Dynamo Bliss - Day And Night (2013)
The third album from this Swedish band.
Dynamo Bliss was a trio on this album with a lineup of guitars, bass, drums, banjo, accordion, keyboards and vocals.
This seems to be the final album from this band as we have heard nothing from them since 2013. Which is a great shame.
I have reviewed their two first albums and you will find the reviews here and here.
Dynamo Bliss is one of those bands who operated somewhere between retro-pop and progressive rock. You will find lots of references to ELO, 10CC and The Beatles here. There is also some references to west coast rock here. And there is even some more exotic Spanish folk music references here. Not to forget; some references to Scandinavian symphonic prog too.
All this during forty minutes of music.
The music is light and flowery. It feels like summer music enjoyed by people in shorts and t-shirts. And this is good music too. Mostly....... The sound is very good and that makes up for some of the shortcomings here.
This is a good album and almost an essential album for those into flowery light progressive rock.
