One thought on “Motor Sister: Get Off-2022.

    Seven years afters its debut album Ride, hard rock side project Motor Sister is back with its second output Get Off. The huge difference between the debut and the sophomore release is that the former only consisted of Mother Superior covers while the latter actually features new material. Soundwise however, both albums sound very similar to each other. This release here sounds as if it had been recorded live in a garage with raw but melodic lead vocals, occasional passionate and soulful female vocals, heavily distorted guitar sounds, low pumping bass guitar patterns and tight drums. The genuine rock ‘n’ roll spirit transmitted by this simple old-school production is at least as great as the actual song material here.

    ”Can’t Get High Enough” kicks the record off with lots of sweating energy in form of grinding guitar play, tight rhythm section, rough male vocals and occasional female vocals adding a brighter side to the catchy chorus. The song has rightfully been chosen as first single and opens the record with a bang as it clocks in just above the three-minute mark. This album contains several other tunes of this quality such as the pissed-off ”Right There, Just Like That” that opens with ”The world’s gone to fucking hell and we’re making rock ‘n’ roll!” Seriously, can there be a cooler start to a rock song than that? This tune gets into my next rock and metal party playlist on Spotify for sure.

    The band however also has a fewer calmer songs which are usually power ballads that are significantly longer than the rock that form the majority on this output. ”Sooner or Later” is the kind of country rock song that could be played to close some nostalgic diner as the tough trucker has a dance with the lonesome waitress. Yep, this song might be simple but it has that certain something and could be used in the soundtrack of some American road movie for sure. Another song that fits right in this category would be ”Pain” that is a little bit gloomier and slower. This one could have been from a Foo Fighters record from the nineties for instance. That’s not going to be everyone’s cup of tea but I think it offers a nice surprising change on the album.

    One last noteworthy song that has to be mentioned is ”Bulletproof”. This might be one of the shortest tracks on the album but there are a lot of things going on. Instrumentally, this song sits on the thin line between hard rock and punk rock music that could have been released back in the seventies. The middle section however is almost progressive with dramatic string sections, dynamic drum play and bumblebee bass guitar sections. The final result sounds a little bit as if the late Meat Loaf had discovered punk rock. This song is certainly my personal highlight on this output, so make sure to give it a spin.

    At the end of the day, Motor Sister’s Get Off offers twelve songs and forty-two minutes of honest hard rock music that is best enjoyed while going on a road trip in the summer time. So stop reading this review, purchase this album, take your car and drive someplace you have never been before.
