Dust Rhinos Day After the Night Before Reviews
Straight from Winnipeg Canada…. here comes the Dust Rhinos with yet another Celtic Roots Rock majestic of a release with “The Day After The Night Before”. The song writing is sharp, witty, and humorous… the musicians are masters of their craft… and the baritone pipes of Blair McEvoy make you want to get up out of your seat and start singing along while swing your pints from side to side.
Tracks of interest: “The Day After The Night Before”, “Sally Brown”, “Drinking Like A Fiddler”, “St Peter of the Pub”, “Just Can’t Drink Anymore”, and…. hell…. the whole damn disc.
If you enjoy the sounds of Barleyjuice, Great Big Sea, and other great Celtic Rock bands that we play on Paddy Rock… then you will need to buy this disc.
Paddy Rock Radio
This CD has all the Celtic rock energy you need to go all night long feeling good about life. It has the push and raucous style of punk music without the anarchy–a really great combination! The five-piece band from Canada is no new kid on the block and it shows here in their tight stylings and unbounded energy. Somehow they still manage to show off their considerable talent on the instruments while barreling down the road full-steam with song after song. Funny without being slapstick silly, these guys know how to bring just the right touch to each song they craft.
Don’t miss songs like track 4, “Sally Brown” and track 11, “Step It Out Mary” which help show that the band is as versatile as they are talented. If you are looking for a CD that you can get excited about, this would be one that I would recommend checking out. The right blend of fun, skill, music and energy, Dust Rhinos are immensely listenable. I look forward to the next one–and even if it was just more of the same–I’d be satisfied.
