Cloverhill

All Done With Dreaming

Independent Release

Released May 14, 2020

Album Review By JD Rich

Boston Rock Radio

 

 

If there’s anything good that came out of this Year From Hell, the second studio release from Cloverhill would be near the top of the list. It’s been a nightmare for just about everybody, so nobody will blame you if you missed the release announcement for All Done With Dreaming. Mea culpa as well, but better late than never.​

 

This English trio went easy on the cliched production bells and whistles to deliver a raw Blues Rock album that features a viable retro vibe, harkening back to the mid to early 70s. Influences from roadhouse-style bands from that era can be heard in a spectacular array, complete with female backup vocals, wah pedals, and tales of heartbreak. You can practically smell the burning cigarettes emanating from a full ashtray.​

 

Vocalist/guitarist Paul Laskey pulls out all the stops, tackling a huge range from steady and determined to slow and reflective. Simple acoustic arrangements slide effortlessly into gritty guitar riffs worth out sounding disjointed. Drummer Jon Hollins displays a sixth sense in knowing when to unleash the beast and when to keep it muzzled, depending on the song’s mood as harmoniously relayed by Laskey. Marcio Couto completes the audio texture, sometimes seemingly leading the tempo with bass lines bubbling just under the surface. Without his strong undercurrent, All Done With Dreaming would fall flat.​

 

Cloverhill’s fan base should see an expansion thanks to this latest EP, especially among music lovers who can’t get enough of Blues Rock. For the most part, the sound is consistent but not stagnant. If one track’s style doesn’t suit you, just pop to the next one. The more you listen, chances are you’ll end up liking all ten tracks. Now that you’ve had your wake-up call, there’s no time like the present to be All Done With Dreaming.
