Quite an action packed album from Greek musician Kostis Chaveles that mixes cagey rock n roll with atmospheric dynamics. The vibrant sounds of “Marionette” set the pace with it’s mysterious undertones and Chaveles hypnotic vocal stance. The dark guitar sounds and galloping drums on stand out tracks like “Illusion” and “A Mad Tea Party” bring to mind classic 90’s bands like Throwing Muses and Afghan Whigs while the melodic filled “Run” has a more uplifting spirit to it. “My Apple Pie” seems to combine all of Chaveles best aspects at once as it takes you on a roller coaster ride that really shows off his stellar song writing ability and guitar chops in top form. Overall “A Mad Tea Party” is a highly enjoyable album from start to finish that leaves me looking forward to what’s next from this promising new artist.
