Canis Majoris is the 3rd album of the 2010 formed New York based band Esquela. This female fronted band is basically playing a sorta mix between 60s rockabilly rock and roll, blues and some Americana, roots and alternative country, with even an Irish folk tune slipped through the fingers. The vocal work of singer Rebecca Frame is quite stunning, sorta reminding of Janis Joplin. Guitarist Brian Shafer was part of the 80s American Hair Metal genre, but over here it is a different kind of approach. The bluesy rock of songs like Valentine’s Day, Need Not Apply and Pine Tar are sounding quite nice and although nothing new emerges here, Esquela offers quality music.
