Not sure how well they do in NYC but they would be huge here in Portland Oregon! They claim to be into playing dive bars, if they ever play outside a dive bar I think I would stop listening to them. They are so the definition of upper cool DIY alt country, prog rock, and stoner rock!
Moving on from stand out track "Little Black Heart" my favorite track on the album is "Corner of His Eye" this song gives you a real stoner rock vibe. The guitar solos which make up most of the song are jammy and prog. How do I get that song on vinyl! The vocals almost remind me of an Elvis Costello.
The name Mud, Blood & Beer is cribbed from a line in Johnny Cash’s classic “A Boy Named Sue”: “Kicking and a’ gouging in the mud and the blood and the beer “which they claim is a perfectly apt description of who we are and the music we make.
Really though this album is awesome! and who cares about the artwork the real art is the 13 original tracks! Nice work older guys (again only know this cause you posted your faces on the cover!) - xo kaytea
