Busted Flat records artist: The Vaudevillian - Bringing Satan Down - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Bringing Down Satan, from The Vaudevillian and it's quite interesting and enjoyable. Opening with blues infused, Broom Shooter, Jitterbug James on vocal and guitar, Piedmont Johnson on vocal and bull fiddle and Norah Spades on vocal, kazoo and washboard this band lays it down. Rag time, James Street Turnaround is a quick paced great animated track with a great beat. Sweet Honey Thighs is bound to be a crowd favorite with it's suggestive nature and cool beat. Johnson's bass lines and random punctuation makes this track sing. Country style blues, Sail Away, with it's authentic period vocals is driven by James' guitar rhythm and Johnson's bass solo is really cool. Dry Bone Shuffle is a fast paced blues number, think Blind Blake, with hot bass riffs. One of my favorite tracks on the release this track cooks. Cool blues track, Goin' To German features some real interesting whistling techniques with a solid guitar rhythm. Grind So Fine is another real nice rag with a super lead and backing vocals. With banter between James and Spades, and cool banjo/guitar work, as well as keyboard work makes this another of the top tracks. Easy stepper, The Duck's Yas Yas Yas has a really nice nice keyboard work and lead kazoo and again, nice bass work by Johnson. Bootlegger's Blues is a real nice Piedmont style number showings James' fluid finger work. I particularly like the vocal blending on the chorus of this track. Wrapping the release is title track, Bringing Satan Down, with it's sultry, kazoo lead intro. Unusual vocal techniques serve to even more date the style of the music. The band really has it rocking on this one with super guitar riffs, bass lines and of course kazoo. This is a really cool release with unusual sounds and nice grooves. Give it a shot. It isn't for everyone...but it is cool.
