Blues Control: OldEnuff2KnoBetta: The Mixtape (self-released, 2016)October 26, 2016 at 10:10 pm | Posted in Reviews | Leave a comment
Friends of WCBN Lea Cho and Russ Waterhouse sent over their newest release, this mixtape which is essentially a home-recorded live set, recorded in one take two months ago. From the onset, the new material is way more uptempo than they’ve ever been before, with acid-rock guitar soloing over bouncy techno beats. They revisit “Iron Pigs” from their last album, then they’re back to new spirit-techno jams. “Pillowtalk” is a little slower and has some Gregorian chanting buried under the pianos and wavy echo. “Tangier (1001 Night Mix)” is an extra-fun updated version of the highlight of 2009’s Local Flavor. A must-grab free download available from their website!
