I loved the sooner ELO data, and the best way they married a crummy beat combo with the grandeur of a full orchestra – it was over-the-top however infectiously musical..”

Taking musical cues from Jeff Lynne (Electrical Mild Orchestra), Phil is clearly having enjoyable with the opener “Heaven in a Hash Pipe” with its blues riffs and orchestral prospers. However Phil’s vocal is far nearer to Tom Petty, particularly on the follow-up “Hell Bent on Compromise,” with its strat guitar and layered harmonies. It comes collectively completely on “Quick Automotive” with a killer hook within the refrain, assured to have you ever singing in a “visitors ja-a-a-am.” The tune ideas are easy, and succeed with the catchy “Excessive on Your Provide” and “Stand By Love” as they’re additionally simple to sing alongside to. Whereas a number of tunes veer over into fan service an excessive amount of, you’ll be having an excessive amount of enjoyable to note while you hear the glam rock beat of “Strong Gold Sunshine.” Extremely Advisable.
