Bodies Of Water – A Certain Feeling

July 23, 2008

Had Los Angeles based band Bodies Of Water just served up more of the same grandly scaled, gospel inflected and Americana inspired music found on their 2007 full length debut, I would have been more than satisfied. Happily, however, they’ve chosen to expand their sound with some punk and New Wave style guitar riffs, some Ennio Morricone influences, a lot of prog rock and even a bit of heavy metal by way of Black Sabbath on “Darling, Be Here.” The singing and playing is as passionate and thrilling as it was on their debut, though some of the big choruses have been dialed down a bit, but only a bit. I really love this band’s music, and I hope you’ll check them out. Standout cuts: “Gold, Tan, Peach and Grey,” “Under The Pines,” “Darling, Be Here” and “If I Were A Bell.”
