I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Mississippi Bound, from Ivor S.K. and it's quite cool. Opening with Ska flavored title track, Mississippi Bound, Ivor on lead vocal and guitar (as well as bass and hand claps), starts the release off with a bang. On I Don't Roll, he brings the pace to a slower acoustic blues feel but with contemporary radio formatting. Talkin' Shit Again is a cool country style blues with excellent mic placement making his acoustic guitar glisten. Very nice. A definite radio shot is Sex Drugs & Cigarettes with it's title, catchy melody and strong presentation. I really like Ivor's addition of electric guitar soloing over the top giving it a definite kick. Instrumental, Down The Road has a real nice country blues gait with acoustic guitar lead and rhythm. Wrapping the release is Dead Pig with a solid blues rock flavor. With a great rhythm, nice acoustic slide, simple percussive beat and strong vocals, this is a perfect closer for a cool release.
