CD Review: The Music Of Southpaw Steel 'n' Twang Put You In A "Stat(u)e Of Mind"

Finnish trio, Southpaw Steel 'n' Twang return with a brand new studio titled "Stat(u)e Of Mind." It features fourteen exciting new tracks of spaghetti western, California surf, country/rock instrumentals mixed with a few vocal highlights as this band continues to evolve into a underground music force.

Beginning with a short one-minute acoustic instrumental, Southpaw Steel 'n' Twang are ready to take you on an adventure with the sweeping feel of "Gentle Storm" as guitarist Ville Leppanen works in the steel and electric guitars. The energy picks up with the high-powered drumming of Tero Mikkonen in "Aloha Garage" and the driving bass line of JP Monkkonen for "Route 68." The band plays around with the surf guitar instrumental "Hooverville" and then displays the blues of "Something," before finishing up with the Hawaiian island flavor of "Almost Too Beautiful" and the rockabilly groove of "Sergio."

Southpaw Steel 'n' Twang have about a dozen shows line-up in Europe. To find out more about their new album "Stat(u)e Of Mind," please visit
