RISE by Mojo Radio
(Grooveyard Records)

Blues rock band, Mojo Radio from Madison, WI return with their sophomore release, ' Rise'. This album is full of raging blues that will not disappoint. Original and gritty comes to mind. It will grab your attention from the moment you press play. Mojo Radio are, Adam Zierten on vocals/harmonica, Jason Peterson on guitar, Scott Aumann on bass and Brent King on drums. The album starts of with bluesy mover, "Torn Asunder", powered by Zierten' s, harp and Peterson's locomotive super charged slide guitar. The funky soulful rocker, "Death Of Me" is up next. Talk about getting the blood pumping, this song will do the trick. Then you have the laid back swagger of "Changing Of The Tide". Things slow down a bit with "See It Through", but pick right back up with the gospel tinged soul shaker, "Darkened My Door". If you like slide guitar, harmonica/harp and Bonham influenced drum grooves then you are in for one hell of a good time! The production job is top notched and the mix is spot on. Real toe-tappin' groovin' kinda music, combined with powerhouse chords and super-charged slide guitar make ,'Rise' by Mojo Radio a real winner. A raunchy rootsy blues rock ride of your life. You will feel like you are riding the rails at every turn in the road, peelin' paint and melting rubber. Any fan of the Stones, Faces, Humble Pie and Black Crowes, will be greatly rewarded for giving this album a listen. - Highly Recommended
