Patrick Sweany Band – C’mon C’mere (Nine Mile)|
Reviewed by Sadie O., 4/7/06
Roots Americana skirting the edge of Blues; raw, simple sound. Very fuzzy guitar, pleasant but imperfect vocals, minimal trap kit and very little else. Clearly the man spends a lot of time playing in honky tonks and juke joints – this record has sawdust all over the floor. All the warts of a live honky tonk show.
No FCC. I like 6 and 11, 2, 7 and 10 are pretty good too.
1. *3:13 midtempo shuffle with simple instrumentation – reminiscent of “Up on the Roof”. Imperfect and rootsy.
2. **3:45 lurching downtempo two-step – fun little beat.
3. *3:13 rock ‘n’ roll! With a bit of a shuffle. Fun lyrics.
4. 4:22 slow waltz about failed love. Melancholy.
5. 3:25 downtempo, electric folky march with baritone guitar taking place of drums, fuzzy slide guitar.
6. ***3:58 uptempo folk-punk rave-up. Singing sounds a bit like John Fogerty. Nice bit of singing/picking in unison.
7. **4:12 midtempo two-step instrumental that seems to be barely holding together. Blues riff and one-note guitar solos. VERY gnarly guitar. I think the band’s been drinking….
8. *4:18 slow blues, quavery vocals. A few extra beats here and there, otherwise classic folk blues format.
9. 3:31 slightly slow folk-blues-waltz (think Fats Domino, except on guitar and depressed.)
10. **5:45 uptempo growly shuffle, folky mountain ballad.
11. ***3:39 bouncy two-step instrumental with hollers.
