First we brought you a track, then we brought you a review, and today, we’re bringing you the album to stream in its entirety, but who am I talking about? That’ll be Wedge of course as the Berlin based power trio release their new album Like No Tomorrow err, tomorrow, 15th January via the always reliable Heavy Psych Sounds.
Containing eight feel good tracks of rock ‘n’ boogie, Reza commented in his review about the opening track Computer ‘I’m struck from the off by the delicious Deep Purple flavours and the Hammond organ evoking the spirit of the late Jon Lord…’ and that Playing A Role ‘is laden with hooks and more fun than you can shake a stick at…’.
Now sit back, press play and get lost for forty minutes in the wonderful world of Wedge…
More On Wedge & ‘Like No Tomorrow’
Wedge‘s new release Like No Tomorrow makes for an unholy trinity of Wedge albums in the Heavy Psych Sounds Records back catalogue. The Berlin-based power trio once more is driving their musical Wedge in between many different genres: Garage rock turns progressive while psychedelic guitar lines are tripping over hard rocking riffs.
Does this work together? Hell yes! For fans of Deep Purple, MC5, Led Zeppelin or Humble Pie this album is a sure shot. You like fuzz guitars? Hammond organ and vocals trough a swirling Leslie cabinet? More cowbell? You got it. But unlike our beloved rock records from around 1971, which we’ve heard a hundred times before Like No Tomorrow has one huge advantage: It’s brand new and the 8 tracks, ranging from 3:00 to 9:00 minutes, deliver a fresh, unspent and unmistakably unique taste to the rock’n’roll menu.
In the tradition of bands like The Raconteurs, The Hellacopters, Graveyard or Wolfmother, Wedge are building on that vintage vibe we all know and love but evolve their very own thing and are able to connect it directly to here and now. Also lyrically the tunes are picking up on our zeitgeist, dealing with topics like digitalisation, mass migration and current social issues among others.
So it’s no coincidence that the record’s title is a direct hint at our crazy times, in which it feels like the end of the world might be lurking just around the very next corner. But rather than being pessimistic about it, Wedge want to convey a positive message…
‘When it feels like there might be no tomorrow, just love and live Like No Tomorrow’.
