The group’s debut album Magic Valley was released on May 5, 2017 via Cotton Valley Music/Interscope Records. From the blistering “Charge Up The Power” with its jackhammer drum beats and Milbourn’s scalding vocals to the hushed mixed blessings of “Darlin” with its hot candle wax slide solo and Gregorian chorale to the trippy feel good “Daisy,” Magic Valley represents the moods and moments that define being 20 something and coming into your own. There is the trainbeat hoedown blues of “Oh No” that explodes into staccato bursts of electric guitars and the slithering lurch of “Good Side,” both flexing bravado and the kind of intensely focused playing that pummels.
Sprawling bits of out of control Aerosmith, the heavy aura of Queens of the Stone Age, a sense of blues and a bit of sweeping melody infuse these eleven songs. There’s the quiet back and forth “You Don’t Love Me Like Before,” the speed metal jut of “Bamboozler,” the spaghetti Western undertow of “Bad Things” and the Robert Plant locomotive of “Goldmaker” for versatility.
