ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Lo-fi cigar box guitar workouts crudely recorded in the cellar on a 4-track rig by sound pilot Bessie Wolfe. Dig?

"The Low-Country Messiahs don't sound like your typical bar band," writes the Boston Herald. "Of course if your typical bar is nestled in Mississippi hill country, then perhaps they would fit right in ... [they] find their muse in the haunting sounds of cult juke joint favorites such as Junior Kimbrough and the raw, unschooled sounds of Robert Pete Williams ... but the Low-Country Messiahs aim for a quieter, more ominous sound ... raw, plaintive, brooding, atmospheric tunes."

With dark, creaky slide guitars that echo left to right and loom over the proceedings like the grayest of storm clouds, this album seems an obvious and appropriate soundtrack for these cold and foreboding months. While this can't be considered a traditional delta blues offering, the roots remain grounded while creative liberties are implemented and left free to shoot off in all directions. At times eerily quiet, the songs are melodic but not polished, obscured but not disturbing. The technique here is subtle and consistent, a mix of guitars and percussion that blends perfectly with the quiet vocals and the sincere lyrics, maybe the most traditional aspect of the songs. Fans of the darker side of the blues will find solace in this collection, as it seems to vividly register a time and place, a drive down a rain drenched dirt road on a pitch black night.

INCREDIBLE
EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS BAND IS PERFECT-THE NAME, THE SONGS THE SOUND- A SENSE OF FOREBODING, LIKE A DARK CLOUD ON AN EXPANSIVE HORIZON,PERMEATES MANY OF THE TRACKS-CHRISTIANITY MEETS VOODOO, IF THIS WERE A ROADTRIP YOU JUST KNOW IT'D END UP INVOLVING TEXAS AND A CHAINSAW-DONT GO HITCHING DOWN THIS ROAD SONNY BOY..THE NATIVE AMERICAN RHYTHMS AND SUB BASS OF 'CHURCH' WITH ITS HAUNTING VOCAL DELIVERY IS UTTERLY SUPERB AND WITHOUT PARALLEL-BEAUTIFULLY RECORDED.MILK WHITE HORSE IS A LUMBERING BEHEMOTH OF A TRACK-EFFORTLESS,MESMERISING,TRANCE INDUCING..GOOFER DUST CRUSHES YOU UNDER THE WEIGHT OF ITS MISERY-THE MYSTICAL VOODOO IMAGERY IT EVOKES WORKS
SUPERBLY- ABSOLUTELY STUNNING.

The low country messiahs depict perfectly a place I´m not sure I´d love lo live in! (did anyone watch \"looking for the wreong eyed Jesus\" documentary? Well...kind of!), dark, primitive, raw, tough, great!.
