R Ring
Fallout and Fire Misra Records 7”

Article written by Ged M - Nov 20, 2012

RRing-FOAF-7cover.jpg
The debut single of Kelley Deal and Mike Montgomery of Kentucky band Ampline is class, even down to the rude fruit artwork (coquettish orange meets randy banana, by Cincinnati artist Ali Calis of Able Projects). ‘Fallout And Fire’ is made up of few ingredients but all of them flawless: a simple, twangy guitar rhythm, a goosebump-raising chorus and Kelley’s vocals. As soon as she comes in, time seems suspended and all you want to do is focus on that rich, emotive voice that’s graced so many good records before. ‘See’, sung by Mike Montgomery, ups the pace with an enervating blast of alt-rock, propelled by professional skateboarder Kristian Svitak on drums, with strange talk of a “seven-chambered heart”. My only complaint is that these tracks are so short you need to keep them on repeat; otherwise they’re perfect.
