JESUS KRYSLER: ROCK 'N' ROLL, WHAT'S THAT? (INDEPENDENT)
By The Province June 11, 2013 JESUS KRYSLER: ROCK 'N' ROLL, WHAT'S THAT? (INDEPENDENT)

What the band is aiming for is suggested by the title but, if you're going to assume the mantel of a saviour, you had better be good. For the most part, Jesus Krysler is. That is, the power trio isn't aiming high; it's just playing down and dirty rock as it understands it. On those terms, it hits a bull's eye. This is more focused than the previous album . Here, the accent is on powerful riffs, spiked by an occasional good tune (State O' Luv, She Walks), heightened the clarity of a Mike Fraser mix .

Grade: B-

Rock ’n Roll, What’s That? (Independent)

Jesus Krysler might not be doing anything new, groundbreaking, or even particularly interesting, but at least the band isn’t doing any harm. The trio of singer-guitarist and songwriter Larry Dean Jordan, bassist Chris Rhyder, and drummer Atomic Roy Lewis seems to like both kinds of music: rock and roll. Judging by the nine songs here, it’s a safe bet that Jordan’s record collection spans the years 1970 to 1979.

Jesus Krysler’s forte is riff-driven, meat-and-potatoes rock. There’s nothing wrong with that, although the meat and potatoes could use a little gravy—like, you know, hooks and stuff. The pentatonic guitar solos and four-on-the-floor rhythms are executed decently enough, but the band’s attempts at power pop don’t quite hit the mark. Even so, the chugging distorto-glam of “Spectral Moonlight” and the more-cowbell barroom stomp of “She Walks” manage to conjure a little of the gutter-trash exuberance of the New York Dolls. (You get the feeling, however, that Jordan was going for something a bit closer to Kiss.)

“She Walks” also contains what passes for lyrical cleverness in Jesus Krysler’s parallel universe, where the Me Decade never ended: “You gotta keep a cool head now/It’s hard ’cause she’s so hot.” I see what you did there, Larry Dean!

Power pop? Yep, another perfect transition, this time to the darker, glammier, psychedelic-black-light-poster-in-the-garage pop stylings of Jesus Krysler. Holy crap! Where'd this disc come from? Plopping this baby into the player and my ears were caressed, loved and fondled by the absolutely stunning "Walking in the Sun.", a fuzzed out, power pop, psychedelic treasure of the highest order. Big heavy riffs layered in more fuzz than the carpet of a cat ladies hold-in shack. Sweet and sugary, yet rough and garage-y vocals carry us to the big chorus with the urgency of a man rushing to the Emergency Room once he hits the 5th hour of a Viagra erection. Like The Seeds shagging The Beat in the backseat of Baby Woodrose's '63 convertible Caddy. Love it. Simply love it. The touch of female harmony vocals was genius to texture the song. "Another Ride," roughs things up as it drags me along the pavement on the back of its scratchy riff and propulsive bass. "The Roadie," adds a bit more sensitivity to the proceedings than I expected with it's sweet acoustic guitars telling the tale of woe on the road, while "All Alone," is as sweet as a Setting Son gem. If these names wet your mucous membranes, check Jesus Krysler out, and prepare for the onslaught of mighty pop-punk mania that is "Cut My Brain." Ripple Music Review July 2011

Introducing Jesus Krysler

Jesus Krysler is a soulful rock trio from BC who has been steadily climbing in to the indie music spotlight. With no prescribed formula, the group comprises skillful guitar work with solid classic song structure and has put forth a strong second album with their newly release ‘Shades of Soul’. From driven rock tunes to mellow blues offerings, the album’s ballads also translate in to the live show.





For a band who says “Feel, passion and arrangement are the only rules…”, Jesus Krysler has seen great success over the past year. Gaining massive fan support through the Fox Vancouver Seeds competition and Supernova.com, the band has seen radio play and is getting noticed – mainly because they work hard to make every live experience a lasting one for fans. Teaming up with other local bands like 22nd Century, Helmzdeep and Blackburnx, the ‘Shades of Soul’ CD launch party was a huge success.

Jesus Krysler - Walkin' in the Sun



Jesus Krysler soon returned to play The Roxy and has kept building on their experience with plans to record new material in 2011. They’ll be playing Tonic Night Club in Vancouver this Fri Sept 24th, promising to bring something new as they feature the Redrick Sultan horn section (cool!)

With so much happening on the horizon for this tireless independent band, Supernova was glad to grab an interview with the founder, Larry – you know, before he’s too famous for us!

Introducing Jesus Krysler:

Brian 'Grover' Groff - Bass and bg vocals, congas

'Atomic' Roy Lewis - Drums

Larry Dean Jordan - Vox and Guitars

Besides yourselves, what would you say makes Jesus Krysler unique?

With a 3 piece you want rhythm and to be able to provide different melodies and harmonies to keep it interesting. By composing our own music, each member contributes to sound and feel of each song that is to compliment or supplement the riff or the mood of the piece. Everybody in Jesus Krysler is fun and casual.

It shows! How would you describe your band’s sound?

We have been labeled Vancouver's Blues Metal Messiahs!. Back beat with hard pulsating rock and vocal harmonies... Most importantly we are story tellers and have something to say... Mainly, positive vibe stuff, love, inspiration, hope!We like groove and guitars (dirty and clean when the time arises) and have an interesting take on life lyrically and vocally.

What is the most rewarding thing about being in a band?

Achieving and accomplishing something musically. Writing songs, recording the sound-scape at that point in time and performing live!

What made you want to pursue music full time?

When we were getting paid in bars to play and all had fake IDs...

Hehe... Who would you most like to tour with?

Joe Satriani, Lennie Kravitz, KISS, Priestess, Hail the Villain, Danko Jones!, Offspring, Nickleback, Theory of a Deadman, Rev Theory, Neil Young, Black Hat Villian or SOB.

What brought you to the Fox Vancouver Seeds competition?

Heard it on the radio and we were just finishing up our 2nd album, 'Shades of Soul' and thought we would enter 3 tracks and reintroduce ourselves.





What do you think of the 'fan driven' Fox Vancouver Seeds website from Supernova.com?

I can't say enough about it! We garnered over 900 fans/bands/friends with the portal and people that we could not have normally met or played for, got to listen to our music (as well as so many other talent artists in the contest) in such a short time.

By having a few laughs and getting to know some of the other bands online, we have been able to be working around town a lot at some of the lower mainlands great rock clubs. CFOX and Supernova have provided a portal for the next wave of great rock bands to network and promote. CFOX noticed us and played the track Another Ride before the furious five @ five with Todd and Karen. That was really cool and makes it feel all worthwhile when you get some airtime.

Totally! So what is your band’s ultimate goal this year?

To play a lot of shows and meet and hear some more cool bands; and build a bigger fan base in Vancouver and Canada. Also keep the notes and ideas up to prep for recording more material in January in preparation for Seeds 2011.

Awesome! Is there anything else that new listeners should know?

We put on a great live show and have fun with simple guitar, bass and drums. We are artists and passionate about our music, love all music, and are enthusiastic about life and want to share the love.

Our beat is danceable and we like to groove out... Lyrically is where we think we are clever, but who knows how people interpret your music. People have said that we are energetic, like firecrackers and the enthusiasm is contagious...Kool.

"Yea ya told me, To find out who I am
Time to weed your garden, and grow whatch - Supernova

THE JESUS KRYSLER FIVE

Jesus Krysler's unfussy brand of rock 'n' roll probably goes down a storm in a bar if the album Shades of Soul is an indication. The Garage tracked down Larry Jordan about his trio's current five favourite things.

1. Mongolie Beef and Noodles at the Shanghai Chinese Bistro on Thurlow.

2. Travelling this summer to New York, San Francisco and Edmonton.

3. Safety meetings in Whistler.

4. The thunderous bottom end of our snoring.

5. As far as tunes, we like everything, but right now this is what is getting spun: Grover is enjoying Michael Franti and Spearhead, Atomic Roy is into Rick Dufay & Jimi Crespo, and LJ is groovin on Danko Jones, Slash and Black Hat Villain.

Bio

Jesus Krysler is an energetic and soulful rock power-trio from Vancouver, British Columbia who has been steadily climbing into the indie music spotlight in Canada. The band has released their 3rd album, mixed by Mike Fraser and mastered by Chris Potter, entitled, "ROCK 'N ROLL, WHAT'S THAT?". Available on iTunes and at live shows.

The first single, SPECTRAL MOONLIGHT, is up on Youtube. The guys rocked out with the crowd at the famous Fairview Pub on Broadway in Vancouver. The idea was to have fun and laugh and feel the groove of the positive vibe. It was a great night and we have dedicated the video to the staff and club.

Jesus Krysler enjoys playing with groups of all genres and have made lots of friends and fans that love to listen and dance to music as match as they do. The band is influenced by all kinds of music and performers and the art form is simply guitar, bass and drums.

Jesus Krysler is submitting EPK's and connecting through Facebook and Twitter to reach out to fans, music press, radio for the new record and has lofty goals of performing right across Canada, the US and Europe. What is rock 'n roll, you ask? Check out the west coast indie blues metal messiahs, JESUS KRYSLER.
