"Fan of muttonchops and flowered shirts Mama's Gun brings the 70's back to life with its bluesy rock and stoner."
NUNO777 - 04.12.2019 -
When a band is related to the Klonosphere team, it is often a guarantee of quality. The amateur scrutinizing all the releases of this label could not let go of the one of the group Mama's Gun which offers its first eponymous album.

The revival of the 70s is not new and alongside progressive rock, which has made it a whole subgenre, the number of musical styles referring to it has multiplied. There is nothing to be criticized in the process as long as the approach remains honest and the result does not turn into caricature. Mama's Gun is part of this approach by appropriating a whole musical universe that still fascinates today and by giving its own interpretation. In the first places of the Mama's Gun pantheon are Black Sabbath, which would have inspired the heaviness of riffs and rhythms, Led Zeppellin and Jimi Hendrix the psychedelic and bluesy tonalities. On this architecture are built the compositions of Mama's Gun with a strong dose of fuzz on the guitar, a snoring bass and a pachydermic drum set. There are some standards at the beginning like the reptilian and bluesy 'Shield And Shelter' and the stoner 'Both Sides Of Your Mind' for a first contact and to lay the foundations on which to develop more audacity later on.

By its ambiences and density the music of the trio has the ability to make listeners head spin, which is why your servant had strange hallucinations during the listening: a Steven Wilson drooling his saturations on the riff of "Itchcock", the chorus of "Electrical Redeemer" laid by Gnö's jolly fellows or a really manly Perry Farrell on "Dead Legends". Mama's Gun gets softer by tackling the acoustic "Righteous Hand" for a zeppelinian and downright groovy desert rock on the strong and unbridled "Greed". And when Mama's Gun lets go, it gives "Father Fever" whose rhythmic and sound originalities make us say that the group has resources to exploit. This was soon to materialize very clearly on the occasion of the Dantean "Sun Haters Moon Lovers", a piece with a drawer that ends in apotheosis in a jubilant jam spirit. In addition to its penchant for musical tradition, Mama's Gun's writing brings up to date good morals in terms of charm and seduction, the compositions do not become tame easily and the melodies are nuanced enough to be appreciated in the long term.

The trio, led by three talented musicians, singer-drummer (a rarity!) Théo Jude and guitarists Louis Schneider and Guillaume Barrou, hits hard for his first album, which is more than just a tribute to an era that many revere. It is a true signature that emerges from this impeccable "Mama's Gun" from beginning to end.
