HEAVY TRASH: Midnight Soul Serenade: CD

Jan 12, 2010

Had to take a look and see if Tchad Blake and/or Mitchell Froom had a hand in producing this. Much of what’s here sounds like a cross between later period Tom Waits and Los Lobos’ more recent art-slathered take on rock’n’roll and blues, which is by no means an insult. Jon Spencer and Matt Verta-Ray add a bit more of their own sociopathic predilections to the proceedings, meaning the ride is often loud and odd. Great stuff.
