BJ Anders And The Buccaneers know how to add some rock to their roll and billy to their rocka. If either of those things get you jiving, then you’ll have a blast with this album.
Sea of Tranquillity (September 2013)
“Idiot Creed” ramps up the punky groove with Jacob Hjarne’s bass shaking the bottom end and the “I Feel Fine” quote adding up to the playful mood. Spiky as well, “These Glorious Times” rolls deliberately sweet for its percussive grit anyway, yet there’s sharp intensity to the acoustically textured jewel “Wolf Girl” to compensate for it. And when the romantic “When The Lights Are Out” fades out of sight, one wishes there’d be more than a dozen cuts on the band’s Jolly Roger of a debut. ****1/2
