There is nothing I love more than a good blues album and The Fevertones delivered in spades with their latest EP “On a Mountain,” and “The Things Below.” …Part one of a three part project, inspired by Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy. This Inferno inspired album is enthralled with sin, retribution and repentance. It can be hard to wrap your head around an album that can be both hauntingly beautiful and upbeat, all at once, but Jackson pulls it off with almost gospel like efficiency.
The music is that kind of down south, sitting on the porch during the depression style, that would give Son House a run for his money. The amount of talent that’s put into every song is almost too much to put onto paper; this band bleeds genius. The Fevertones can do more with a kick petal and a suitcase than more bands can do with every capable distortion device on the market. I, personally, can’t wait to see what the rest of this project has in store.
Song to listen to: Of Sin, And Conviction
