The High Line Riders :: Bumping Into Nothing

by

HighLineRidersBumping-coverNa een stilte van 18 jaar zijn The High Line Riders terug. En hoe! Bumping Into Nothing is een meesterlijke CD. De ideale combi van hun New Yorkse roots en de alternatieve country van Nashville. Ed Pettersen is een geweldige zanger en schrijver die niet aarzelt ons deelgenoot te maken van zijn verslavingen en demonen. Muzikaal zitten The High Line Riders in de hoek van The Bottle Rockets en Drive-By Truckers, maar met een volstrekt eigen gezicht. Helemaal top.

After 18 years the High Line Riders are back on the Americana Rock stage. High Line Riders? Admittedly, it’s been a while and perhaps only true fans will remember this New York City band and their only album Somewhere South Of Here from 1997. But hearing their full name from back then – Ed Pettersen & The High-Line Riders – the penny should drop: Ed Pettersen has had a remarkably interesting career as an extremely versatile musician ranging from singer/songwriter, folk, power pop, rock to electronic music and freestyle jazz. With his brand new album Bumping Into Nothing and the revitalized band name he appears well-prepared for a return to good ol’ rock’n’roll with meaty lead vocals, loud guitars and excellent, catchy songs!
