Kid Harpoon – The Second EP

Blues without the blues

Following up his debut six-track EP from last October, the prolific Kid Harpoon releases a second six-track EP.

There’s an album’s worth of material there though whether it is all worthy of an album is another matter. The main song here is bluesy murder ballad, Riverside. It has a suitably ferocious guitar, howling vocals and even a psychedelic breakdown but it’s the Blues without the blues. Fathers and Sons has an epic folk-rock air but is more Tenacious D than Fairport Convention. The remaining four songs are even less interesting and at times it’s like Emo with better influences.
