My Face Has Been Melted by Earl Greyhound
Earl Greyhound, proponents of melting faces and rocking, closed out Sunday on the Marina River stage. Kamara Thomas, Matt Whyte, and Ricc Sheridan are Earl Greyhound, this sonically driven, fast-paced, “colossal rock band” hails from the streets of Brooklyn.
Earl Greyhound’s appearance in Philadelphia marked the final show on a tour supporting their sophomore album “Suspicious Package.” Kamara remarked, “the suspicious part of the package is that the album will definitely blow up if played too soft.” After hearing Earl Greyhound live, I understand what she means. These guys really bring the rock.
Drawing from influences like Soundgarden, The Mars Volta, Led Zeppelin and Dinsoaur Jr., you can begin to image what type of music these three like to play. Hard, fast, and loud as possible. If it wasn’t as hot as it was on Sunday, I think Earl Greyhound would have continued melting faces until the festival crews made him stop. Earl Greyhound offers up a dose of rock for the crowd that won’t be forgotten.
Europe best be ready. When October rolls around Earl Greyhound will be taking their rock across the pond to Europe. Being their first time in Europe, I can bet you Earl Greyhound will be pushing to leave a lasting first impression with a heavy dose of rock. I hope the Europeans head Kamara’s advice and don’t play Suspicious Package too soft or we may have an international crisis on our hands.
Rock on and be sure to pick up Earl Greyhound’s newest release “Suspicious Package.” Just remember to turn it up!
