album review by John Powell

Thunder Body | What's Sweet About Lemons

Music’s ending the year on a high note with Thunder Body’s new single, “What’s Sweet About Lemons”, and its B-side, “Moonlight Over Mendocino”. Although Thunder Body is, in flesh and bones, roots reggae, the truth is that there’s magic to their sound, to Matt O’Brian’s songwriting. Transcending genre, these two songs, from the forthcoming LP Secrets of Senzae Vol. 1, are just, simply and purely, beautiful.

“Moonlight Over Mendocino” is a love song without any cliché. The instrumentation is bold one drop and steady riddims. Matt’s entering a seasoned stage of his singing career, infusing emotional subtly. If the music itself doesn’t massage your soul, the lyrics will. “When I get home you’ll get my best affection,” Matt sings, “Anywhere is home if you’re around.” Lush and spacious, the song is easy to learn and hard to not sing along to. “You and I and the baby we made,” Matt gestures. “I think about you when I’m not there.”

For “What’s Sweet About Lemons”, the song is smart. “What’s sweet about lemons?” Matt asks. “Their beautiful color/ and they go good with water.” Thunder Body is always finding grace in little moments, scoring big with meditations of human nature, on the ability to slow down and appreciate, and that makes for powerful music. “What’s sweet about honey?” Matt asks in verse two. “Come from pollinators/ assigned by some great orchestrater.”

The single is arriving on vinyl pressed by Cherish Records, a small company making Thunder Body their first ever pressing. Because the songs have timeless qualities to them, packaged in vinyl is immortalization, and makes you realize how to appreciate albums one song at a time.

Thunder Body fans will reach new levels of admiration for this Rochester, NY group, while newbies will fall in love instantly. This is good stuff for both Cherish Records and Thunder Body.

Bottom line: Thunder Body scores with reggae-pitched songs about love and moments. Not to be missed, and coming out in one small batch on vinyl.

compare prices, ensuring that you obtain the best deal possible.
Let's make that cash go as far as it will!
