Joseph Pruitt of Family Trees has been busy creating a new one-man side project called Son of Rams; music so gritty and irresistible it’s perhaps the best cure for those winter time blues. Though we can hear the classic rock influences, from sixties pop melodies to seventies psychedelic rock riffs, there remains a refreshingly progressive building of sound in Pruitt’s work. His music explodes with triumphant, fuzzed-out glory reminding us of how dirty garage rock can be dangerous and comforting all at once. Jangly, charming, sultry and intoxicating, these sounds are just full of good times. You hear Son of Rams’ songs and it’s like you can hear the sunrise, exactly the kind of thing we should hope for in good rock music.
Check out his website for full album downloads including my favorite track of the bunch “Triple-Eyed”. Son of Rams just put up a new release called Frolics In The Pink.
