Acoustic roots and soul music combined to make something entirely new; it's called HoboSoul.
Fan quote says it best...
"This album is a more personalized departure from his earlier work in "Sweet City Slang." The tracks all have a nice listenability coupled
with complex and grabbing guitar and vocal hooks. Tweed shows his love
and deference for the Delta Blues style while permitting his mastery of
the guitar show through with his specific style.
I'm on my 3rd
listen of the CD and it seems many genres are present including delta
blues, rockabilly, some jazz, and a good folk sensibility. What I liked
best about this album is that it made the Delta style more listenable,
which even those who really love Sun Records, Alan Lomax, Robert
Johnson, Son House etc, will admit that the quality of the recordings
and the cultural depth presented sometimes make it hard to listen,
although on the aggregate you would still say you were a fan on the
All the tracks on this album are great. Track 1 is a stand
out and gives you a great expectation for what to expect the rest of
the album. The Robert Johnson cover is deep and shows that Tweed really
understands Delta, and does not parrot or imitate - he is a thoroughbred
Delta blues artist.
Although this a three piece most of the
time, there is a tremendous amount of sound produced. Despite the
quantity of sound, every guitar hook is neatly in order, nothing is
wasted, there is nothing superfluous. This album stands alone among
other contemporaries and I cannot wait for Tweed's next project."
