Jack Rabbit Slim - Despedida 2018


 
The kings of Sleaze-a-billy are about to head off into the sunset.That's right Jack Rabbit Slim are packing it in and going out with a bang.Since their start back in 2004 these cats have constantly raised the bar and have never failed to deliver the goods.Their discography bears out that this is one killer and unique  rock n roll band. That said the band's final  album, " Despedida" ( Spanish  for farewell)  has now dropped and it's save to say  these cats are going out on top. Punching the clock with 12 originals,this puppy pulls no punches .Basically they stay the course and as a result we get that distinct JRS sound . It's a  mix of straight up rocknroll, billy, with  little shots of surf ,country and r&b  . It's pretty much what you would want or expect from them,so you know it's damn good.Highlights include: Time To Bop", "Train Wreck ", The Mirror" "Tight But Loose" and the movin' and groovin' " Mojo Risin' "
       
   It really is bittersweet that "Despedida"is the final Jack Rabbit Slim. It's a flat out killer and a must have album by one of the best bands in the last twenty years.Highly recommended!!

Crystal & Runnin’ Wild – The Midnight Creature 2018



        There is no doubt that Crystal & Runnin’ Wild are a top shelf outfit. Despite laying down some damn kool rockabilly/ roots music, you just know that there is much more to these cats. Their bopping  cover of "Search and Destroy" bears that out.Well now they are upping the anti and shifting gears with their second album; "The Midnight Creature".This time out they are throwing down one impressive hand  that changes the game. Punching in with 13 tracks that range from frantic rockabilly to garage to straight up rock n roll and more. They also throw in a couple of slower numbers, just to keep you on your toes.It's a stout and  kinetic affair  that's impossible to resist.Highlights include: "Wish You Misery", "I Love My Monsters","Deadly Day", "Jezebel" and "  The Midnight Creature".

     
   Crystal & Runnin’ Wild  are flexing their muscles and shaking things up with "The Midnight Creature" . It's ballsy move  and damn impressive too boot. Highly recommended!!
