Five Horse Johnson - The Taking Of Blackheart (Small Stone)


Bluesy boogie with all the trimmings comes courtesy of Five Horse Johnson on their latest album THE TAKING OF BLACKHEART. This 12-track collection explodes with vibrant bursts of harmonica and organ (“Beating in My Hand”), taking this squad’s tried and true gravel vocal and swampy six string technique to rousing rock ‘n roll heights (“Keep On Diggin’ “) without watering down any of the intended nastiness (“Quick on the Trigger”).Guided by a righteously rebellious and rollicking rhythm section, the latest selection by this veteran band is crammed with a wealth of blues-laden rock ‘n roll jams appealing to fans of everything from ZZ Top to Clutch. www.smallstone.com
