AMAZING live-sounding production––like the band is right in front of you! Stubbs has released a classic album of instrumentals that references the best elements of blues, surf, jazz, garage, soul and many other styles, with some of the tunes recalling Los Lobos’ borderline atonal clank. This is a record to be played LOUD at a party, and to keep your friends guessing: Santana? Stevie Ray? A Tarantino movie?... Random bursts of electronica and thigh-deep funky keyboards are a big part of the mix here as well. For god’s sake track this one down!
