HIPBONE SLIM AND THE KNEE-TREMBLERS: Snake Pit: CD

The drummer from the Headcoats is what caught my attention. The sound convinced me to hang on to this one. Blues with a voodoo feel meets early rock. The vocals have a distant sound to them. There’s a very mellow feel to the whole sound, but the guitars are what keep it strong. Vocals make me think of Ricky (not the later Rick) Nelson if he’d been a very dirty boy growing up. Lately, this has been the perfect wind-down music after a long day for me.
