Patrick Sweany - Ancient Noise, album review

It's The Blues

This is down and dirty and growling blues, like Up and Down, and [tautology alert] plaintive blues like Country Loving, so maybe a bit of [platitude alert] country blues, and funky blues like No Way No How, and some swamp blues like Outcast Blues.

It is as always with Patrick Sweany damn fine blues. I think it is refined too – I won’t say for the blues, though of course it applies – but simply in the overall musicality, because with songs like Get Along and Play Around I hear a little of the blue-eyed soul of Boz Scaggs, and that makes me feel refined in a genuinely complimentary way.

An excellent album of the broadest blues.
