CMJ: Download: Bottle Up And Go - Wayward Son
"Bottle Up And Go" is born and bred to go with Jack Daniels from the bottle (and a gun shoved down one's sock.) It's the most enticing mix of blues mixed with garage band punk we've heard in a while. Singer/guitarist Keenan Mitchell and fierce drummer Fareed Sajan ain't afraid to make a scene- especially in dark basements- mixing "chain-gang blues, slave-song howls, murder ballads and bootleg whiskey." With a voice similar to Cold War Kids' Nathan Willett on various tracks, Mitchell's voice meanders from screaming to whisky-slurred whispers- while he frets about losing his baby and waking up with a gun in his hand. They're playing CMJ; I'd bring air plugs and a flask.
