Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.: Horse Power
“Nothing But Love,” on Horse Power, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.’s latest release begins as a soft slow acoustic guitar tune full of undulating slightly reggae dub that spirals into fuzzy electric guitars and cottony soft vocals. Within the make up of Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. there is great attention placed on lyric power and springy tracks with tons of charming quirk and heavy drums. The outcome is a delectable combination of mellow harmonies over stealthy placed low end drums. The heavy machinated beats are placed neatly around chipper melodies or down tempo tunes. Joshua Epstein and Daniel Zott are Detroit natives who have enhanced their coastal acoustics with percussive power which comes to little surprise during the remake of the Beach Boy’s “God Only Knows,” a stripped down guitar plucked super sweet version full of nice sonic psychedelia. With Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr’s touch, the song disintegrates awesomely into a galactic space lullaby. Winsome beat enhancing gems of acoustics and electronics is just enough for this duo’s interesting dynasty.
