PREMIERE: Birds of Night Bring The Guitar Solo Back

    Too many bands today have forgotten the art of the killer guitar solo. We got to this period where progginess became a dirty word in the sort of circles we typically run in, and extended instrumental solos became a an even dirtier word linked to musical pretention -- though it apparently isn't pretentious to sing about sipping "Horchata" while wearing a balaclava (so there's no confusion, that's my favorite Vampire Weekend song but there's certainly a strange double standard here).

    We're premiering "Asleep in the Pine," a tumultuous bit of Black Sabbath via Zeppelin guitar rock, from Texas rockers Birds of Night and it's beyond refreshing to hear an act let their hair down and just wail on their instruments. About two-thirds of the way through the song, an already thumping guitar track transforms into the sort of solo I'd have played over and over again on the school bus when I was a kid. It's the sort of guitar solo that makes you wish you could play the guitar because if you could throw that down at a party, you'd be king. Birds of Night are soaring from here on out.
