Ok, I am going to switch it up for a minute here. If you are anything like me, you don't just listen to hardcore or heavy music. Sometimes you need something a little lighter to break it all up every now and then. With that notion in mind, I present to you Overland, a bluesy rock and roll band from California. Rock can be very hit or miss on the local level. Sometimes, the singers voice isn't as great as he thinks it is, sometimes the music just ends up a little boring after a few songs. This is not the case with Overland. With the level of songwriting they have, it sounds like they have been doing this for a damn long time. Each song goes through different sounds and emotions, from upbeat and happy, to slow and dreary. Everyone in the band comes from different musical backgrounds and it is apparent in the sound that they have created. More than once, I caught myself thinking of how much this band has a Kenny Wayne Shepard feel to it. Kick back, crack a beer and let Overland take you on an adventure.
