Alison Krauss has the voice of an angel. She generally has worked her craft in the area of new bluegrass, progressive bluegrass, or music of Appalachia. Not a traditionalist but certainly doesn't run from the tradition either. Her new album "Windy City" caught my interest because I had heard it was more a traditional country album and not a new grass album. And after 18 years without releasing a solo album I had to give this one a listen. Typically country is not on my list of things to listen to especially that shit coming out of Nashville now. I would say the traditional country of Cash, Carters, Williams, and music of Appalachia either bluegrass or flat picking is something I enjoy.

On "Windy City" Krauss as always makes the cover songs her own with a respectful treatment and caring love that comes across with a passion that Krauss delivers every time. Early in the year but I have to say right now this is my favorite album for 2017 so far. If you like great music this is a must have.The track "I never cared for you" written by Willie Nelson, shows how Krauss can bring something new to a song and truly make it her own. Not much to say about this one as the proof of how good of an album this is, is in the listening.

After going thru a stretch of not finding much of anything that impressed me; seems the tide has turned and finding loads of really good shit. I mean the shit that just kicks you in the guts and makes you want more. Beth Hart does that every time. She has got a big voice that goes from Janis Joplin type growling and in a N.Y. thinstance she can be some kind of smokey voiced lounge singer. This bitch be crazy in live performances. Check out her performance at the Paridiso, she is a real rock n' roll chick and you better be man enough to stand your ground or else you will get fucked.

Anyways check her out on her latest album "Fire On The Floor" Beth Hart runs the entire range of her vocal ability on this one.

Mastodon are back roaming the earth with power and might of all things riffy and with great riffness like the days of old.
Ok this one isn't the usual fare by the mighty Mastodon but catchy as hell, fun in a dark way, and again shows Mastodon stretching themselves musically. Just finished listening to their new album "Emperor of Sand" Just confirms why in the last 13 years since the mighty "Leviathan" they are one of my favorite bands.

Two 'fer Tuesday! Saw both of these artist over the summer and they are excellent live performers who can whip a crowd into a blues frenzy, make them mellow with a slow burner and then wind them up again with some electrifying guitar playing.

Ronnie Baker Brooks hailing from Chicago and son of the famous Lonnie Brooks. His latest album is "Times Have Changed" and yes they have after his 11 year hiatus from the studio. Ronnie has a decent soulful voice, not anything that is going to rock the world, make you cry or shout "oh Lawdy" but he gets the job done in a more than satisfactory way. Where he excels is on the guitar and delivering great entertaining music that is accessible, familiar yet not trite, and of course giving it his own tone for just the right touch. Honestly there isn't anything here that is going to shake up the world but what there is; is, 11 tracks of enjoyable listening that will keep you coming back for more if you love the blues induced with a little soul.

Two tracks I really like off this album, one a typical call response type blues and the other a retro funky 70's Curtis Mayfield styled piece.

Part 2 of the 2 'fer.

Kenny Neal once again brings his whole family into his latest offering "Bloodline". Hailing from Naw' Ol'ans, Louisiana, Kenny Neal is no city slicker, He is country all the way. He delivers his blues in a very casual way, easy going, as if to humbly understate his own talents. This is an extremely talented and accomplished performer who could easily make every thing on every one of his albums all about him and pull it off in a spectacular exercise of self indulgence. Instead he chooses to incorporate the sound of the band right in the forefront as their sound is just as important to the overall experience of the music as his own guitar, harmonica or singing. It just works together well. Not Neal's best offerings but it is in the typical Neal fashion good hardy blues fare that doesn't disappoint. A nice variety of sounds, from a typical blues horn section, gospel style background singing, slow burning blues country ballads, and uptempo numbers that will get your foot stomping.

Here is the title track and the Neal family having a "boil". If you never been to a "boil" in Lousiana you don't know shit about Lousiana.

Haven't touched this in sometime. I am sure all the audiophiles are hanging on my every post in this thread and need my guidance to find music worth listening to. If that is the case truly a testament to your useless sad fucking life, much like my continued posting here is to my own sad shitty existence.

Really haven't been in the mood to listen to music lately...story for another time and another moan session. Just lets say when things go to shit music isn't my go to remedy. Not that things are any better just absolute boredom sets in and slowly but surely I start finding myself scrolling thru the gigabytes of music on my phone. So getting to it...

Deep Purple latest "InFinite" may be the swan song for this lot. If it is then it isn't a bad way to go out. The consistency of this album from start to finish is a testament to the maturity of musicianship the group has achieved. Honestly there isn't anything earth shattering or stretching things in a new direction, in fact it is the opposite. More of an appreciation and nod to the stuff that interested them and most likely they have come to have a greater appreciation for as the members themselves have aged. I don't think they are resting on their laurels either, the chemistry and strength of a cohesive unit is all there to craft a fine bit of listening that one can come back to again and again. I really like the prog sound they implement but not in a self indulgent grandiose way, but just a nod to something they probably like themselves. On top of that they add a nice boogie crunchy sound that makes the whole thing fun.

Even tho one can tell that age has effected Gillan's vocals he finds a way to sing to his strengths and make the whole thing work in what isn't his finest performance but a mature performance in knowing what makes music work. As if he understands their is more to singing than a screaming testosterone bare chested machismo hair flipping freak of the 70's (granted few did that better than him back in the day).

Certainly worth a purchase and a minimum worth a listen.

Black Star Riders formed from the bare bones of what was left of Thin Lizzy that was walking dead for years without Lynott. For me Lynott was Thin Lizzy in sound and spirit. So credit to the remaining lads to piss off and form another band for the release of new material and not use the Thin Lizzy name as a vehicle to market some mediocre bullshit that isn't obviously "Thin Lizzy".

With that said, I admit I was wrong about one thing, Black Star Riders is more than just mediocre bullshit on the latest release "Heavy Fire". It is a fun, loud, and kick you in the nutsack for a laff kind of listen. Ok you can hear a familiar resonance of "Thin Lizzy" but what do you suspect this is Thin Lizzy in essence so certain signature sounds are to be expected. But this isn't aping or ripping off someone else sound, simply this is who they are and have become over the years. So it was nice to hear familiar sounds in a retro rock tapestry yet there was enough different to make it interesting and contemporary enough not to make it dated. The vocals at times sound like Lynott but that is all due to the same tone in the voice working the familiar vocal range we attribute to Lynott. But Warwick can't come close to performance of Lynott; he just doesn't have the sensitivity, sincerity, passion or conviction one finds in Lynott's singing. Warwick is good as straight ahead hard rock singer nothing else.

I particularly liked the harder straight ahead rockers of "Heavy Fire". OTOH the ballads not so much, not horrible just don't think Warwick voice is very good and sounds too over produced which in turn washes out the vulnerability and inflections that comes across in a non auto tuned vocal. Good listen on a road trip with friends as plenty of anthem type rockers to keep the spirits high as the miles on the road pass by.

This one the Thin Lizzy sound is coming thru strong. Catchy enough tune.

Title track and more of an e.g. I think of the best stuff on the album.

Time to dust it off and a fine way to to do it is with one of the best albums I have heard this year so far. Southern Avenue on the self titled debut release. I love this chicks voice and vocal approach. Straight ahead unabashed Soul and Gospel in the mold of Aretha Franklin, Carla Thomas, Etta James etc, etc, etc. This record sounds like it easily could have been recorded at the Stax studio in Memphis back in 1960 something. Yet it does more than hold its own with contemporary recordings. In fact it throws down the gauntlet and exclaims this is no retro throw back shit, it is a revival of a true great American art form, the blending of Gospel, Soul and Blues spawning R&B. This is the sound of R&B that I have always loved. This shit that passes for R&B today is devoid of Gospel and Blues, it isn't passionate, tender, vulnerable, no it is just a cesspool of tepid mediocre piss backed by sterile music. Southern Avenue on the other hand takes the original R&B template fills it up with decent musicians, very good vocals, solid song writing, and brings it to the listener with passion as if they actually give a fuck about what they are doing.

This is an album that well deserves to be in your collection if you like good music.

A quicky here, check this Justin Johnson out interesting stuff. It is amazing the sounds this guy produces with all these different guitars. Just released an album this year "Drivin' It Down". Pretty cool listen as it has the traditional blues feel but with a psychedelic, desert trippy atmosphere to it.

Have been listening to The Obsessed "Sacred" released earlier this year. Scott Wino resurrecting the band after a long hiatus from the studio with this band. In the 20 years since he has been a busy Doomster, working in about 6 different bands releasing about 2 dozen albums or so.

First listen of "Sacred" for me didn't knock my socks off but not much really does. As I continued to listen the album really grew on me. Wino voice is in decent nick, he is 56 you know. One year younger than Philth but showing no signs of slowing down and certainly showing no signs that his guitar game has diminished. Wino provides a good variety of mid tempo doom, with a couple thrashers and a couple moody slow fuzz distorted marchers. Plodding is a term often used with doom, but this is old school doom that is big crunching riffs sprinkled with guitar solos thru out with some groove thrown in to make it as funky as doom will get.

End of the day Wino shows he is still relevant in the American Doom genre, and throws down the gauntlet to prove he is what he has always been and still is: an important player in the development of American Doom crafting his own unique sound. No matter where he goes he leaves an imprint with his signature groovy fuzz distorted moody playing that has codified what American Doom is.

Full Album, enjoy

All right the year was 2000 something and where the fuck was I with my head up my ass that I didn't ever hear about The Atomic Bitchwax. Thank God for the arrival of December 2017 when I crossed paths with a tidy little album titled the "Force Field". Have to admit the first thing that made me take a lookey see was the cover, no explaining to do here. Then I read the name of the band: The Atomic Bitchwax; I was like what in the fuck is that? Sounds like some crazy beauty spa procedure conducted on Anca Zijlstra that would of course go wrong resulting in some bride of Frankenstein type terrorizing the Lakeshite......

Thankfully The Atomic Bitchwax is none of that. It is instead; the creator of a fine piece of raging speed punk stoner rock. As an aside they, like me, love sprinkling "fuck" into their rather salty language. Their latest offering "Force Field" is like a slap in the face right from the start and finishes off with a kick in the nuts all at a rate of high speed chords that leave nothing but scorched earth in their wake. And all along the way it is a great bit of bombastic fun. Listen carefully there is some fine musicianship here that is begging to be heard. Just hard to hear because it is coming in fast and hard and in under 3 minutes. It is as if they can't get to the end of the song fast enough to jump into the next blistering affair. Just when your digging the riff they are done and moved onto the next thing. Pretty much liked everything on this album and was left wanting more at the end.

A couple tracks for you cunts to give a listen to.

As a kid I remember watching Soul Train with host "...we wish you love, peace and soul" Don Cornelius way back in the 70's. Being cursed with a serious case of "white man's disease" (i.e. no sense of rhythm, can't dance, no ass and no class) I was always fascinated by the ability to dance with panache or just the simple ability to move with grace and style. I always did have a great appreciation of soul, funk and early R&B.
[youtube][/youtube]

Now back in 2018 I was fortunate to stumble across this little album by Sugaray Rayford entitled "The World That We Live In". Right from the first track I was taken back to an early time of Soul music born out of the Gospel Choirs in the black church, an era of Blaxploitation, funk and of course Soul Train. Sugaray Rayford grew up in the church choir before he set out on his own to become a soul/blues singer. No surprise as "The World That We Live In" has all the great elements of early soul music and that is the gospel singing influence that I think is completely lost in what we consider soul music today.

Rayford also brings a social element to some of his songs and those sound like they could fit into a 70's Blaxploitation film like Shaft or Superfly. Don't kid yourself tho Rayford isn't aping a sound or just tipping his hat to a personal influence. He is soaked deep into this type of music, bathed and basted into the sounds of the organ and horns, delivered with a passion that only a true child of the 70's in Black America can deliver. He doesn't have the greatest of voices but he has a sense of delivery and timing with loads of passion and style that make up for the lack of unique or powerful voice that we think of in the legends of soul.

This album was a great listen and if your into soul and feeling a little oppressed by "The Man" and tired of it, get this album, it is a great collection of music that is balanced and honed to perfection.

2 for Tuesday so buckle up and stuff yer rag ya' cunts.

Since I am in a mood, let me start off with Sheryl Crow's "Be Myself". Ms Crow if this is being yourself, for the love of God be someone else...please. That someone being the person you where on your self titled album, C'mon C'mon, or even Tuesday Night Music Club. If being yourself, as I fully expect you are on "Be Myself", then you have run out of fresh ideas and cleverness in the lyrics that whoever you were before that made your music fun, quirky, introspective, and influenced by the input of those you surrounded yourself with. What we have here is a tepid collection of cesspool shit that isn't worth spreading on the fields of Scott Mitchell's Farm. And that my friends is a fucking low standard of smelly ass feces.

It is one thing to venture into another genre, stretching yourself as an artist to pay homage to your influences like she did on say "Feels Like Home" (o.k. you tried it failed move on) it is whole other bag of stray cats to attempt to go back to what brought you to the highs of stardom and completely not implement any of the shit that actually made you an artist worth listening to or even enjoy for the sake of just having a good listen of good music. Nothing here is remotely memorable or even hooky enough to draw you back for another disinterested listen as one finds in good pop music. C'mon C'mon is the perfect e.g. of all the good stuff of a fine American roots pop album, quirky fun, big chorus, and some nice hooks, i.e. you can't help but put the top down, blasting the volume to 11, driving down the road and sing along as loudly as you can. "Be Myself" should be immediately relegated to the discount bin of hillbilly truck stops, and even then it isn't worth whatever price they may charge. 54 minutes of wasted time I will never get back. Thankfully for you, I am warning not to waste your time with this collection of piss.

The only track that shows a hint of the old Crow is "Heartbeat Away" and this is mostly bolstered by the more than adequate Doyle Bramhall II guitar playing doing what he always does in the studio, just fitting in for whatever style he is paid to perform.

#2 for the two 'fer

In juxtaposition of the previous shit, here is a group that gets what its fans want and they fucking deliver. Accept's "Rise of Chaos" a no frills, using what brought them to the metal table of the 80's, kick you in the nutsack with attitude kind of album. Accept as a band has moved ever so slightly with the times, but not enough that one would notice that vocal frontman Udo left along time ago, came back and left again, Frank on guitar, and Schwarzmann on the skins are all gone. It is rare when a frontman can be replaced that is integral to the unique sound of a band and that band can carry on doing what they always did and make it work with out skipping a beat. Tornillo on vocals has proven on the previous releases for Accept that he is just as good as Udo in delivering a metal attitude with no retreat. Here on "Rise of Chaos" he delivers as if he had always been there since the start. Accept doesn't need to change much, nor do groups like AC/DC or Motorhead, just fucking give the fans what they want no frills heavy metal that brought the fans to the fold.

From start to finish "Rise of Chaos" is everything fans have come to accept of Accept, big riffs and anthemic metal with attitude. The replacement on the skins; Williams, does a more than fine job, in fact I think his performance gives a slight update to the sound of Accept. Relentless rhythm with just the right amount of breaking time changes to keep things interesting and prelude for the guitar solos. If NWOBHM is your thing then these Germans deliver what your ears are yearning for on "Rise of Chaos". Accept is just an old school son of a bitch.
