I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Let's Do This Thing, from Kathy & The Kilowatts and it's a mix of rock and roll, country and blues with a taste of Chrissy Hines. Opening with title track, Let's Do This Thing, Kathy establishes a firm footing in rock with Bill Monster Jones on guitar, Dylan Cavaliere on bass and Richard Ross on drums. With a dose of blues thrown in on Call Me Mrs. Blues, Kathy shows a strong bluesy vocal flair with Jeff Botta on bass and Nina Singh on drums and Jones on guitar. Talking Out My Head has a cool Jimmy Reed feel and Kathy's somewhat country vocal styling gives it a rural Americana sound. Read 'Em and Weep has a low slung blues feel with nice guitar work and backing vocals by Jones. With it's solid guitar riff, One Lie Leads To Another, has a solid hook, with clean guitar phrasing and some of the best vocals on the release. Easy acoustic ballad, I Want To, is one of my favorite tracks on the release with quiet vocals and subdued acoustic backing. With a modified Bo Diddley beat, Exception to the Rule is another of my favorites on the release showing a different level of cool. Bluesy ballad, These Lonely Hours could easily get play on blues or country stations with solid melody and vocals. Wrapping the release is high energy, Loveaholic, a country rocker that has a lot of Johnny Cash style. Thumping bass and Les Paul like guitar riffs make this track and excellent closer for this solid release.
