Little Hurricane – Gold Fever

Over the past few years, US duo Little Hurricane have made their mark as purveyors of raw, earthy blues. Gold Fever continues in that vein but with stylistic stabs at new territory: for example, a horn section on track four (Boiling Water) and country elements on several tracks. However, most cuts here are bluesy and swampy to the point where the band, at times, sound like a New Millennium take on Tony Joe White (which is a good thing). Bones, especially, evokes the South in a way that takes you straight to the Bayou on a hot summer’s day. (PH)
