STEWXRT

Finding My Way (self-released)

By • Feb 5th, 2021 • Category: Album review

STEWXRT is a young guy from Oban and this album was released late last year (seems BM is a bit behind!). The tracks are mainly raps based on guitar riffs and display a lot of innovation and insight. There’s a lot of self-awareness and probably autobiography from a clearly very talented musician…

The themes are fairly downbeat, exploring isolation, hopelessness, and quite a lot of booze!

Highlights for BM on this seven track offering are probably ‘Lightbulbs’ and the title track. STEWXRT has a really good flow and the lead lines and choruses recall some early Stanley Odd numbers – high praise indeed from this reviewer.

As with everything in 2021 it is a crying shame there are no live gigs available but BM hopes that this guy can rock some place sometime soon, the Corran Halls await!
