Editorial Reviews

" Australian duo BLACK CAB is singer and producer Andrew Coates and guitarist James Lee. Black Cab's sound is a heady brew of raw guitars, early'70's style drums, plus eerie electronic and industrial audio treatments inspired by late '60's and early '70's Americana. Their 2004 debut album, 'Altamont Diary' was released to great critical acclaim in Australia, UK and Europe. Their second album, 'Jesus East', moves the bands' sound forward via pulsing '70's Germanic drum grooves, multi-layered guitar loops and subtle eastern sounds. Jesus East evokes ghosts of the Velvet Underground, Can, Neu and coolest Beatle, George Harrison's fascination with eastern sounds. The new album also features some great guest musicians including members of Even, High Pass Filter, Registered Nurse, Underground Lovers and a spoken word by Sam Cutler who road managed the Rolling Stones during the Altamont period.

Firstly, if you haven't heard Black Cab's first album, 'Altamont Diary', I recommend that be the starting point in approaching the music of this band. Maybe. But only because that album is so startlingly unique and brilliant.
Nevertheless, this is an album of quality music with plenty of highlights that show this band is not afraid to move away from a tried and successful formula to create new things and explore new space.
The thread of the Altamont concept is kept alive in the track 'Valiant' which has Sam Cutler, one of the organizers of Altamont and Road manager of several huge bands of the era, making a little speech over some atmospheric backing from Black Cab.
The opening track, and indeed the album, has a 'kraut rock' feel to it, but also a sprinkling of the Eastern essence of some of their previous work, including subtle Sitar weaved throughout.
The slide guitar work, all of the guitar work, is very impressive, and the musicianship is high calbre stuff. The drums are big and soaked in reverb, in keeping with the overall production of the album.
I think this is an album that will grow on you with repeated listening, be warm and inviting to those familiar with 'Altamont Diary' and I'm sure the journey is not over.

I stumbled across this when listening on Pandora. It's sad that this band didn't seem to make it. I think the song 'Hearts on Fire' is one of the better songs I heard in a long while. Give this folks a listen, maybe they'll come back from the dead...
