Album Review

If you want to embrace a roots-friendly country rock sound that harkens back to the 1970s, you can't fault the Deep Vibration for striving to get the details right. Based out of Nashville, the Deep Vibration's debut EP Veracruz includes some impressive and appropriate guests — Al Perkins, who's played pedal steel with everyone from Gram Parsons to Dwight Yoakam, adds his licks to two songs, while legendary songwriter and keyboard man Spooner Oldham tickles the ivories on four cuts, and Gillian Welch contributes lovely harmonies to the closer, "Tennessee Rose." With Niko Bolas behind the board, is it any wonder that Veracruz's best moments sound like excerpts from some lost Neil Young album (dig that noisy guitar solo on the ride-out of "Third Day of July")? Or maybe some Dixie-fried Rolling Stones demos ("Oklahoma City Woman Blues" suggests these guys have spent a lot of time studying Exile on Main St.)? There's no question that the Deep Vibration have carefully listened and learned, but while they've got the moves of their key influences down pat, they haven't figured out how to write songs nearly as compelling as any of the folks they love, and that's their greatest stumbling block. The five songs on Veracruz show promise and no small amount of skill, but until the Deep Vibration develop a musical personality of their own and songwriting chops to go with them, they're going to have to settle for being a '70s tribute band whose songs seem curiously familiar and unfamiliar at once.

Customer Reviews

Bringing back a sound that once was.

I can't stop listening to this latest release from Nashville band The Deep Vibration. After a thorough listen to "Veracruz", I was transformed back to a time when true rock fused together emotion with raw sound. The Deep Vibration’s mix of pure vocals and solid guitar solos are distinctly unique in today's landscape of retro revival music. Wrought with emotion and power, The Deep Vibration seamlessly flips the switch of time through this EP, with a brief look at a band full of potential. The songs are well thought out and purposefully restrained so that the dynamic vocals are unchained at the appropriate moments. While the songwriting is solid, it's the sound that carries this folk-rock fusion the whole way and sets it apart. I will be anxiously awaiting a full-length cut.
