Ripple Green - Timepiece 
Ripple Green - Timepiece

Release Date: 6th July 2015

Ripple Green are a trio of rockers from Oklahoma who filmed their video for this latest release during the Summer Solstice of 2014 at Stonehenge. Now, I don't want to get all historical or political on the eve of 4th July as I write this but, well, bloody Yanks coming over here stealing our mystical national monuments for their music videos. Ahem, sorry, just had to get that out. Anyway, 'Timepiece' is a laid-back piece of funk-soul-rock but it's not as bad as that sounds like it should be. Sure there are elements of early Maroon 5 which is right on the border of my taste parameters but then there are hints of Red Hot Chili Peppers at their best and the bluesy middle 8 featuring muted vocal harmonies is actually a thing of beauty that the likes of Brother & Bones or Incubus would have no problem including on a track. By the time the song winds to a close it has crept under my skin and I'm hooked on the hook which is surely the main challenge these days in terms of getting yourself noticed.
