Album Review – Ash Grunwald – Troubles Door

Posted by: on Jul 3, 2012 | No Comments


With his fifth album, Ash Grunwald has developed once again on the particular sound that has been brewing over his previous releases. Trouble’s Door, the latest release, has the upbeat and electronic tempos that we have grown to love over the years.

Kicking off with ‘The Devil In Me’ this album is full foot stampin’, booty shakin’ numbers that are the perfect soundtrack to a Sunday barbeque or party. The first single ‘Longtime’ has been receiving considerable airplay on Triple J over the past couple of months and followers of Ash’s music will definitely find something to feed their appetites as it has been a couple of years of touring all around the world for Ash.

It’s been a decade since Grunwald first stepped onto the blues scene with his debut Introducing Ash Grunwald, and what a change that time has made to his career. Starting out playing classic blues songs from legends such as Howlin’ Wolf, and Son House, Ash has created a completely original sound that takes full flight on Trouble’s Door.

My favourite track on the album would have to be ‘Shake’ the electronic drumbeat had me groovin around the lounge room in no time, do yourself a favour and check out a bluesman at the top of his game.
