May 16, 2010 FREE ENERGY!
Isn’t it funny how things seem to come full circle?
A long long time ago in my sophomore year of high school I stumbled upon the wonderful band Hockey Night. With a catchy mix of sweet basslines, harmonized lead guitar lines, and triumphant vocals, Hockey Night made me want to blare my car stereo and drive around town like there was no tomorrow.
Now in my sophomore year of college, Hockey Night has reformed as Free Energy, and they have a brand new full-length to show for their efforts. Stuck On Nothing is a blast of the same awesome musical mix that made Hockey Night so awesome. Also, this time they are banking a lot more on their musical resemblance of one of my favorite bands of all time: Thin Lizzy. An indie rock Thin Lizzy? Am I dreaming? Fortunately, not. Check out two great songs from their new CD and EP, which you should absolutely go out and buy right now.
Also, here’s a gem from their old Hockey Night days: Dark Trance (Psychic Lightning). They’ve re-recorded this song under the new title “Young Hearts,” but I like the old version better.
If these songs don’t sound like summer, then I don’t know what does.
