It’s 2010 and the grunge Beatles have arrived. This in the form of Allan Hayslip’s quartet and their inviting confluence of 60's song-sense and 90's sound-styling.
Not afraid of melodies-- or harmonies for that matter, as a large part of the lyrics is delivered by two or more voices, Bonedome maintains an astounding balance of driving energy, choice musical accents, and patient catchiness.
Unapologetic and confident, due perhaps in part to Hayslip’s decades of musicianship, from boys’ choir, to symphony orchestra, to Texas rock band. -- A.S.
