All the best music comes from Manchester – it’s a fact. No exception to the rule are blues-and-soul tinged rockers Turrentine Jones, a three piece formed in the rainy city. To be released August 11th this year, their debut album Our Days will be their first physical release, as well as their first non-single release – apparently foregoing the recent EP trend for a more conventional approach. Funnily enough, none of their first three singles appear on the album, with the free download ‘Moonlight Is On Yer Side’ being the only familiar appearance.

Our Days wastes no time and launches straight into the stomper, ‘Gift Of A Rose‘. Almost immediately I hear a voice seemingly so familiar, but somehow possessing a previously unheard character. Sounding somewhat like a cross between Jim Morrison and Mick Jagger, Australian frontman Julian Neville absolutely oozes attitude in the delivery of his lyrics. Another thing that soon struck me is the rather straightforward production on the track, with similar production heard all the way throughout the album. That said, Turrentine Jones don’t need to hide behind production bells and whistles, the composition of their songs stands up by itself .

Next up is the track ‘Hunger’, bearing a very similar rhythm to the first track. It is markedly different however, and an early era Kasabian-esque feel to the tune sets it apart from its predecessor. A personal highlight of the album for me, the third track ‘Love Heard You Coming’ features an ever-present organ laying down melodic lines and sublime backing to the guitar and Neville’s lyrics. I was surprised to learn that the bass was in fact synthesised, played by Thomas Scotson, alongside the organs on the album. ‘Love Heard You Coming’ really lets Scotson’s talents shine as an instrumentalist, and his instrumentation makes the track the pleasure to listen to that it is.

Slow builder ‘Grace Is A Dancer’ eases the mood before live fan-favourite ‘Moonlight Is On Yer Side’ bursts into life. I was taken aback by the complicated and melodic bass grooves Scotson laid down under the catchy mantra and superb instrumentation . Drummer Rich Watts’ fills also provide exquisite percussive interest and a beat that’s hard to resist the urge to get up and dance to. Tracks ‘Pussy Cat‘ and ‘Little Queen‘ follow, giving listeners more of the sound enjoyed earlier in the album.

Penultimate track ‘June‘ slows things down to a pace almost perfect for a summer evening. The song is brimming with blues sensibility and a soulful guitar solo provides the leap the album needed to truly propel the release to the next level. Album closer ‘Mary Ann‘ provides faint echoes of the complicated and intricate extended outros of The Verve‘s Urban Hymns LP to great effect – ending what was truly a very enjoyable listening experience with a bang.

Turrentine Jones have definitely piqued my interest, and I look forward to hearing what bluesy delights they produce next. In the meantime though, you can look forward to Our Days – available on vinyl, CD and digital download from August 11th.
