Play Carmen Gomes, Inc.’s latest album, Ray! [Sound Liaison SL1052A; DXD], and the sheer intimacy of Gomes’s voice, accompanied by no more than guitar, bass and drums – or indeed just bass on ‘The Sun Is Gonna Shine Again’ – makes for a compelling listen, the amp working with source and speakers to give a real ‘artists in the room’ effect.

There’s no overt ‘hi-finess’ here, but instead an honest, rich and enveloping sound from boogie to sweeping orchestra to sultry jazz. While some will wish for more power, a headphone socket, or even a functioning USB input, the 404 Reference still offers a refreshing alternative to amplifiers with more obvious physical size and swagger.
