A fine, no frills Rock and Roll album.

Love And A .38 are a four-piece who all share a common goal – to play Rock 'n' Roll. They descended upon Los Angeles from different parts of the US and have been together since 2009. They put out a self-titled EP the following year and several singles over the next couple of years. They've toured the States incessantly and subsequently have built up a healthy fan-base.

'Nomads' is their first long player and was recorded and self-produced at their own Blushing Cad Studios (the touring must be paying off) in the City Of Angels. It features ten powerful and energetic tunes. Album opener and first single 'Oh My God' hits you straight in the face with its Bluesy, Rock and Roll swagger and its military style drumming courtesy of Clark Skelton. It's very representative of the album and a sign of things to come.

'Went Away' is full of attitude and wouldn't go amiss on a Velvet Revolver album. 'Abre Los Ojos' is totally Foo Fighters and regularly has passers-by thinking "who is that nutter?" when they see me bopping away to the song whilst driving to work! If you want a "raise your fist and punch the air number", then 'Big Leg Betty' is right up your street and contains a blistering guitar solo from Domo Domaracki.

'Holy War' has great vocals from Ryan Hudson whilst Domo Domaracki nails another solo! 'I Won't Wait', according to Hudson, is the band's "anthem"; a song about perseverance and defiance, which are two traits that really define what the band is about, that being big, loud and angry. He's not wrong – once again it is right in your face and totally full of attitude.

Throughout the album you can hear a bit of AC/DC here, a bit of Aerosmith there. The band are also obvious fans of Guns 'N' Roses and there are a bunch of other influences in there but this quartet have put their own stamp on these tunes and produced a fine, no frills Rock and Roll album. Final song on the album is titled 'Get It Right', and boy have they just gone and done that.
