Everybody knows Patrick Boissel's fondness for everything HEAVY BLUES related, so it's not a big surprise the band's debut album is released on Alive Naturalsound. This is exactly where this band belongs. And the record label aptly points out that SULFUR CITY is the first female-fronted band on Alive!
But what a band: a very tight rhythm section that keeps on pulsating all through the 11 original tracks, a keyboard player whose groovy organ loops sometimes bring to mind the late 60's Brian Auger, a guitar player and co-leader of the band who's an expert in heavy riffing.
Sulfur City refers to band's home town. A mining community where sulfur has been pumping into the air since 1928. It made the landscape black, dirty and the air thick and heavy. It's something Lori and the guys can relate to and has influenced the music they write. You can feel that this band is for real and that they mean every word they write.
“Talking Loud” was recorded at the infamous Gas Station Recording studio by Dale Morningstar (Cowboy Junkies, Neko Case) : the result is a fantastic heavy blues album with a strong political view. Highly recommended if you don't wanna die a moron.
