VIDEO: The Charlie Watts Riots’ “Bottom”
The Charlie Watts Riots have just released the official video for “Bottom,” the lead-off single from the band’s new sophomore album, A Break in the Weather. The band celebrated the album’s release last month with a double-header performance at LarkFest and Valentine’s Music Hall.
And the album is starting to generate some rave reviews, too. Here are excerpts from a few of them:
From Power Popaholic: “They showed potential on their debut, Long Story Short – but now they sound a lot heavier with even better melodies. Like a power pop version of Nirvana, the dual layered guitar attack of ‘Bottom’ sets the stage. ‘Curtains’ is a mix of Fountains Of Wayne with Foo Fighters. ‘Luanne’ has a slow build but quickly becomes a fast paced single that won’t leave your head. Each tune keeps you interested, fans of Superdrag and the Posies are sure to love this.”
From Willfully Obscure: “Fans of this three-minute, three-chord form are a pretty traditional lot and … those with a penchant for power pop purity meshed with big, plump guitars, will do just fine (if not better) with the second album from Albany, NY’s Charlie Watts Riots.”
From PowerPop: “My new favorite band in the world…”
