With an album full of tightly executed tracks, Bards of Melatonia by The Melantauns is a must-have for any connoisseur of authentic New Orleans blues-rock. But this album is far more than a simple genre-based album, as several styles are presented in turn from the groovy funk of “Smoke” to the rockabilly ballad “Pool Fool” to the eighties pop influenced “Please” to the new wave rock of “Red Eye to Austin”.
