Ex-Waxwing (Seattle band) frontman Rocky Votolato's third solo record is whispery and understated, full of regret but also the quiet resolve of a man looking forward to whatever's left. It's a warmer, more open record than his comparably feisty 2003 record Suicide Medicine, and upon first listen it's tempting to say he's shaved too much off the edges. Keep listening, and the music opens like cracks in a desert, split up and fractured by Votolato's dusty tales of desperation and fleeting redemption. He starts the record with "White Daisy Passing," singing lyrics like "I'm going down to sleep/On the bottom of the ocean/'Cause I couldn't let go" that contrast with the song's gentle gallop and Simon & Garfunkel aesthetics. Folk and country influences appear in the hand slap rhythm and harmonica of "Tinfoil Hats," along with the Dust Bowl dystopia of "The Night's Disguise." From the sound of Makers, Votolato's having a hard time putting his past in the past. But if he keeps putting out such lovely and evocative music, he has a solid career as a solo artist ahead of him at the very least. -Matthew CookeSoundtracked by the songs of Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash, Rocky had an unconventional upbringing on a horse ranch in Texas before his mother moved the family to Seattle. There he spent his high school years discovering the underground punk/indie scene. Inspired by bands like Fugazi, he and his brother Cody (founding member of hardcore/art combo The Blood Brothers) formed a punk band called Waxwing. Over the course of three increasingly accomplished solo albums, Rocky has matured into a truly phenomenal talent. "Makers" is an amazing album of songs that seem to have been scratched into a boxcar wall by a worn out and lonesome ghost. "Votolato has stones like Bruce Springsteen and hangover wisdom like Paul Westerberg" - Alternative Press.
