Album Review: Northcote

Title:  Northcote (Official, Amazon, iTunes)
Artist:  Northcote (Official, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Rdio, BandCamp, Last.fm)  

Northcote’s sophomore self-titled full-length is an earnest and honest collection of singer-songwriter rock ‘n’ roll tunes that perfectly meld elements of classic rock, alt country, and folk punk.  In other words, this is a great record for fans of Dave Hause, The Gaslight Anthem, Austin Lucas, Bruce Springsteen, and Tim Barry (just to name a few).  Northcote is the solo project of former Means and The Emerson Letters frontman Matthew Goud and this latest release is nothing short of fantastic.  The 12 song album deals with life through catchy and moving hooks and lyrics, on ballads and rockers, resulting in powerful example of how great rock ‘n’ roll can be.
