Talk about firing on all cylinders, the Deadstring Brothers (and sister) flat out rawk half a dozen different ways on their new CD, Silver Mountain. Naysayers shake their hands and label them Rolling Stones rip-offs. But if they are derivative it’s from the entire southern music arcana including the blues, soul, and swamp rock traditions. So I’d rather think of them as distilling all that is good and righteous in southern music, which is amusing given the fact that they are (I think) based Detroit. Go figure.
