LO-FI: The Blackfoot Gypsies
The Blackfoot Gypsies Gypsies have unleashed a set of original roadhouse rockin’ tunes with To the Top, on Plowboy Records. The Nashville, Tennessee based powerhouse quartet demonstrate raucous energy and soul on this collection delivering their take on white-knuckled rock’n’roll.
Across the 15 tracks of To the Top, the Blackfoot Gypsies fuse their influences — swamp blues cool, downhome hillbilly funk and homegrown punk panache — into a lean, mean machine invoking such classic musical malcontents as The Rolling Stones, The Faces and Mott The Hoople, while sparking and spitting 21st-century fire. It’s the type of record that could only come from a band that learned to rock the old-fashioned way — one sweaty, full-throttle live performance at a time.
