Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
2012-11-17Guitarist, vocalist, songwriter, harmonica blower, Jason Vivone doesn't take himself too seriously. Just listen to his latest release with the Billy Bats, Lather Rinse Repeat. It's full of tongue in cheek lyrics about some of the blues' favorite subjects, drinking and sex. It opens up strong with the burner "I Hear A Heartbeat", before it settles into the upbeat mid-tempo blues that packs the rest of the disc. For the last song the band slows it down for the banjo-inflected "Medusa Blues". This Kansas City band has left me impressed. Rebecca Ruth
