The blues can be melancholy by nature, but when it’s Soulshaker’s blues, it’s down right fun. From the opening title cut of “DOWN TO MEXICO,” the Soulshakers take you on a rowdy journey through thirteen cuts that range from rocky blues tunes to just plain rock tunes, from Chicago-style offerings to hints of New Orleans influence. Most of all, it’s easy to tell that Texas rock’n’blues is the right call for this dynamic combo from the Canyon Lake area. Their influences are varied and evident on the Reggae-laden “What 4.” The musical side of the album is tight, employing varied guitar styles and an adept horn section. If you want to hear great guitar, lyrics, harmony, horns, and a harmonica all in one song, check out “Rattlesnake Hide” which features the unlikely twin lead break from the bass guitar and a saxophone. This well-produced project is a great showcase of the band’s recorded talents, which I’m sure get out-shined by a live performance. Catch one when you can. For now, get the disc for only $13.99!
