The quintet Rambling Nicholas Heron, hailing from Göteborg, started out in 2006 and have since then released ten album DIY-wise, that is, on CDR:s, cassettes and the like. But they waited until last year, though, before they released their first official full length album “Cannot Feel At Home In This World Anymore”.
It’s an album that breathes of the seventies in what they call indie-folk-rock-boogie-blues. You can find numerous references to artists from that decade on this varied album, as they pass from country songs, playful american folk, boogie grooves, blues rock and other stuff. I like their simple sound, which keeps it all in line together with the singer’s special tone, which I would describe as a mix of how Dylan could sound in the seventies, Canned Heat and Steve Miller. There’s a lot to enjoy on this album: Strong compositions and hooks with quite a few great melodies, a delicious guitar sound, a dynamic production sweet for the ears and from time to time a groove that makes my feet involuntarily move to the beat.
