After four years of honing her skills in the Australian outback, guitar goddess Abbe May is set to destroy the entire rock world. Her new solo album Design Desire is bursting with the most righteous and gnarly blues-laced guitar sound this side of the White Stripes and the Pack a.d., drifting majestically beneath honest, take-no-prisoners vocals dripping with tasteful effects. This record is destined to break 2011 wide open with truth-bombs. The proof is in the video for the record’s title track, with an rising scale guitar line, deliciously teased bridge and half-time break down, and reverb laden vocals. Heavy, man.
