It’s an energetic eclectic set that finds the sweet spot between soul, funk, rock, country, gospel, blues, boogie, reggae and yes, swamp . . . all supported by a strong Southern rock base. That may seem like a muddled jumble but the group weaves these influences into rugged, often playful songs with the easy interaction of an ensemble that has been playing bars and clubs for the better part of eight years. Credit veteran John Porter who produced, recorded, mixed and mastered these dozen songs. He captures the band’s vibrant, buoyant playing with a crisp sound that pulses out of the speakers. The studio recording adds occasional horns, female backing vocals, fiddle and banjo and feels like a particularly peppy live show. Vocals by principal songwriters Aaron Williamson and Chris Mule are committed, soulful and tough, befitting the similarly styled music. Occasionally the band displays its influences too close to the surface, as in the very Allman Brothers’ “Ramblin’ Man” sounding “Prodigal Son.” The red clay shuffle beat of “Just Another Fool” is Dylan’s “Watching the River Flow” by way of the Big Easy and “Pills” is the best song Willie Nelson has yet to record (thanks in part to guest harp from Mickey Raphael).
