Raising the bar - Two Hundred Bars - Music review

Thursday, January 06, 2011 , , , 0 Comments

As I write these words, the sound of a harmonica, guitars (both electric and acoustic), a tambourine and the faded out beat of a bass drum echoes in my ears in a seamless and perfect array. "Space Junkie", as they named it, is the second of a four-track self-titled debut release by Two Hundred Bars.

Listening to these guys is truly like being in a souped-up Indian ashram which has been taken over by other worldly beings possessing a higher form of intelligence. It is their message which they want to convey. They're trying to teach us something. Something greater than ourselves.
By way of this instrumental monologue, these aliens project a sense of peace. There's no other way to describe it. Whether you're sitting on a chair in front of a computer or laying down on your bed, these galactic mothers of sound creation will capture and captivate you. They will funnel their way to your ears, through your mind and eventually into your heart.

There's no doubt about it, Two Hundred Bars are here to stay and if they continue on this path, on which they began, it'll be just a matter of time until E.T. and his buddies decide to look us up.
