Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Tomislav Goluban

Blow Junkie

2015-05-15

Tomislav Goluban’s 6th studio album doesn’t try to break any new ground in the blues rock world. The Croatian harmonicist sings and blows his harp over 16 traditional blues rock tracks, with a charming accent and broken english. The songs are typical blues formations, with simple, occasionally humorous lyrics, and plenty of instrumental solo breaks between the electric guitar, bass, and harmonica. Although Goluban’s playing is commendable, the production is peculiar, making the harmonica sound like it’s in the back of the mix while it’s supposed to be the main focus. Regardless, Blow Junkie is an easy-listening record with plenty to offer.
