Glide Review - Rough Seven - Give Up Your Dreams

Hey there peoples, I got a new review up on Glide.

Read it right C'here!!!

It is of one of my favorite new groups, Rough Seven or R Scully's Rough 7,depending on what day of the week this is...

Whatever they call themselves...I will call them awesome. 

I haven't been able to get the disk out of my ears since I got it, while there are a couple of tracks I am not sold on, the ones I like I REALLY like. 

Tracks like "St. Anthony", "Meltdown", and "The Good Out Weigh's The Bad" are really something to behold.  The style is basically rock and roll with flairs of gospel, ballads, heartache and joy mixed in...NOLA modern day music.  Check out this myspace version of Meltdown Live at Saturn Bar...Sick!

I didn't talk about it much in the review, but backing up Scully in the group are some real players.  Rob Cambre on guitar kills it multiple times over and the low end of CJ Floyd and Mike Anderpoint provide rock solid backing.  Ratty Scurvics plays both organs and key boards while Erika Lewis and Meschiya Lake provide the glorious soul singing back-ups that elevate the album above others.

Basically it is a whose who of musicians from the big easy that I think are dope as all hell. It would make sense that the great talent down there would play with each other as the great musicians from NOLA have been doing since the city was founded.  Concerning the back up ladies, I have already posted some Meschiya Lake in the Loose Marbles Interview, but below I got some sweet Erika Lewis Crooning (OK and one more Meschiya) to go along with the a couple of Rough Seven videos.

If you are lucky enough to live in NOLA go check them out live, hopefully we can get them up to NYC ASAP, as it would be a rip roaring blast to catch them in this town.  I also hope to do some more work with them in the near future on this site, so stay tuned.

Until then grab the album if you can find it and Enjoy.
