Frank Abreau, the lead voice of the rockers in Strange Hotel, has a new solo EP out. Entitled RIDE, the follow-up to his full-length Appetite finds Abreau exploring some new sonic territory, especially the haunting, industrial-tinged dirge “Release Your Mind” and the grungy electro-groove of closer “Julie Says.” My favorite, however, is the song “Morphine” with its scuzzy bass line, lyrics that are spit out with vehemence, violence hanging onto every syllable, and a sense of desperation coating the chorus. Though it only consists of four tracks, the musical substance will have you coming back for repeated listens.
