The Drews The Sins Of Others

CD Label: Beltaine Dancers Music

 

  Damn! I love this album! The Drews will put a spell on you with their incredibly contagious songs on the album The Sins Of Others. Right out the starting blocks when Andrew DiMartino started singing the opening track "Not So Near To Here," that was it for me I was sold. He sounds like Dave Alvin and the music is that smoldering country-rock-blues that sticks to you like flypaper on hot summer day. I promise you, after one spin of this CD, you will be hooked.

"Nasty Girls" is a real hoot, complete with a kazoo to give it that old time vaudeville Red Skelton effect. "God's Green Room" puts the TV evangelists in their rightful place. The words shout out loud and clear what a scam those people can be pointing out lines like- we accept credit cards, praise the lord, now you will go to heaven... yup, sure we will. "Make Me Scream" is Jen DiMartino's moment in sun, she sings like a woman that knows what she wants... lyrics like -- I don't care about anything else just make me scream, tell tale straight away. The title track is a real scorcher with some nasty slide guitar as an intro; this particular track shows how the blues can inspire an artist.

This is one fine album, from top to bottom. There honestly was not a track I did not enjoy on this CD. Think of a bunch of good old boys sitting on the porch passing around the jug labeled XXX and you can feel the atmosphere a little bit better. Your feet will be tapping and your heart will flutter, this is music that reaches down and pulls your stomach inside out, and you get a few laughs along the way too.
