Album Review- Dishwalla Is Back.. Riding Down “Juniper Road”- Out 7/14

DISHWALLA:  The platinum-selling, award-winning band with a career spanning over 2 decades and 5 albums brings us new music “Juniper Road”



California Alternative Rock mainstays Dishwalla will release their 5th studio album, Juniper Road, through Pavement Entertainment worldwide digitally on June 16 and CD on July 14, 2017.

Dishwalla fans are going to love this new album. The guys – Rodney Browning Cravens-Guitar, Scot Alexander – Bass, Jim Wood – Keyboards, George Pendergast – Drums Justin Fox – Vocalist – have not missed a  beat, for not having released a studio album in over 10 years. As they say, “All good things come to those who wait,”. Dishwalla launched a successful Pledge Music campaign in order for their strong diehard fan base.They had such a huge response to the campaign they needed help and inked a deal with  Pavement Entertainment, and Juniper Road is the fruits of their labor.

Juniper Road is an album that shows fans they are true to their roots and they have made an album that the band can be proud of and the fans of old and new can enjoy. The album starts off masterfully with “Siren” and “Give Me A Sign“. The band blends classic Dishwalla sounds with an edge. “Miles Away” is a nice ballad with catchy little hooks that you can just sit back and chill too. ” Don’t Fade Away” kicks up the tempo and gets the toe tapping and gets you wanting to the sing the song out loud, this will be a great anthem song at the live shows.

Another stand song is “Now I Know“, is has a nice edgy sound with a great groove for days. I really think the fans are going to love this one. “Darkness Conceals” is another standout song the really showcases the bands’ progression of the years, the song is really melodic and mellow and showcases the Justin vocals, which are spot on though out the album, and the band has come a long way musically as well.

Dishwalla’s music helped define the sound of a generation. Their music is timeless and “Juniper Road” just one more example of their music that will be around for a long time. Touted by fans and industry alike as one of the best live bands to come out of the ’90s, I can’t wait to see them play their new stuff live.
