Ramonda Hammer Debuts New Music At Bands In A Barbershop The Taste They Gave Us Has Me Longing For More
LOS ANGELES, CA- I’ve been high on Ramonda Hammer for a minute. Hell … I even made time to catch this L.A. based band in Austin,TX when they were showcasing at SXSW. I like this band. I like it alot <- Use Jim Carrey, Dumb & Dumber voice for effect.
Headlining the first Bands In A Barbershop of the year, and knowing that they have been in the studio recording the follow up to their highly regarded 2017 EP “Destroyers” I was hopeful to hear some of the new music they’ve been creating. My musical cravings for the evening would be satisfied.
They played a handful of fan favorites (like “Care 2 Slam”), but also threw in a couple of new songs that they had recently written. The new jams are still heavy, highlighted by Justin’s solid distorted guitars and Devin’s distinct emotive wails. Everything that endeared me to them in the first place. And watching Andy lose himself thumping out the bass lines live is always a treat … even though I feared for my face as he wildly swung his axe around the stage (maybe I shouldn’t be standing so close … lol).
The taste we got of Ramonda Hammer’s new material has me longing for the day we can hear the studio cuts. Hopefully, they’ll get that new album done and out sooner rather than later.
