Blues from the dark end of the swamp
Keep the doors and windows unlocked when you hear this--a handy exit is the best thing for survival instincts when you feel your flesh crawl. This is what a Rottweiler would sound like if it could play music, and Joe looks like that evil wizard Saruman in "Lord of the Rings."
If you want to conjure up some powerful spirits, don't expect anything that will be easy to handle when the Express summons them-or else. This is primal, raging, and aboriginal in nature, and if you find the hair standing up on the back of your neck, just be glad your head is still attached to feel it.
Joe and his buddies can crack your back as well, just trying to move to those on-the-torture-rack rhythms. Lenny Kravitz gets a thumbs-up for "The Gospel," and Jimi and Stevie Ray sent "Cry" and "Mother Rain" down from the Heaven's Hall of Guitar Heroes. Watch out for the "Black Sheep of the Blues": you're gonna be the one who gets skinned for your hide.
Not safe yet? There's a touch of dobro mojo when you reach "Virginia," but "Witch Cat" will boil you alive in a Louisiana bayou cauldron with a voodoo chant. Dig this--J.S. Bach gets soul too: Joe blows a "Mass in Delta Minor" on harmonica. Salvation comes with the morning light, and pray for mercy.

Very Diverse
This is a great release by JRE, it's very diverse track listing - you get Hendrix influenced blues "Mother Rain", "Witch Cat", rock "Black Sheep of the Blues", "Trouble", acoustic slide blues "Golden Idol", "Virginia". A very well rounded release by a very talented artist.

Brilliant !
Richardson's vocals are deep, earthy, gritty and honest. His songs are soulful and his Louisiana bayou roots shine through. Joe, like any wise blues man surrounds himself with gifted musicians. The trio is a tight combination of raw passion and synergy. Somhelgisfel grafts diverse branches of musical styles including the Delta blues, rock, hip-hop, gospel and boogie. Black Sheep of the Blues is an unorthodox approach to heartfelt blues merging with scorching rock guitars. This song captures the highs and lows of living and playing the blues. The Gospel is a creative fusion in which hip-hop is lost deep in the bayou. This song is storytelling at its best, complete with a funky beat and smokin' guitars. This melting pot is followed by Cry with its hypnotic beat and more incredible string work by Joe. Somhelgisfel is brilliant in its straightforwardness and simple but full sounding format and the Joe Richardson Express are versatile blues at its best!

I just love it!
I first heard about Joe Richardson by listening to subHuman by Recoil, where Richardson provides lyrics and vocals for the majority of the tracks.

I was just impressed from the very first moment I heard his voice & lyrics. So, I've already bought some of his albums, one of them being Somhelgisfel.

I'm really delighted with all of the songs from this album. Voice and instruments transmit plenty of sentiment and I can listen to it over and over. It's a really unique style. Strongly recommended!
