Tits, Tats & Whiskers return with the follow up to 2014’s “All The Things” with “Laugh, Dance & Cry” !! The CD features 8 tracks as well as a bonus track, so 9 in all. The musical direction is a rock/grunge sound, but there is a noticeable jazz/blues influence as well.
TT&W is a very unique band with a very unique style !! Three different musical personalities from three different countries living in Japan, with their love of music bringing them all together !! Ponzi(U.S.) on killer vocals/guitar/album artwork, Astrid(Philippines) on thumping bass/vocals and Mattia(Italy) on heart pounding drums/percussion !!
There is music here for any genre !! Turbo charged rockers like “Grip On Me” and the single “Guilty Dance” with Ponzi’s great guitar licks and emotional vocals that range from a low growl to high screams. “Only Let’s You” combines a great hard blues/rock riff and a very catchy chorus !! “Will Erase” with some kool sax and “Mr Cushing” showcase TT&W’s softer side. “Conditions” is a fantastic song feat some great jazz influenced guitar, fuzz guitar and hard rock/blues guitar !! The jewel on the CD is the bonus track “Tales Of The Old Whiskers” !! A brilliant instrumental with awesome no word vocal harmonies !! Definite Zeppelin influence, but extremely unique !! “Laugh, Dance & Cry” is a “brilliant” CD and very deserving of a being 5Star !!
