Product Description

Product Description

Black Joe Lewis have unveiled the track listing and album art for their brand new full-length LP, Electric Slave, on Vagrant Records. You can listen to the album s opening track Skulldiggin at the link here: http://soundcloud.com/black-joe-lewis/skulldiggin/ Skulldiggin was hailed by Consequence of Sound as a deafening first shot in the band s war against technology-induced devolution. Over the mortar fire of crashing cymbals and the bombastic wail of a ferocious guitar, Lewis screams and shouts about mind control. And when his voice gets swallowed up by the feedback, it s an intriguing extension of the anti-technology commentary. Most of Electric Slave was produced by GRAMMY award winner Stuart Sikes (White Stripes, Cat Power, Modest Mouse) and recorded at Church House Studios in Austin, TX. Three of the new tracks ( Skulldiggin, Dar Es Salaam, My Blood Ain't Runnin' Right ) were recorded and produced by John Congleton (Explosions in the Sky, St. Vincent, Okkervil River) at Elmwood Studios in Dallas

5.0 out of 5 stars maybe their best so far 29 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a terrific album! Heavier and more guitar oriented than the two former ones, but certainly as high-spirited and energetic. Garagebluesrockfunksoul doesn't get any better than this!

2.0 out of 5 stars Disconnect The Power 22 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Third time not so lucky. The energy and raw power of the previous two albums, and indeed his live performances, is missing from this cluttered effort. Still, we're all allowed one mistake so I'll be back for the next album.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME 4 Sep 2013
By j-mondo - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I grew up on punk, funk and blues. This back kicks ass in a million ways. In the 80's Bad Brains was a NY/DC hardcore punk and reggae band. They took heavy criticism but for their fans they were 2nd to none, an all original act on a scene inhabited by grimy white kids. Today Black Joe Lewis and The Honeybears have melded rock and funk into a panty dropping music party. I love it. I don't know the artists names in this band, I don't know what they look like, but this is the 3rd album of theirs that made it to my car and I'd party with the Honeybears if they were in Tampa. People should worry less about their aspirations in the realm of internet music critique and just enjoy the jams.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why a two star review? 29 Aug 2013
By D. Duffey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I can't understand the two star review by the first reviewer! True, this cd is not in the same mold as "Tell 'Em What Your Name Is" and "Scandalous", but what the cd does do is link Black Joe Louis closer to Mick Collins. There is the funk and soul of the previously mentioned cds, but this cd chooses to include some full blown rockers. Do not construe this as a sell out, but consider this a nod to the most prolific black artist who has melded soul, funk, garage, and punk into one mean ass SOB. Of course, I am refering to Mick Collins. Buy it, you won't be disappointed!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Rock jam form a great Guitar Rocker!! 7 Sep 2013
By d.nice - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a loud Rock/Blues album. This album is a breakaway from earlier Joe Lewis album's in the sense that the HoneyBears horn section dont announce themselves with every track. This album is aggressive climatic and exciting. The 11 tracks grab and shake you ,like track 2 "Young Girls" where Lewis proclaims..."I don't want no Young Girls' or "Dar Es SaLaam" a heavy guitar groove that emits early 70's late night Hard Rock. The horn section makes a brief interlude on "Come to My Party" a fast paced jam with the horn section performing alongside a groove minded guitarist. "Vampire" comes on like some West Texas Blues number with winding guitar chords to boot.There have been some who have complained about the sound production of this disc,but this session was recording too sound garage and rough it sound comes across showcasing the band as a working Rock band more so than a studio band pretending to be a working Rock band,it is obviously an apparent different direction in terms of sound from the previous "polished" Black Joe Lewis records.One Review had this at 2 stars,I thought this was interesting,but then when I looked at what recordings this reviewer was giving 4-5 stars,I didn't find it all so shocking at all that this great record would get only 2 stars....you have to at least know Rock&Blues to know what Black Joe Lewis is trying to accomplish....a Marvelous explosion of clashing guitars and poetic lyrics to match!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Music is Now Underground Music 7 Sep 2013
By mathmatics - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I heard " come to my Party " on wxrt in chicago and was blown away . I went and listened to some of BJL songs on you tube ; How does a talent and a sound this large stay hidden? I know one persons music anothers noise but I think everything musically is upside down almost deliberately.

The least talented, most vulgar crass acts are on top and groups like Of Monsters and Men, Calexico, Arcxade Fire to name a few have to be found out . Is it a deviance type of thing where the bizarre becomes normal and what is normal is now bizarre? whose agenda is being served ?

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, but not as good as previous efforts 14 Oct 2013
By M. Wasik - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am a big fan of his first two albums with the Honeybears. I don't know if they are the missing ingredient here, but this album seems to lack some of the variety of the two prior. Additionally, there are a few tracks where his lyrics are unintelligible. That being said, there is plenty here that I still enjoyed. The man has a talent for fuzzed-out guitar hooks; the first track provides ample evidence of this. If you're just beginning with Black Joe Lewis, I would recommend either of the first two albums before getting into this one.
