Gwyn Ashton - Solo Elektro album review

The best Blues you can get this month

TODO alt text

Something of a reinvention for the Australian troubadour. Solo Elektro might be proudly raw as hell – recording live in the studio, Ashton self-flagellates both his voice box and guitar to the point of abuse – but it’s ambitiously written, with tracks running the gamut between alt.blues, stoner rock and Eastern-tinged, Lennon-voiced psychedelia. These new clothes suit him.
