L/O/N/G – American Primitive (2011)

Posted by Zorn on May 30, 2011 with No Commentsas

Those with passion for edgy alt.country and Neil Young in vinegary acoustic-rock mode need only know Chris Eckman (the Walkabouts, the innovative Sahara blues-influenced band Dirt Music) is one of those behind this occasionally churning, electro-rock outing with musicians from Slovenia where he now lives. The other prime mover is Rupert Huber (of the European downbeat electronica outfit Tosca) who feels a similar sense of displacement.With a chorus of women offering the spooky backdrop behind the keening and sharp guitar on Land of the Lost, groove-riding instrumentals which deliver a sense of unease (Longitude Zero has distant ululations and sinuous Vocoder) and titles like Wrong Train Comin’ .

Chip Taylor – Rock & Roll Joe (2011)

Posted by Zorn on May 27, 2011 with No Commentsas

The idea for Rock and Roll Joe began during Chip Taylor’s Scandinavian tour of 2007. As Chip traveled through Norway and Sweden with his longtime friend and guitarist John Platania, new protege fiddler Kendel Carson, drummer Bryan Owings and bass player Ron Eoff, they talked about everything. But many of the conversations revolved around the musicians that they knew and respected and Chip realized that most music fans didn’t really know the people who were behind many of the great records of the last 60 years.

It’s a riveting […]

Drive By Truckers – Gangstabilly (1998)

Posted by Zorn on May 2, 2011 with No Commentsas

The Drive By Truckers have released three great rock albums in Southern Rock Opera, Decoration Day and The Dirty South but they didn’t start out like that. Gangstabilly is their first album and the sound is completely different from the three aforementioned “rawk” classics. Here we are listening to a band which is more than […]
