Info for Give It Back To You
L.A.-based buzz band The Record Company releases „Give It Back to You“. The rock/roots trio has already been hailed by LA Weekly for making bluesy music that would sound more at home in a sweaty, backwoods Mississippi juke joint, while Time Out Los Angeles has described their sound as reminiscent of some of the best acts of the 50s and 60s like if John Lee Hooker and the Stooges had a well-behaved love child.
The comparisons are apt.
"We have been influenced by early electric blues, so some of that influence certainly shows," acknowledges Vos. "But we're just as influenced by bands like the Stones and The Stooges as we are by blues legends like Hooker, Muddy Waters and Jimmy Reed."
Wherever it comes from, Vos, Stiff and Cazorla have clearly come up with a fresh take on classic rock 'n' roll that has proven appeal. The Record Company has developed a reputation as a live act worthy of sharing the stage with such top attractions as B.B. King, Grace Potter, Trombone Shorty, Buddy Guy, Charles Bradley, Robert Randolph, The Wood Brothers, Social Distortion, and Blackberry Smoke with whom they toured the U.K. and across Europe.
"Our sound has a lot of early rock n' roll but with a greater emphasis on the drums and bass," says Vos. "We aim to make the speakers move with our recordings."
The group writes, rehearses, records and mixes all of its music in the same living room in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Los Feliz where it originated.
"It all comes from our desire to write the best songs we can--and the most honest music that we can," says Vos. "We try to mix in different elements to keep it fresh. For example, our song 'On the Move' has just harmonica, bass, and drums with no guitar. 'Don't Let Me Get Lonely' has all acoustic instruments--including acoustic bass--to capture more of the rockabilly vibe that we dig, that is in so much of the stuff we listen to."
The themes and stories in the lyrics of the songs are all draw from the threesome's collective experiences.
"They are just stories we wanted to tell," Vos continues. "They can be simple or complex, depending on what the music is calling for. Music and melody usually precede the lyric for us."
He notes, too, that each of The Record Company members play several instruments both live and on record.
"We work hard to incorporate them into the music as creatively as possible," he says. "So besides the typical guitar, bass and drums, we also mix in harmonica, dobro slide, lap slide, pedal steel, piano, etc. It's about making the right choices for the songs and keeping things as engaging as possible throughout the album--without compromising the integrity of the song."
"Off the Ground" is the first single from Give It Back to You.

The Record Company
is a blues/rock trio based in Los Angeles. Steeped in the classic sounds of Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker along with the jump of Howlin Wolf, The Record Company have burst on to the scene in just a very short time. While never trying to simply emulate the great masters, the band have found their own fresh take on the music and can best be described as a group giving a nod in 2012 to a timeless artform.
