Review of Low Down in Downbeat (USA)


More Soulful Than Most

Delta Moon, Low Down

By Frank-John Hadley

The 10th album by this blues-rock band in Atlanta follows the game plan of previous efforts by sustaining a musical atmosphere of swampland sultriness. The potency of guitar work by Tom Gray and Mark Johnson remains strong, and their riffs are compellingly coherent. Gray sings nine equally impressive original songs in a sandpapered rasp that’s salve for the affective aches and urgencies acknowledged throughout his thoughtful lyrics. Their best album also shines for a memorable take on Skip James’ “Hard Time Killing Floor Blues.”
