The Hobbit House Collective Double 7” (Fruits de mer Records winkle45)

Doing a cover of Led Zeppelin is always a bold and daring mood but some bands manage to do ok. Crystal Jacqueline take on Battle of Evermore and it is pretty stripped down to just mandolin, vocals and percussion to start and then a bit later some keyboards and then the band kicks in. I really like the way the vocals are very centred and then they split the harmony vocal into the sides. Very effective…  Instead of a guitar solo they have violin jam! Enjoyed this a lot…. Honey Pot take on Ramble On, also in a quite unique version.  The addition of the synth and some longer delays on some of the vocal parts and the way they slow it down. Love the ethnic style drumming once the main bridge kicks in… Super good.   

 The other 7” features Icarus Peel´s Acid Reign doing a take of the Chain by Fleetwood Mac in a very interesting and jammed out version.  The final track by the Locker Room Cowboys appears to be an Icarus Peel track!  It is an uptempo guitar driven track with a bit of a funky rhythm and some dashes of organ here and there!  Cool stuff.
