Album Notes
Departures is the debut full length feature album from Brisbane 3-piece Yoshimi Maserati. Following on from 2013's four track EP The Via Studio Sessions, guitarist Chris Simmonds and bass player J-Dub have crafted a melodic mix of layered guitars, rhythmic bass and rocking drums. The album was recorded over the summer and autumn of 2014 and in the months following, Producer Kerrod Dabelstein (Noise Theory Studios) refined, mixed and re-recorded the band's original sounds to produce an album of depth, maturity and luscious guitar hooks.
Departures launches at full tilt with the Foo-Fighters-esq "Days and Nights" (complete with a Dave Grohl-like scream), which is followed up in contrast with two grooving, guitar hooks ("BMT" and "Resolution") that pull the listener in and have them rocking along in no time. "Hypnotised" is one of the stand-outs with its beautiful mix of acoustic and electric guitars, reminiscent of The Church and The Byrds. The back end of the album takes a darker turn with three different but interesting songs. "Grey" with its pounding bass and guitars drives along relentlessly - the delicate piano by contrast softens and at the same times adds to the intensity. "Don't Believe" has a simple guitar riff overlaying a fat bass. But it is the anthemic organ, two paced rhythm and vocals which gives the song a creepy and unique sound. The album closer is the sparse "Burnt Bad". An acoustic guitar starts off and is joined in turn by a crunching guitar and piano before a killer solo takes the song to extraordinary heights. J-Dub's spoken word vocals at the end are the perfect close to a great Australian debut.
