Tweed EQ / Press

““Itching for a hearty slice of old-school funk merged with vintage soul, rock and blues? Pick up Harmonisizer, the nine-track CD by Dallas' Tweed EQ, and scan right to "Stop!" Think Taj Mahal meets Smokey Robinson, as the band's vocalist and the tune's songwriter Paisley Ascott says. Winston Mingus' drums and percussion work drive the song, while Goose Trimmson's slap-happy bass and plenty of scratchy electric guitar from Sputnik Jones and Ascott make you move. The vibe of Tweed EQ pulls from the '70s, whether the group is experimenting with R&B, rock or blues. In fact, just one listen to Harmonisizer and Isaac Hayes, War, Led Zeppelin, Van Morrison and Jeff Beck all immediately come to mind. Other standouts on the disc include "The Hawk," "The Drought" and "Soul Soothin'." ”

““The nine tracks that make up Tweed EQ's new record, Harmonisizer, showcase a band that recognizes the urgent, emotional essence of soulful and funky blues.””

““After reading the bio on Tweed EQ and reviewing their CD Harmonisizer, I found that their most endearing factor was simple. Simple down to earth Rock-n-roll /Blues, no over production here, just some good old roof raising music and lyrics. Holding the power of the Who in one hand and the soul of Zeppelin in the other, track 1 "Ode To Autumn" could have been the title cut to Dazed and Confused. Having grown up in the 70's I find this CD very refreshing. Alot of the music today is easy to describe: NOISE and shitty noise at that. Nice to hear a band that knows and cares about melody and rhythm. Track 3 "A Good Nights Rest" stands tall in the corner of that old school power blues I grew up partying to. On a scale of 1 to 5 *'s , Harmonisizer get's 5 *****.””
