4/5
Joyous Wolf is the new sensation in electric big sound, bursting with robust energy and bluesy juice. Here we have four young Californians, including singer Nick Reese and drumer Robert Sodaro, met at school. Four guys whose friendship is cemented by their love of Rock with a big R, the one that smells (a little) under their arms, that makes boys want to drink beers and girls want to sway in front of a singer stirring and sexy. 

The fairy godmother Atlantic via Roadrunner leaned over their playground, smelling like a hen with golden eggs. Rightly so: everything is (already) there in these kids: the communicative strength, the compounds forged in the purest steel, the studied look but not too much, the spontaneity. And talent. Especially the talent, to write instant hymns and shine each in his own role, as in the great era of the 70s, to which Joyous Wolf naturally refers. Reese is a Robert Plant or David Coverdale ('Undesired') and the rhythmic puts on the thick clothes of a "Mountain" ('Mother Rebel'). But, with their vintage sound without being dusty, the Americans are careful to pour their antediluvian rock into a powerful mold. 

EP, however, almost half an hour long, "Place In Time" is their business card. Seven titles fill it. Prisoner of a heavy base, "Had Enough" starts the listening, managing to get the amateur hooked in a little over three minutes where the high-pitched vocals compete with a guitar dipped in the blues. Slower are 'Said Too Much' and the eponymous track, both formidable and sabred by Blake Allard's fiery six-stringed, generous in wah-wah effects. 'Quiet Heart', in turn overwhelming and sweet, and the ballad 'Feel The Low' offer the singer the opportunity to display his prowess and flexibility, as comfortable as he is in tenderness and in brute and bulletproof strength. As for the already mentioned "Mother Rebel" and "Undesired", the former has southern roots, the latter shines with a bluesy and racy glow, combining fire timbre, guitaristic projections and furry rhythmic. 

With this impeccable test run, setting for a rock'n' roll that is both robust and soft, Joyous Wolf should soon be making a name for itself.

Certes c'est bien fait mais je trouve que le groupe n'apporte pas grand chose au genre... J'ai l'impression d'avoir déjà entendu ça des dizaines de fois...
