Jaye Foucher: Contagious Grooves

AAJ Staff By

Jaye Foucher is back with more killer guitar. She beats her previous release, Infectious Licks hands down. Foucher is as smokin’ on the frets as ever. There is a harder, fuller sound at times with more crunch and low end but all the furious fretwork layered in here and there is superb. Song compositions are well-thought and do not fall prey to the curse of pentatonic-scaled, auto-rock, riffland. This is guitar rock with brainy fingers versus auto-shred and its insipid boredoms. Foucher is a comfortable listen, a guitarist’s guitarist and obviously dedicated to her art and an avid promoter of guitar-driven rock in its more progressively headier modes.

Check her out on "Zombieland", Metallica move outta da way, Jaye is here. Another great release from Jaye! A fun riff-ride. Avoid the doldrums of shred and check out Foucher. Need I mention she is one gem among the hard rockin’ axe-boys? Well, she is and her riffs are solid proof. Oh yeah, no vocals this time . . .

Track Listing: : 1. What Comes Around; 2. Angst; 3. Zombieland; 4. Surreality; 5. Beginnings; 6. Up Up & Insane; 7. My Own Abyss; 8. Transition; 9. The Untamed; 10. Hippo Groove
