Quill, The: Tiger Blood

At the risk of being too self-referential i note that when I reviewed the previous Quill album I said these two things, namely that the album was, "a bit of a groove-based winner," and, "There are times when we all need something with a bit of a groove in our lives and next time I require one I'll be reaching for Full Circle.". I'm pleased to report that both these things remain true of The Quill. The band clearly hasn't spent the last two years delving into electro pop of other popular genres de jour. Nope, these boys like it in a 1970s style and there's much to recommend within the grooves of Tiger Blood.

There's touches of Stoner Rock and Southern Rock on offer and occasionally The Quill venture into much heavier Clutch style territory although on tracks such as "Purgatory Hill" a certain degree of poppiness emerges. Arguably the strongest part of the album is the quiet "Land of Gold and Honey" combining with the much heavier "Darkest Moon". If anything this shows that The Quill aren't just content to pummel the listener with stoner vibes, there's much more to them than that.
