Thanks @ for the sweet review! @ (@) ・・・
Dave Wright & the Midnight Electric, as many of my followers know, are a Melbourne based rock band. Back on the 01st December 2016 they gathered at SAE Studios, South Melbourne, along with friends and family and performed their second album titled, ‘HWY’ in its entirety, from head to tail. The first half of the show and subsequent CD showcases ‘HWY’,. The second half of the show comprised an hour of tracks from, amongst other recordings, their first album, titled, ‘The Lucky Country’. What you see here is a recording of that wonderfull night.
Titled, ‘HWY Soundstage Show’, the live recording captures in essence what this band is all about-that being, big wide-screen rock n roll music. There are many highlights that warrant a listen. Wide guitar rifts in Rain & the title track, HWY, are better than solid. The lyrics, layering of the songs, and chord structures are almost as good as you’ll experience.
If you like bands like, Ryan Adams, Gaslight Anthem, Tom Petty, Weddings Parties Anything, &, Hunters & Collectors, you’ll get a feel for the band. Listening to this solidly produced recording you get the feeling that the band belongs alongside many of the afore mentioned bands. Melbourne’s music-skyline is literally oozing musical talent, & this recording reconfirms that that these guys are are as good as you’ll hear around. Have a listen, follow @ & make up your own mind.
@ play their annual Christmas show on December 15th at the Grandview Hotel, Fairfield, Melbourne, where this CD and DVD from that epic night a couple of years ago will be available. Conversely both the CD and DVD are available from
www.davewrightandthemidnightelectric.com from Dec 17th on 2CD or DVD.
