Now Hear This: Wedge | Like No Tomorrow

I'm getting caught up on the good albums that have come out lately. Like this one.

192

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Berlin power trio Wedge live up to their name, driving their musical sound between many different genres: Garage rock turns progressive while psychedelic guitar lines are tripping over hard-rocking riffs. Do they all work together? Hell yes!

For fans of Deep Purple, MC5, Led Zeppelin, Thin Lizzy or Humble Pie, this album is a sure shot. You like fuzz guitars? Hammond organ and vocals trough a swirling Leslie cabinet? More cowbell? You got it. But unlike our beloved rock records from around 1971, which we’ve heard a hundred times before, Like No Tomorrow has one huge advantage: It’s brand new and the eight tracks — ranging from three to nine minutes — deliver a fresh, unspent and unmistakably unique taste to the rock ’n’ roll menu.

In the tradition of bands like The Raconteurs, The Hellacopters, Graveyard or Wolfmother, Wedge are building on that vintage vibe we all know and love, but evolving their very own thing — and they’re able to connect it directly to here and now. Lyrically, their tunes are picking up on the zeitgeist, dealing with digitalisation, mass migration and other current issues. So it’s no coincidence that the record’s title is a direct hint at our crazy times, when it feels like the end of the world might be lurking just around the very next corner. But rather than being pessimistic about it, Wedge want to convey a positive message: “When it feels like there might be no tomorrow, just love and live Like No Tomorrow.”
