Justin Townes Earle
Harlem River Blues

Justin Townes Earle - Harlem River Blues

Compared to the much-lauded Midnight at the Movies, Harlem River Blues is more mature and increasingly nuanced, while still embracing the raw voice and clean sound of previous standout tracks like 'Mama's Eyes.' Harlem River Blues kicks off hot with the title track's choir of backing singers and electric guitar, slow dances through a decrepit tenement on 'One More Night in Brooklyn,' and swings à la Jerry Lee Lewis on 'Move Over Mama.' With percussive guitar, killer standup bass lines by Bryn Davies and a guest appearance from Jason Isbell, this record hums along like a 6 train jumpin' the tracks and heading straight for the Tennessee state line.
