Guitarist Tash Neal, whom some fans will recognize from his work with the New York blues-rock band Souls of London, released his first solo album, Load it into the game, which arrived on Friday via Black hill records.
The guitarist and singer’s new 11-track studio effort includes previously shared singles, “All I See Is Blood,” “Something Ain’t Right,” and “Like a Glove,” the latter being produced by Black keys guitarist Dan Auerbach.
“It’s a celebration of life and a celebration of overcoming shit,” Neal said of his solo debut in a press release. “That’s what I love about the album and the title of the album, it’s such a statement. Whatever you have to face is like, load it into the game, man. I’m still here, I’m still living.

After spending the 2010s as guitarist and singer of The London Souls, Neal finally emerges in his own light on this album. It features 11 songs powered by a retro-inspired sound similar to 1970s rock and funk, but the tracks don’t sound recycled or overly ambitious. On the contrary, the songs provide a smooth listening experience from start to finish.
