CD Reveiw: "Dirty Damn Tricks"
When we found out that L.A. Maybe was from our neck of the woods made it even more exciting to do the CD review. As you read their bio, you find out that lead singer Alvi Robinson auditioned for the legendary band AC/DC, when you listen to the first song on the CD “Mr. Danger.” It becomes very apparent why the entire song has AC/DC written all over it. As you get to the next song “Sucker Punch” they start to remind me of another southern hard-hitting rock and roll band named Jackyl, if you follow us you should know we are great friends with them.
You can unquestionably here a mix of multiple influences in their song writing. A little southern style in the guitar riffs. These two songs “Take Me Away” and “Fake” I hear some Aerosmith and I can definitely make out the big late 80’s influences.
Each track on the CD all has their own style and are written very well. If you put on the album Dirty Damn Trick, try to listen to them objectively and not compare them to AC/DC or Jackyl but as a new up and coming rock and roll band. I think they will put their own stamp on it.
Now that we know that L.A. Maybe performs around the Carolinas, Charlotte Rock Review will go catch one of their shows and we will make sure to let everyone know how they do.
