MonkeyJunk: All Frequencies Review

Just like a well-oiled machine, MonkeyJunk get going and offer up another unyielding display of soulful blues rock robustness in their latest album All Frequencies. The tenacious trio are gifted with an arsenal of instrumental ability. From baritone guitars to harmonicas, each track has something special.

The record flies off with a punchy opener. “You Make A Mess” has the upbeat vigour that puts the boogie back into the blues. The hooky chorus and rip-roaring rhythm puts this track in the album’s limelight. The following tune “Right From Wrong,” shifts the feel, but keeps the verve alive. It is a great track to bare witness to some sweet harmonica skills.

Many of the other songs tend not to match up to the blues infused caper belonging to the first few tracks. Still, they are definitely worth a listen. “Once Had Wings” has a balled sense to it and the final track “Swank,” is an all out funky jam with some suave organ melodies.

MonkeyJunk have the instruments, the rhythm and the vivacity. All Frequencies should be added to the list of noteworthy blues rock albums of the year.
