How the west will be won, indeed - stetson bound (and gagged), once again in the back of a paddy wagon after a mild slip-up on their last heist (which poseur tipped off the sheriff?), Blues Control plot their escape, and tonal devastation, with sweaty fervor. Lehigh Valley be damned, these "Iron Pigs" gotta hustle! There's gold in the mines, we're told, and Blues Control as a duo are known to sniff out the metal. Further, this ain't no Potato Land - BC know the difference between right and real - expect reality to greet you when reaching for the "cosmos in the cupboard," whether the finish, like the sound, is rough or shiny. Just like extending from the kitchen step-ladder, a higher plane is within reach when listening to any one jam from their Valley Tangents. Take your time with it, spread it around your loaf of bread- it's preserved, consistent no matter the length of time since creation or the time between bites. The verve that surges when presented freshly, live, is real. Reality is ready, are you? Blues Control tour West in November, dress appropriately.
