Daily Bandcamp Album; The Other Side Of The End by Niche
The album cover looked odd to me but I liked the style. Still though, I was having my doubts about the album. You know the saying "Never judge a book by its cover?" Well that saying couldn't be any truer. While the first 10 seconds or so of the album had me scratching my head, all that any any other fear of the unknown left me. What can I say about the album? Well, hammond organ. I'm a sucker for it when it's done right. The keys fill in perfectly with Niche's southern and classic rock mix. There's a bunch of 70's hard rock influence sprinkled here too. After one full listen I can honestly say that this is one of the surprise hits of 2013 for me. The fact that it's on vinyl as well is a huge bonus for me.
