Alligator Wine – Demons Of The Mind

Alligator Wine – Demons Of The Mind
Century Media – 2020
Rock, Kraut, Psych
Rated: ****

Named after a Screamin’ Jay Hawkins song this duo has decided to not use any guitar whatsoever! What!? You scream! Indeed, we have a drummer and an organ player that both sing and add extra bits of instrumentation here and there, but no guitar. But then why even talk about Alligator Wine’s new release Demons Of The Mind you ask? Well, cause it’s heavy in a totally different way! Heavy in a kraut way, in a psych way and in an upbeat way that has you envisioning grooving crowds a plenty. Oh, yes, cause I definitely long to see this duo live one day. The kraut is danceable, the psych is catchy and all round rock vibe will surely have you moving along with the rhythm. Will this be for everyone? Probably not, but it deserves to be heard and it deserves your time. If only once… Or, for the long haul and in every dark cellar and festival tent in the future, where we shall go crazy till the sweat drips from the ceiling…
