RECORD EXCHANGE STAFF PICK: JOY ON BAND OF SKULLS

RX marketing/promotions guru Joy Hart selected Band of SkullsBaby Darling Doll Face Honey as her Staff Pick of the Week. Word up:

If you dig raw, layered, blues rock with lofty atmospheric vocals and a mix of influences from Led Zeppelin, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Kings of Leon, Heartless Bastards, Black Keys and even more awesomeness, then do yourself a favor and check out Band of Skulls. Baby Darling Doll Face Honey is the promising debut from this band with more than one talented singer and songwriter. The vocals drive the record over booze-drenched fuzzed-out guitar riffs.

The UK trio consists of Russell Marsden, Emma Richardson, and Matthew Haywar. Admittedly, the band was a only together for about a year before releasing Baby Darling Doll Face Honey. Some might say that the record lacks the cohesiveness that only comes with time. What I find are 12 solid-driving rock tunes that stand alone and make a perfect package. I dare you not to feel the groove.

Baby Darling Doll Face Honey is solidly acquiring priority placement in my playlist, and I’m scanning tour routing regularly for Band of Skulls to roll through the great Northwest. This live show is going on my shortlist of must-sees!
