Storm on the horizon: King Legba & The Loas and Carve A Pat | Alternative music reviewed

King Legba & The Loas and Carve A Pat

Carve A Pat – Outlet

Genre: Punk, Pop Punk

Similar artists: Green Day, Blink 182, The Offspring, The Ramones, Sum 41, Rise Against

For a lot of people, the moment that pop-punk, grunge, Britpop, etc., meant simply that music trends were doing their usual dance. But, ask the people that were part of these groups’ core audience if this kind of success was essential to them. Whether they were thrilled that their favorite groups were achieving success or angry that the rest of the world was now partaking in something that used to be known solely by them, they certainly took notice of what was going on. 

The fact is that when non-mainstream bands achieve success, they don’t just represent themselves but also people that are otherwise practically invisible to mainstream society. It’s these kinds of music heroes that make others become hopeful about their musical evolution. These bands help empower all of the people that are like them. 

In many ways, Carve A Pat’s Outlet is about the incredible hope and positivity that doing what you love can bring to your life. This is not a tune about punk anarchy, growing a mohawk, or anything like that. It’s much more profound. It’s a song about sweating it out in rehearsal rooms and finding the energy to keep going. And because of these reasons, it’s a tune that will find its audience of like-minded individuals. 


King Legba & The Loas – The Storm Will Scream Your Name

Stoner Rock, Garage Rock, Alternative Rock

Similar artists: Soundgarden, Hellacopters, Gluecifer

If Leadbelly could rise for just one day and listen to modern music, I’m sure that he’d be very intrigued and disappointed. He wouldn’t be disappointed by the sound that he is likely to hear but by the fact that he wasn’t allowed the opportunity to create such things himself. 

The fact is that no matter how full an acoustic twelve-string guitar can sound, it surely doesn’t cover the mystifying, murderous howl that a distorted, low-tuned electric guitar can. Leadbelly would undoubtedly find a way to work his songs about deceit and murder with such instrumentation. Let us then rejoice for what we have. 

King Legba & The Loas’ The Storm Will Scream Your Name is a song built on the power and menace of stoner-rock-inspired guitars. It is, over everything, a love letter to the potential of this kind of music to sound like the very elements of nature unleashed. This is a sound that owes a lot to the gloom and power of early grunge, doom, and of course, stoner, and one that shows how the appeal of these genres is unlikely to disappear any time in the near future.
