Albums Of The Week: The Whiskey Foundation | Leisure

The Bavarian blues-rockers serve up their smooth vibes with a well-aged ’70s vibe.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:The Whiskey Foundation create sound that carries you away. Away into an era that no longer exists, away to places that probably only exist in pure culture outside of Bavaria, the home of the six musicians.

It’s all the more astonishing how quickly one believes the blues-funk sound in their live performances: With pumping basses, driving drums, a wafting Hammond organ, dirty vocals and floating to edgy guitars complemented by a brilliantly played harmonica. The Whiskey Foundation have gained the reputation as an inspiring live band in the years since their founding in 2011. During this time, the Munich blues sextet played over 300 concerts at festivals, in pubs and clubs and was booked as support for AC/DC and Deep Purple on stadium tours.

In 2022, the band announced that after 10 years, there would be a lineup change for the first time — with the additon of guitarists Dario Krajina and Simon Singer, the quintet combo became a sextet. Their fourth studio album, on which the two new members are already fully involved, was produced and recorded in their own rehearsal room during Corona lockdowns.”
