Daily Bancamp Album – Mississippi Bones – Mississippi Bones

From our review:

Quickly: they sound like Lord, or Stone Temple Pilots having discovered down-tuning and blues– and it’s nearly as cool as it sounds. The combination of Duke Ellington‘s “It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing” into a swinging swamp-blues/ metal number is just nice. (“Making deals with the robot devil.”)

Nothing original, but rocking stuff: blues riffs transformed into metal, showing clearly the line from blues to rock to metal. A bluesman tuned down a fifth from standard– aka waaaay down.
