Album Review

"Headed South is the second album of Greasy Grapes, who are slowly breaking into new grounds in Caracas' rock n' roll scene. It's a natural progression after their debut At the Back of the Hill (2009) and the results are simply wonderful, with slick slide guitar solos and good vocal performances. The album is a very honest, organic and believable piece and it maybe doesn't have much of a Venezuelan identity, but this awesome band has more than a clear idea than any other band in Venezuela on how to play great country / rock n' roll."
