My friend Aamir put out his annual Top Albums list late last year. I’m finally making my way through them and was so impressed by his first selection I’ve decided to share it here.
King Chiefs – Blue Sonnet (Roosevelt Row Records) – Hands down my favorite release of the year. Power, beauty, soul, fuzz…it’s all here. See my write-up on this awesome band here – http://www.gonzogeek.com/Blog/tabid/62/ID/2145/King-Chiefs.aspx
‘Blue Sonnet’ is the Phoenix-born but San Diego-based band’s second album, following 2015’s ‘Tomorrow’s Over’ (released as Chiefs). ‘Blue Sonnet’ was produced by Landmine Marathon guitarist Ryan Butler at his Arcane Digital Recording studio in Chandler, Ariz.
