ABE PARTRIDGE AND THE PSYCH PEAS: Lackluster: LP

This album leans toward high-octane blues rock with some fuzz riffs attached. Abe Partridge has a back catalogue of acoustic music. Here he yell/sings monologues over these heavily distorted riffs. That sort of thing gets old for me quickly. It’s competent in the groove-blues-rock sphere. It’s well executed and well recorded. If that’s your scene or if you’re a fan of his older stuff, it’s worth checking out. –Billups Allen (Self-released)
