    There’s been talk about this band in other threads on CRF, but they deserve their own thread.

    Blues Pills is a Swedish band who plays a combination of blues, hard rock and psychedelic rock. So far, they have released one studio album, three EPs and two singles.

    Their singer, Elin Larsson is one of the best new voices out there in my opinion. Some critics have compared her to Janis Joplin and while that is not wrong, I feel that critics play that card too often, the moment they hear a powerful voice. Elin is perfectly capable of standing on her own two feet - she rules!

    These guys stand toe to toe with the best of the recent retro wave, so if that's your kind of thing, do not miss this band!

    Saw them live last night, here in Athens. What a gig! The band is tight and sounds heavier live and Elin is just as outstanding live as she is on the record. On top of that, the venue was packed and the atmosphere was awesome!

    I hope that you'll get a chance to see them live soon, Sunny!

    Speaking of Blues Pills live, there's a new live album on the way.

    I like their sound and I really like Elin Larsson's voice, but I don't think she should be compared to Janis Joplin. Sometimes when people compare it takes on a life of it's own, and not in a good way.

    ...and live too. Saw them some months ago and they were outstanding.

    Btw, that new live album I mentioned above is a great example of their live performance. Definitely worth checking out.
