In lieu of a lengthy intro, let me just state that Toronto's own Tumble have absolutely knocked it out of the park with this debut two track EP. Bringing proto-metal groove and a vivacious energy to the retro hard rock aesthetic, this three piece makes a strong opening statement with Lady Cadaver.
Side A is catchy and frenetic in a fashion that is instantly gripping. The central riff is an absolute doozy. The vocals fit the mood and vintage vibe like a glove, dusty yet not without a subtle bite. There's a delightful sense of momentum. With all that said, the track's arguable strongest suit is the unexpected drum solo that slots neatly into the back half, providing an exciting and dramatic moment in the midst of a song that, for all intents and purposes, was already quite exciting and dramatic. When the riff comes back, reinvigorated, one can't help but smile.
We provide thoughtful reviews of music that wakes us from slumber. Written by a highfalutin peasantry.
