Next in line were the charming lads of NAMOOWOLF DOWNS. This local folk band really does produce some magical sounds; the phrase used by one audience member to describe the group’s opening song (of guitar, vocals and drums) was a “tame, acoustic acid trip”. Every component of the band sat really nicely together. The growing audience sat, captivated by front man Andrew Strika – his crystal clear vocals never missed a note, delivering each song better than the last. Drummer Timothing Battrezz utilized all parts of the drum kit, resulting in a very percussive and unusual sound, which helped to bring out a curious element of the group’s sound. Bassist of the night Ben McDonald effectively filled out the songs, as did second guitarist Trim Trammer, who added some light solos and characteristic twangs. If hypnotizing the audience is what Namoowolf Downs is aiming for, then it definitely succeeded. The band’s warm stage presence was felt throughout the room. A very heartening experience. - Space Ship News


'Recession Sessions' to be released 2010-2011



Life is swell. Namoowolf Downs are a four piece act, hailing from Perth. The band consists of smooth vocals, delivered by the very same man who plays the soul-plucked acoustic guitar. Electric guitar that screams at times but then drops to a point where it gives it that sensitivity and tenderness. Bass which keeps the groove line strong and drums which explore interesting sounds of the drum kit. Together they take the subtleties of their music to point, that fills out the vision held by these 4 people.

The differences in musical backgrounds within the creative nucleus add to the orgy of elements within the music. For instance, a drummer that takes a large interest in the creations (musical) of Frank Zappa but respecting the boundary of acoustic pop; A singer that enjoys the full scope of Radiohead’s tones and dynamic but with a love of music in the major scale. A satisfying result has equated from this mix, songs that are well written, rhythmically interesting, lusciously melodic and simple enough for any “Wolf Citizen” to pause for a moment and enjoy.

While still seeing the early stages of its life Namoowolf Downs have played at a variety of Perth music venues and private parties (including one at a Lawn Bowls Club) and held a month long residency. In this time they have supported some of the finer Perth acts, 'Boom! Bap! Pow!' The Harlequin League etc.

However their scopes are set high in anticipation of the release of their debut Album in late 2010. This has additional instrumentation with some guest appearances from members of local Perth bands Special Brew, The Typhoons and Schvendes. Life is surely swell take a stroll sometime through Namoowolf Downs.
