Australian musical artist Slide Milligan has just released his astonishing debut album, and right now, it’s all we can talk about. Titled ‘Blood Red River’, the new record encompasses the story of a striving artist, one who put aside his musical dreams in order to build a trade in rural fencing and woodworking.
A wonderfully autobiographical piece, the album is the culmination of years of hard work and persistence for Slide, encapsulating years of writing music and building a collection of songs. Now at the age of fifty-two, Milligan has finally turned his life’s dream into a marvellous display of talent, proving that good things always come in time.
Both an album and a work of art, Slide’s debut record is comprised of twelve tracks that possess a timeless and wonderfully organic rock sound. The album infuses vibes from Americana, blues, folk, and progressive rock music styles for a distinct and promising sonic forum that works brilliantly in making Slide’s ideas come to life.
Built on Slide’s impressive musicianship and vocal performance, the album shines through tracks like ‘Feelin’ Fine’, ‘Tomorrow’s Yesterday’, ‘Deep Blue Sea’ and the textured title track, offering a brilliant psychedelic sound that will have you enraptured right until the very end.
With plenty of praise and attention already, ‘Blood Red River’ has already become a breakthrough masterpiece in its own right, seamlessly incorporating hard rock elements with an authentic Australian sound. Stream it above via Spotify, and make sure you follow Slide on his social media pages below.
