Bob Langham has just posted his in-depth review of Bazooka. Check it out now!
“I remember when Babyface reviewed Jealous Creatures last time he said how impressed he was, and based on what I’ve just heard of things I’m inclined to agree with him. This is an album which moves through different moods as it progresses, roving from in your face and powerful at one moment through to laid back and soothing at another, there’s twists, turns and surprises around every corner, surely presenting us with an album that is going to be returned to time and time again.”
Space City Rock is the blog to go to when it comes to keeping up with all things local music, and they just posted their best-of lists for 2012. Jealous Creatures made the cut for Top 10 Local Videos (THANKS!), but you should really check out the post because it’s pretty much an exhaustive list of what’s going on in the Houston music scene right now.

After checking out their tracks it would be pointless to sum up all twelve individually. There would be far too much to say with only a limited space to say it all. Going through the list song by song it was evident that there’s a plan of action going on here and nothing is going to stand in their way. The riffs on offer in the majority of the tracks are really catchy and upbeat. The distorted nature gives off an impressive aura, keeping you indulged and left wanting more.For example track eight – Just A Memory builds up and up gradually, the increase of tempo works well leaving you with a punchy, purposeful riff that made me want to get in my car and just drive.

On their album Little Heaven Big Sky, alt-rockers Jealous Creatures aim to never droop or drag, just heave forward with well-crafted–not corporate–tendencies. Continue reading
