The Auctioneers
The Auctioneers
(self-released)
www.theauctioneersmusic.com


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 of Motorhead.

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.
