4 stars Chrome Hoof made their Cuneiform debut this year with their fourth studio album, "Black Gold". I had never heard of the band before but it took only one listen to convince me that they were a band that I needed to pay some more attention to!

I am not entirely sure what Chrome Hoof is supposed to be; in their pictures they come off as some sort of crazy 50s-futuristic space crew. They are a large ensemble that by this album have nine full time members. And although they make interesting, unique music with varied instrumentation, they have in no way forgotten their audience in their compositions. The band has a clear sense of how to write a song with big hooks, and tracks like "Knopheria" and "Tortured Craft", with their disco-meets-prog magic, really sell this band as a different act. It is hard to single out any band member as they are all fantastic but I feel like props must be given to Chan Brown for her wonderful vocals - she really has great control of her voice and it helps guide the listener through the soundscapes the music forms.

Recommended for listeners who want to have fun while listening to their weird music and who aren't afraid of the Dark Side of the 70s
