You may know Andrew Stockdale as the leader, writer, and sole identifiable member of the Australian rock band Wolfmother who’s hit “Woman” catapulted them onto the scene. Andrew was also the vocalist on guitarist Slash’s first solo single “By The Sword”. With the release of his new solo album Andrew continues to impress with his mix of modern rock and that classic 70’s sound.
The album is entitled Keep Moving, its 16 songs of pure rock n’ roll in its truest form. 16 songs is a great buy, that’s alot of entertainment for your dollar. Wolfmother established Andrew as a singer with an outrageous range, capable of doing almost in-human things, this solo endeavor establishes Andrew as a great song writer. His influences are all on display in grand form on this album, from the Zeppelin-esque rhythms and the Plant screams, to almost Dylan like lyrics and delivery on some songs, along with a few ZZ Top inspired grooves. My favorite thing about this disc is the array of songs, and just how strong they all are.
This week we debut “Long Way To Go” on the Noize Faktory right in hour 1, and I have attached the link to the video for the song. This one is one of my two albums of the week.
Andrew is on tour right now, so if he is coming through a club in your area, get out and support him, he is in the US starting this week.
