Still Alive - Album Release Party 11.14.2017
Singer/songwriter and Fieldhouse recording artist Fred Argir is releasing Still Alive, his sixth album in eight years. Still Alive maintains the alternative rock focus of Argir's previous albums, and incorporates heavier blues elements to make this his most guitar-focused album yet.
This focus is particularly evident in the guitar solos. “The End,” for example, has an absolutely blistering one that wouldn't sound out of place in a Stone Temple Pilots song. The same can be said of the album's title track, as well as “Preachers In the Square,” both of which have a swirling, layered guitar sound with an obvious blues influence and an almost neo-psychedelic feel, again echoing Stone Temple Pilots. This can be said of the album as a whole, and whether you're new to Argir's music or already a fan, you'll be impressed by his mastery of this style.
Along with Argir's solid guitar work, the drums on Still Here are worthy of much praise. While Argir plays virtually every other instrument you'll hear on this album, the live drumming comes courtesy of Derek Abrams, aka the current drummer for Ministry. Consequently, there's a bigger and more obvious drum sound here than Argir's previous work, albeit one that never overwhelms the mix.
To celebrate the release of Still Here, Argir will be throwing an album release party on Tuesday, November 14th at the Bitter End in NYC's West Village. Fred will be joined by special guests B'Anka Brown and Rob Cannillo.
