Blues Control (Queens, N.Y.)
If you think you’re getting a greasy slap bass bar band with a name like Blues Control, you’re not thinking nearly enough. Comprised of Lea Cho and Russ Waterhouse, Blues Control is the sound of a film soundtrack taking over the foreground and pushing itself into a position of primary focus. Along that continuum, you might hear Blues Control try any number of interesting musical possibilities, from straight-up blippy Electro Pop to slinky Jazz to sinewy Rock to sound sculptured ambience to spacey Psych and all points in between and beyond. Blues Control is laid-back aggression, melodic drone, joyous melancholy, contemporary classicism and earthy ethereality.
