Assaulting the senses with a range of atmospheric blasts, Minnesota’s Chooglin’ makes their auspicious debut with the riveting project, Sweet Time.
Led by guitarists Brian Vanderwerf and Jesse Tomlinson, Chooglin’ sprints out of the gate with the title referenced track, "Take Your Sweet Time." It introduces trombonists Harold Longley, Steve Erickson, Zach Zins and trumpeter Bob DeBoer. "Waltz in D" enjoys a slow blues strut courtesy of bassist Paul Diorio and drummer Shawn Walker. Recorded at Minneapolis’ Creation Studios, Sweet Time employs a new standard in the annals of punk improvisation on the extended set closer, "Risin’ Sun."
Tight, bracing rock make for a rewarding listening experience on Chooglin’s Sweet Time.
Sweet Time is out now on Big Legal Mess/Fat Possum.
