You might think that bloodlines bias my opinion of the most interesting, witty and wonderful musical album just released by my brother under the name Phil DeFlume. Well, here’s what another musician, Astad Dhunjisha, has said about the album.
A total home run! Just finished my 6th listen. I really enjoyed it. Some awesome guitar solos!
Music speaks differently to each one of us. For me there was just so much on the album that I loved, the vocal harmonies, the horn sections, the tabla on newspaper rock, the groove of in water. For me what stood out most of all was the humor and the witty lyrics. It took me quite a bit of scanning the album art for me to make the connections and that was rewarding! A lot of songs stood out - the test of which is that I wake up humming them each morning! For me Newspaper Rock and the last song of the album spoke a lot to me - so much good stuff though - Mabel's toes breathlessly inventive and witty, hot donkey love was super entertaining!
What a great album in a very distinct blues style!
