mojomatics You Are the Reason for My Troubles (150g vinyl LP + CD, £17.95)label: Wild Honey Records
The Mojomatics do not disguise their love and admiration for the musical forefathers. They celebrate them. The melodic structures of The Byrds and The Kinks, the interplay of the primal and the delicate often found in early Rolling Stones and electric Dylan records and finally the musical DNA that its all based on - Folk and Blues - its all here. "You Are The Reason For My Troubles" hits your heart with its authentic soul and the analog taste. The vintage touch can be seen everywhere: from the wholly analog recordings to the cover artwork. The Mojomatics spent three years working on the songs presented here. The majority of time and effort were dedicated to discarding tracks that watered down the bitter sweet essence of the record. Often times one gets the impression You Are The Reason For My Troubles is less of an album and more of a singles collection that spans a 20 year career.
