Lipstik Indie - Light My Fuse
Did you know that the Eighties is Back with a vengeance!. Well just take a gander and a listen to L’Rocks debut CD, Law of Attraction! Actually Laura L’Rock gives you the 80 ‘s NOW!!! That is the sound that reverberates whereas 80’s rock and hair band metal rock gave you girls girls and fame and fortune and it’s all about us making a lot of bread; L’Rock actually writes almost entirely about other artists other voices and other rooms so to speak. Very few of the songs on her new CD are about her right!!!??? Wrong they are all about her take on life in the fast lane of 2011 and going. The lady is lead singer on Rock Candy group, but is on her own here.
There are at least five major hits on this CD and the top of the pop crop is Ball of Fire ostensibly about a fellow rock and roller but any listener will simply kick back the jams and realize it doesn’t matter who it’ s about it about being a star!!!!!!!!!!!!! A Rock Star and it is the best rock single classic that I have heard in many a year and I am not kidding. Does this sound like a review or a sound Crush—- well lads and lassies it’s both for Christ’ sake!
Other hit singles are: the first track, Light my Fuse and check out the fantastic vid to this track directed by Western Canadian Doug Cook (L’Rock felt he is the One and He was!! as she flow out to West to get this video in the can by the best of minds but I digress); other winners are 98.5, You’re Bringing me Down.
Come ON and Kiss me and the lovely rock ballad, Law of Attraction. On this track L’Rock sounds like a cross between Sheryl Crowe and Melissa Etheridge in fact her vocalizing runs the emotional gamut from A to Z. Like she says: ‘She’s alright! She’s alright! She’s a ball of fire!!! This ball of fire is originally from Newfoundland, but has now made her home her in Toronto. Special Kudos goes to the superlative production and Laura L’Rock gives her big thanks to Brian Gagnon. Rock is back! Bye bye Hip hop Rap and DJ’s in clubs. Live rock is here again!
