Amassing a fusion of psychedelic rock, funky organ-drenched soul,
and guitar-torched blues, The Auctioneers have a recipe that
revives classic rock's roots in the vane of such living legends as
Deep Purple and Yes. The music on their 4-track self-titled
EP makes the band seem like they came from an era which is long gone
but highly revered. The gravely riffs of guitarist Erik Broberg
produce a power rock sear that is revved up by the robust throbbing
of drummer Donovan Pyle and bassist Chris Kapica as
the dark toned moans of organist Ryan Alexander Gregg encircle
Sollis' gritty vocal timbres.
The chunky drum thrusts of "Young Man's Blues" are covered
in reverberating guitar flurries, while the growling riffs of "The
Nothing" have a vintage rock ring that resembles T. Rex.
The silky acoustics of "Back Of The Bus" exude a tin-pan
alley thumping as the rollicking grooves build up from a cozy country
folk swagger to a rootsy rock blaze. The EP closes with thundering
riffs of "Straight On" clamped in motorcycle roars reflective
The Auctioneers have a genuine classic rock sound that at times
makes their music seem like it comes from another era. The tracks
are well-built and firmly fortified in power rock trimmings which
keep the album feeling intense and genuine to rock 'n' roll's roots.
