A Tasty Sound-Sandwich

No Kind of Rider @ Backspace 10/29/10

The major element in a great band is a good singer, while the rest of a band matters greatly, with out a great singer a band has nothing. No Kind of Rider doesn’t just have a good singer, Sam is a fantastic singer, the harmonies with Jeremy on Friday were superb. The greatness does not stop with the singing though. Wes has a thick bass tone that creates a tasty sound-sandwich with Jon’s drum beats while Jeremy adds layers of spacey guitar. Last but not least, Joe’s keys fill out the sound nicely and are not over used they are  kind of like the sprinkles on a delicious cake.  You can purchase their EP The Black Swan or their Single Danger at www.nokindofrider.com or you can get a copy at their next show on Tuesday December 2nd at The Doug Fir. Check out my two favorite No Kind of Rider songs: “Take the Scenic Route” and “Clear Coat”.
