Dictator Ship - Your Favorites

It's amazing to me how may truly great rock ad roll bands are coming out of Sweden right now. The Sign Records seems determined to sign as many of them as possible to their excellent label too! It's truly thrilling to dive into each record they serve up, the latest being the wonderful Your Favorites from Dictator Ship. The band unleash rock and roll fury here on a record recorded on eight tracks. It makes for an album that is fresh and raw, the sort of over the top rock and roll magic that you can't help but to love.

There is a sense of pure charisma behind Your Favorites that makes it infinitely relistenable. Recorded in a cabin in the woods, the band seeks to recapture the magic of 70s rock, and with every member of this quarter providing vocals at some point, they largely do. This is a band who shake, rattle and roll their way to victory time and time again. Though this record plays out across a mere 27 minutes, its brevity is in fact a strength, ensuring that the band stay fresh and wild, a fitting reminder about the everlasting magic of rock and roll - no matter what the posers might say. It's hard to listen to this and not be having a good time!

There are few bands who come into it with as much swagger as Dictator Ship. This is a record that knows just how silly it is and which eagerly dances over the top. With bellowing vocals and punchy guitar playing ,devotees to the underground are not going to be let down as they get take non a journey back to some of the highlights of 70s rock. Danceable, silly and more than enough fun to capture the imagination Your Favorites is going to leave you scraping your jaw off the floor in awe of all that is and ever shall be.
