Ocean BeachTalking about voices that moves into new areas, I thought it would be a nice idea to present Karl Buhre’s solo project Ocean Beach.

Normally you can find Karl Buhre in the band Alouatta, which I wrote about a while ago here on the blog. It’s a big leap between Alouatta’s frenetic, punky rock to this singer-songwriter music, which brings us back to the early seventies in the company of CSN&Y and Joni Mitchell. He present a couple of great compositions, which you can listen to on Ocean Beach’s Myspace page.

About Alouatta, I’ve been told that they are in the studio now, recording new tracks for upcoming releases, and an album debut is being planned, a project that goes by the name “Run Tiger, Run”.

After the recordings Karl will again concentrate on Ocean Beach, and is hinting that the musical direction may change a bit. Here’s “Summer Trail”:

AlouattaNow I would like to get your attention presenting Alouatta, a really nice rock band with punk influences. They offer a lot of energy and attitude, with a close garage sound that reminds of the first punk rock era.

As I’m a real fan of special voices, I get hooked on the vocals from Karl Buhres. I hear Jimi Hendrix, both in the tone and the phrasing, but with a frenzy and energy that Jimi didn’t offer.

Alouatta was formed in 2007 by members from Coyote, Twopointeight, The Shiv, The Heartattacks and soon thereafter they released the EP “Manos Arriba”. This year they have released the vinyl single “Animal” (Big Bongo Recordings)

What Aloutta really means you can read about here (you won’t be surprised :-))
