Format: Cass
Label: Blues Control
Country: USA
Price: $6.00
"Spring 2014 cassingle. Summer Games = rough mix from an unreleased 2009 studio session. Studio 69 = live jam from 2010, recorded at home alongside the Valley Tangents demos in 2011. Ot n sweaty blues update." - Blues Control.

Artist: BLUES CONTROL
Title: Valley Tangents
Format: LP
Label: Drag City
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Theres a new muse at the house of BLUES CONTROL. Yes, mother nature! Now located in the Woodstock of east Pennsylvania, Lehigh Valley, Blues Control conceived Valley Tangents far from the madding crowds theyd previously swarmed with and composed among. Could this be the reason for the homegrown, natural feel of the music, with the metronomical hissing of summer mosquito-bots behind their signature Debussy via Guaraldi qua Bley qua Hornsby pianisms, and the playful juxtapositions of a full spectrum of rock colors: stadium, industrial, psych and prog (to name just a few)? And yet, Blues Controls shape-shifting qualities could lead us to type them as a mystic lounge act, with spacey guitar leads, a clarion synth and the punch of real drums. Only to suddenly discover they were instead playing inside a world music bag, wrapping their mellow drug-mospheres around a crisp keyboard center, evoking heat and nature with waves radiating from seemingly formal western scales! The exotic and the classical, wedded together with a freedom the old masters couldnt imagine. Of course, man has always yearned to smoke the grass on the other side of his societys fence-like McCartney in the jungle playing his staid English beats while running through ebony and ivory scales, Blues Control are liable to superimpose the British blues over new waves just to feel the juice run down their legs. Upon hearing Valley Tangents, long-time listeners will surely attest that the band are increasingly capable of anything in the spectrum they feel should be integrated." - Drag City.

Title: Puff
Format: CD
Label: Fusetron
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
First album now on CD (vinyl is out of print)! "...the music of Blues Control, as evidenced on this record, is a master work explodin. It germinates absolutely from the bowels of the Blues but erupts via a postmodern portal; there are gorgeous sheens of rust that fissure throughout, harmonicas smoke in the distance, guitars splatter, keyboards ooze white hot neo psychedelic lava, in the end, like the music emitted from Apollos lyre, it is a devastatingly wondrous experience. And as much as I hear the (non specific) PSF or Akiyama buzz, to me Blues Control seem beget from the prominent clang & snarl of Dead C, who was beget by This Heat, who was beget by Faust, from whose seed it all originated. And thats nothin to sneeze about, unless yous is allergic to greatness. A cd on Holy Mountain is next. Theys on tour right now too, so drop everything & go seeem! I know its early, but Puff seems a shoe-in for one of the years best." - Siltblog. "Puff is the work of two modern gris gris chefs, and the most righteously authentic stoner gumbo this side of Twin Infinitives or Jungle Rot. Glittery framed sunglasses and dopers remorse. The finest racket of 2007 so far." - james jackson toth/wooden wand. "Blues Controls distorted rumblings sound like Mountain or Cream songs emanating from a sunken submarine." -- New York Times. "Deep in the redundant junk DNA of the blues, between the reptilian throwbacks and vegetable remnants, lurks the mutation that gives life to Blues Control." -- Nick Southgate / The Wire. "Brute force monstrosity trudge in the cloudsmashing style of the mighty Blue Cheer...and impressionist, introspective space and electronic plant music on that subtle plane visited by Eric Satie and Popul Vuh." -- Arthur Magazine. "Celestial, watery progressive/psych stuns and beautiful puffs of minimal melody." -- Volcanic Tongue. "I saw Blues Control play a show a couple nights ago and it was totally weird and great. On top of being truly unique retro-futuristic heavy psychedelia (thats the part I expected), the visuals of their setup combined with the sonics to make me think of all kinds of unexpected things, like various beats & rhythms heard from passing cars.....cheap-keyboard entertainment in the neon-lit backs of inner-city restaurants...... all the details you might find inside a pawn shop or bodega.... what can I say, it is definitely some new kind of urban music." -- Larry Dolman / Blastitude. "The music of Blues Control, as evidenced on this record, is a master work explodin.

Title: Blues Control
Format: CD
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"As you may or may not know, it can sometimes get pretty hairy working at a record store when some smelly, denim-clad dude walks in asking for the blues. If youre lucky, hes at least wearing a belt when you point him over to the records that are now relegated to an open spot on the floor. Thats just one scenario; who doesnt love those other blues fondly recalled with names like Blues Addicts and Blues Creation? And lets not forget that other queen of the blues -- Barbara from Just Farr a Laugh. Blues Control might just be the missing link between Van Halen and legendary experimentalist Henry Flynt. They are a duo. Lea Cho plays swank but grounded atmospheric keyboard parts (think Harold Budd), through which guitar player and manipulator of assorted junk-on-table Russ Waterhouse cuts, whittles and lays to waste. Its a hazy, spaced world that exists between fuzzed distortion, jabbering electronics, and a lazy, stay-in-bed psychedelic glaze, with rhythmic keyboards pulsating below it all a la a guy named Florian -- and you can choose which one you want. Oh yeah, I gotta mention the humid bikini-vibe that permeates the entire album." -Holy Mountain.

Artist: BLUES CONTROL
Title: Local Flavor
Format: CD
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Local Flavor is the fantastic newest shimmer from BLUES CONTROL. While past releases have been beauteous extrapolations into the miasmic core of psychedelia and billowing fog of ambient space, Local Flavor is the one where all the chickens have come home to roost. The opening track "Good Morning" is practically a sideways step into boogie rock (horn accompaniment provided by none other than JESSE TRBOVICH and KURT VILE); with the proper seismic shift, it could almost be heard as an alternate reality take on "Re-make/Re-model." Its easily the bands longest stomp in the forest of rock since their debut cassette, and, man, them boots leave a bruise! The remaining three tracks morph and ebb harmoniously-in true Blues Control fashion-the timbre occasionally elegiac, yet more often riffing on a plane that has yet to be transcribed." - Siltbreeze.
