Songwriter Eric Waxwood conjures an aggressive old-style sound on his National Steel Guitar. Scott Pittman (drums) and Matthew Murphy (bass) drive the rhythm section, while Jim Clifford adds harmonica, hoots, and hollers. Combined, it’s an alchemy of old and new, a reverence for Delta Blues greats such as Son House and Charlie Patton. But don’t get it twisted, this isn’t some precious museum piece. It’s get up, shake and dance music—a hardcore boogie.
