Thirty Tigers artist: Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band - Dance Songs For Hard Times - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Dance Songs For Hard Times (April 9, 2021), from Rev. Peyton's Big Damn Band and it's gritty and solid. Opening with Ways and Means, with it's raw, Hill Country like sound. Peyton on lead vocal and guitar and backed by Breezy Peyton on washboard, percussion and vocal and Sad Max Senteney on drums, percussion and vocal, this track has real stones. It's primitive rhythm and sparse instrumentation, it's what blues is all about. Excellent opener. Rocker, Rattle Can is propelled by slide guitar and driving percussion. Peyton really winds it out on this one and his call response with Breezy is terrific.  No Tellin' When, a real blues, with authentic style vocals and guitar percussion is the real deal. This is the kind of track that reflects the real power in the Son House and Lightning Hopkins recordings. Very nice. Sad Song not only has the grit of original blues but also the undercut funk of Little Feat but way underplayed. With vocal work by the Peytons and Senteney and the Rev's slide work against the stiff percussion, another solid track. Cool boogie track, Nothing's Easy But You and Me has a great tempo and driving slide. Super track. Wrapping the release is Come Down Angels, a high energy, spiritual sparked track with shared vocal lead with Breezy and lively slide work. This is a hot release that should appeal to most lovers of hard line blues and folk style music.
