TONIGHT’S THE NIGHT - ‘Fantastic’ Bob Harris
'Electrified Mississippi kick ass power trio blues mixed with a sludgy, jam-oriented rock thing.'
Riff driven, southern influenced roots rock shot through with essential blues influences.
Since their beginnings in the Kansas heartland a decade ago, guitarist Aaron Moreland and vocalist/harpist Dustin Arbuckle have captured the raw energy of urban blues and mixed it with hard-driving and powerful garage-rock configuration of cigar box, slide and electric guitar, vocals, harp and drums.
Moreland & Arbuckle have forged a relentless and haunting sound that merges Delta blues, folk, rock, traditional country, soul & murmurs from an infinitely layered musical narrative that spans more than a century.
Their new '7 Cities' CD includes vintage rock (“Kow Tow”), twang (“The Devil and Me”), kick ass rock n boogie (“Tall Boogie,” “Road Blind”) & a stunning version of Tears for Fears’ “Everybody Wants to Rule the World,” all of it rooted in the spirit of the Delta blues.
