Man. I wish I had time to type out some stories but I’ve barely got time to shit, shower and shave before heading back to work. I really went into this month’s show with no plan and came out with, what I think, is a really rad show. There is a good mix between new and old, loud and louder and a cool cover of Faster Pussycat’s “House Of Pain.” So Imma shut up and you should press play:

So begins the segment where I start talking about bands I saw and fell in love with @ the Deep Blues Festival. We’ll start with American Relay. These two hit the stage Sunday evening and I was totally captivated by them.

American Relay comes out of Denver, Colorado with a monstrous guitar driven punk blues sound that brings to mind Soundgarden as much as it does Burnside. Really, I could go on and on trying to fill screen space telling you about the sound these guys create but I think I pretty much just summed it up. American Relay is R.L. Burnside meets Soundgarden. Sometimes it’s that easy. Let the audio convince you. It’s awesome. It’s Essential Listening.
Get some.
