Busted Flat Records artist: Daddy Long Legs - The Devil's in the Details - New Release review

I just received the newest release (September 17, 2013), The Devil's in the Details, from Daddy Long Legs and it's a non stop rockin' blues bash! Opening with the title track, The Devil's In The Details, Mike Elliott leads the way on a raucous ride with his driving guitar and vocal. Chris Junior Malleck plays smokin harp with great tone. Your Love Is Killing Me is an uptempo "Train" style track with Jeff Wagner keeping things solid on drums and Steve Toms riding the bass as Malleck solo's on harp. On slower soul style blues track, Lonely, Elliott goes deep to the well with super vocals and hot guitar riffs. One of my favorites on the release. Borrowed Time is a retro rock track with blazing tom toms and harp supporting Elliott on vocal. Elliott rips a very stylistic guitar solo bringing to mind Keith Richards doing a take on Chuck Berry. Cool track. On Texas loper, 40 Hour Week, it's not only the great drive and lope, or the super harp track, or the flaming guitar work but the vocals are spot on on this track! Get Drunk and Be Someone is a rock and roll track with great harp, rockabilly guitar riffs and super enthusiasm. This is a track that should easily make huge waves on the airwaves. You Wonder is is a bluesy rock track with shimmery guitar work and fiery harp work. Really quite cool. The One has a cool Latin punk like beat with an overdrive bridge. Elliott again finds great tones on his guitar and has super backing from Malleck on harp. With it's strong back beat rhythm Half Pint is a stand out track with a dynamite harp solo, hot guitar riffs and cool 50's backing vocals. Dug My Own Grave is a simple understated blues track along the lines of Key To The Highway. With evenly balanced guitar, harp and vocal, this is another of the best tracks on the release. This is a really super release which demands attention. If you get a chance, pick up a copy... you can thank me later!
