Ornament and Crime – Burglaries

Wednesday 17th, August 2016 / 15:26

The first impression a person gets after a listen of rock duo Ornament and Crime is, “Man, these guys REALLY like the White Stripes!” Guitarist Tom Hudson’s guitar sound is gritty and bluesy, and Suzy King’s drums smash with simple, danceable grooves. Burglaries, Ornament and Crime’s latest release, is fun and a wee bit more adventurous (just a wee bit) than their previous outings.

“Mrs. Channelnine” is a standout track. It’s catchy and danceable. Hudson’s vocals almost evoke Les Claypool, if Les Claypool was fronting your favorite Detroit guitar and drum duo.

The penultimate track, “Mouse,” features a bizarre carnival organ and King stands out with her spooky 1930s vocals. The duo heads out there a little more, and it’s great; this track evokes the spirit of a vaudevillian, rock’n’roll seyonce.

Other influences are evident on Burglaries too. “Mr. Porter” features Hudson with spoken vocals in the style of Devo or the Talking Heads. These influences add a dose of humor to the mix, which is a good thing.

Ornament and Crime have a lot to offer. Burglaries offers good, old-fashioned bluesy rock and is a good time. The one thing holding this band back is their clear devotion to the White Stripes. More exploration would transform this rock duo into a force to be reckoned with.
