Legendary guitarist Robby Krieger of iconic rock band, The Doors, is releasing his first solo album in 10 years on the 14th August 2020. ‘The Ritual Begins At Sundown’ is a ten track, all instrumental album. It’s set for release on The Player’s Club, part of the Mascot Label Group.
Ahead of the album release, Krieger has released a music video for the album track, ‘Hot Head’ on his YouTube channel.
The video itself, is a psychedelic patchwork of disembodied hands, floating eyes, mushrooms, flowers, peacocks, flying horses and Chinese dragons. It swirls and ripples in a colourful visual pageant, suiting perfectly the vibe of the track.
The tune itself is a jazz-orientated instrumental, with the distinctive playing of Krieger backed by brass, twinkling organ work and a jazz rhythm section. There’s elements of Early Santana, Frank Zappa,( Zappa musicians feature!) Blues Train-era John Coltrane and even the Alex Skolnick Trio.
