Grifter – Grifter

Grifter – Grifter
Ripple Music – 2011
Rock, Southern, Classic, Hard, Seventies, Blues, Stoner
Rated: *****

Originally started as a foursome in the horrible and insane year of 2003 they became a trio after their first gig. Eight years on the three amigos are still going strong and they delivered their first full-sized, self-titled album: Grifter. Exploding with simple but enormously fat riffs and a massive groove these booze fueled tunes will push not only the wavering alcoholics but even the most secure renouncers of the drink off the wagon. It is raw passion and a pure love for the riff that propels this album to sheer heights. No intricate or complex structuring, but unmistakable catchy melodies and impressive hooks finished off by tremendous vocals. Good ol’ fashioned rock by them good ol’ boys; bring the good ol’ times for all you good ol’ boozehounds. So poor yerself another tall one and put this record on repeat; for this is iron strong bluesy rock with a Southern sauce that needs to be baptized in some good ol’ bourbon… Gravy!
