Daily Bandcamp Album; Swimming in Turpentine by Woodbrain

"A very new and very exciting vision of the blues — a fusion of the Delta and their own haunted visions. In a way, when performing live they're like a classic jam band that can take a song and its theme for great lengths... but whatever they are, they're extremely innovative with a sound completely their own. Exhilarating and mind-enchanting." —Cascade Blues Association"

Having a fan account on Bandcamp can be quite rewarding. Following your friends and their purchases and recommendations can be a godsend. My good friend Bucky, whom has similar and phenomenal taste in music, bought this one and it turned up in my feed recently. Bucky is quoted as saying: 

"Rootsy, bluesy & jammy rock. Great addition for those of you on the blues rock kick lately yet need something outside the normal blues box. Favorite track: Storm Clouds."

When he speaks, I listen. And listen I did. First off you have to have an ear for an upbeat traditional blues rock focusing more on the blues rather than rock. There's country rock mixed in for good measure.  Swimming in Turentinpe is easy on the ears and quite satisfying to the soul. When you want to kick back and relax, Woodbrain has you covered.
