iTunes Review

The British trio Little Barrie has turned out a few solid records of vintage-flavored rock ’n’ roll, but on its third record, King of the Waves, it figured out that rubbing its meticulously crafted, soul-inflected power pop tunes into the mud goes a long way to lending its sound the grit it needed to get the blood pumping. Not only is there more grit, but singer/guitarist Barrie Cadogan’s playing (and vocal work) has more muscle and heft. The raging, addictive opener “Surf Hell” is charged with a powerful jolt of reverb and twang, and that garage-surf spark ignites a handful of tunes with enough heat to melt granite. “How Come” is a swaggering power pop number that could've come out of 1979 L.A., while the title track's bluesy, midnight vibe makes much out of seemingly simple, languid guitar and bass lines coated in distortion. Little Barrie's soulful side manifests in both the barbed edges of tunes like “We Can’t Work It Out” and the undulant stealth of “New Diamond Love.” Producer Edwyn Collins (Orange Juice, “A Girl Like You”) and musician Shawn Lee, who mixed King of the Waves, deserve crowns of their own.

its quite a rocker!

Very solid album produced by Edwyn Collins. Surf Hell, How Come, King of the Waves and New Diamond Love are me favourites. I still dont get why itunes doesnt have their first album.

Little Barrie are a London-based trio whose sound is an exciting blend of hard rock, blues, soul, and funk that calls to mind classic bands of the '60s like Traffic and Cream, and whose loose and groovy earthiness earns them a place near the front of the jam band class. Formed in Nottingham in 2000 by Barrie Cadogan (guitar, vocals), Wayne Fulwood (drums, vocals), and Lewis Wharton (bass), Little Barrie released a handful of singles for small labels like Stark Reality and Showdown before getting...
