Product Description

Product Description

2013 release, the third album from J.D. Wilkes and The Dirt Daubers. Produced by Cheetah Chrome, 'Wild Moon' finds The Dirt Daubers - previously an old-timey, acoustic group - plugged in and wailing away on raw, blissfully distorted Rock 'n' Roll and Blues. The Dirt Daubers were formed by Legendary Shack Shakers front man, artist, director and country punk pioneer J.D. Wilkes in 2009 with his wife Jessica. Wilkes' "gothic preacher" persona and frantic blues harmonica whips 'Wild Moon' into a frenzy, trading lead vocal duties with his feminine foil. J.D. and Jessica are joined by electric guitarist Rod Hamdallah and drummer Preston Corn. Smoky baritone sax grooves are provided by Tom Waits' sideman Ralph Carney, with piano played by Wilkes himself. Says J.D., "The band might have come "down from the mountain" (only to land square in the Mississippi Delta!) but the heart and soul of the Dirt Daubers remain intact." "It's the sort of album you'd hear at a roadhouse in the middle of nowhere, with punky country tunes that cater to the rough-and-tumble biker crowd and creepy, haunting ballads aimed at the people who've been drowning sorrows at the bar." - Andrew Leahey, American Songwriter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Stuff 29 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Another Dirt Daubers release, and this one should not disappoint if you liked the previous 2.
There is a slight blurring of the line between the Dirt Daubers and the Legendary Shack Shakers on this album, but for me this is no bad thing at all, and if this is the direction the band are headed in, I'm looking forward to further releases.
Given the lack of (for me) decent releases recently, do yourself a favour, buy this, enjoy a good album and support one of the best contemporary talents on the music scene.
More power to you J.D. and keep them coming.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Dirt Daubers....Plugged In!! 29 Nov 2013
By Stanley Runk - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The Dirt Daubers have returned....for the most part. Initially a three piece with Mark Robertson(Legendary Shack Shaker) on bass, Jessica Wilkes on vocals, and of course Col. JD Wilkes on harp and banjo, they have now added to the mix guitarist Rod Hamdallah and drummer Preston Corn. Robertson is out and bass duties are filled by JD and Jessica, who alternate depending on who's singing.
As most fans of the band know, this new lineup means a new sound. It's not the acoustic roots/bluegrass sound of the first two albums. The Daubers are now "plugged in" as it were, and while this may turn off some of the purist fans, this is a very interesting, exciting and enjoyable chapter in the Dirt Daubers saga. JD didn't really want to paint himself into a corner. I mean, how many bluegrassy albums does a guy want to put out? The Shack Shakers never really repeated themselves, why should The Dirt Daubers?
Anyhow, Wild Moon is a very fresh sounding album-something new by way of something old in terms of sound. My wife, upon hearing the album said that it sounded "old timey", yet couldn't place the era, and I think that really sums up the album good. Listening to it, you kind of instinctively know that it sounds retro, but instead of merely copying a specific sound of a specific era, using styles all across the board, it comes off as sounding original. This was also what the Shack Shakers would do, but much more chaotic. Wild Moon rocks pretty hard in spots, but all in all, it's a more mellow album than anything by the Shack Shakers.
You have blues, old time jazz and even some dirty sounding hard bar rock. Folks have used "rockabilly" to describe the sound, but I'm not hearing that. I'm assuming most people using that term to describe this probably aren't huge rockabilly fans. The only reason I'm saying that is coz I have an assload of rockabilly albums.
Both JD and Jessica trade off about equally on the vocals again. Jessica sounds a lot more like a smoky nightclub singer here, and it's quite delightful. JD is.....well, he's JD!! And as you would expect, his harp playing is second to none(Track 1 will instantly remind you of that).
I love their first two albums as much as anyone, but I'm really pleased with the path these guys are taking now. Instead of being just another modern clone of an old time genre, these guys are indeed taking it to the next level, as the saying goes. I'm really looking forward to what they do next.
