CD Review: Claude Hay Rollercoaster

Claude Hay – Rollercoaster (independent)

Claude Hay has a lot going on under his hat, which he’s seemingly thrown in the ring with the release of Rollercoaster. The rockier parts of the album are like hooks from Jack White with space between notes that hit as hard as the riffs themselves. Aside from the upbeat tunes like What it Takes and Roller Coaster which work so well live, Claude’s 6-stringed third arm also knows how to slow it down, and take you to porch-town with some beautiful blues.

His lyrics pang of protest, and having seen these songs live in Katoomba with full band recently I realise the slick production is no hocus pocus - this is actually just a super-tight band. Get on board, Claude’s fun fair is a trip worth taking - surpassing blues, rock or 90s grooves, he’s a DIY guy with a genre unto himself.
