BLUES CONTROL - local flavor LP, Siltbreeze




“Local Flavor is the fantastic newest shimmer from BLUES CONTROL. While past releases have been beauteous extrapolations into the miasmic core of psychedelia and billowing fog of ambient space, Local Flavor is the one where all the chickens have come home to roost. The opening track “Good Morning” is practically a sideways step into boogie rock (horn accompaniment provided by none other than JESSE TRBOVICH and KURT VILE); with the proper seismic shift, it could almost be heard as an alternate reality take on “Re-make/Re-model.” Its easily the bands longest stomp in the forest of rock since their debut cassette, and, man, them boots leave a bruise! The remaining three tracks morph and ebb harmoniously-in true Blues Control fashion-the timbre occasionally elegiac, yet more often riffing on a plane that has yet to be transcribed.”
