Hello My Beautiful Souls,
I’ve heard Brother Sal’s music called everything from saloon gospel rock to whorehouse gospel. There is something about Brother Sal and his band The Devil May Care,that is that soulful rock n roll that is sadly rare these days.
I found this gem of an album called Blood & Dust I was on Spotify one afternoon while writing. One song played randomly it was called Broke and Busted. It just started with this drumbeat that kicks in from the start and you can’t help but move to that beat. The song has this New Orleans, bluesy but rock and roll sound to it and let me put it this way – I listened to this song on Saturday and it’s still playing in my head, like I played it five minutes ago. It with grab a hold of you and just not leave you. You’ll be grooving for days
You guys know me well enough to know that when it comes to music – one song – is all it takes for me to go out (or straight on to itunes, god bless the modern world) and buy an album. So that’s what I did.
I Will Tell is also a gem. I defying you to stomp your feet and dance around your living room or match down the street, while listen to it.
Blood & Dust is gritty, enjoyable. I’d call it bluesy-rock/Americana but then again I don’t work for Rolling Stone so what would I know. All I know for sure is that Brother Sal sings like he has an old soul or his lived a thousand lives in this one.
Brother Sal and The Devil May Care have a new album coming out soon called – The Other Side of Sin and I can’t wait to hear it, to see what they have cooked up because I know that I will love it
The more I learn about the Californian/Los Angeles music scene (first with Arielle Paul and now with Brother Sal) the more I am amazed by the talent that is there and that is emerging. I wish I could fly there every weekend but sadly I live in Sydney, so that is slight out of my grasp but if you live there and you can get out and see the amazing Brother Sal, please do. He plays at the Piano Bar on Selma Ave (please check the website for more) . Please go down and have a dance for me. Go enjoy and lose yourself in some real and fantastic music
