Beardy blues-rockers Mount Carmel have a new album of beardy blues-rock out this week. I’m not sure I’m totally sold on it, but it’s slick and big-sounding, I can imagine a big hall full of rednecks totally getting down to this country-grunge slickness. In fairness there are some nice windy riffs and bombastic drums but what we’re looking at is basically a modern-day cross between Led Zeppelin and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

It’s competent but hackneyed stuff basically, with my favourite point being the instrumental ‘Bridge to Nowhere’ which ends the first side, a cheeky little riff full of Billy Gibbons-ish pinch harmonics, overused to the point where it becomes good again. I’m less fond of the Blueshammer swagger of the vocal tracks, although like I say some of the riffs have a kind of Pearls and Brass complexity to them which can be pretty tasty (if a little dinosaur-flavoured). Slick and hairy American man rock.
