Sistrionix - ISLAND
FILTER Grade: 76%
By Evan Wallis on October 9, 2013
This LA-based female duo comes barreling out of the gates with a debut album full of seething guitar riffs and roaring drums. It’s 11 songs of nonstop, downright raunchy blues with lyrics that ooze malcontent and feminism. Sure, it’s not breaking any new ground, but once you hear the tambourine-backed singing tacked onto the last track, you realize these girls have a hell of a lot of soul, something a lot of today’s blues music lacks.
