G. Love & Special Sauce The Juice
Release Date: January 17, 2020
Recorded in Nashville with a slew of special guests including Robert Randolph, Marcus King, and Roosevelt Collier, The Juice is indeed diploma worthy. Co-produced and co-written with Keb' Mo', it’s an electrifying collection that tips its cap to more than a century of blues greats. It offers its own distinctly modern pop spin on the genre, mixing programmed beats and hip-hop grooves with blistering guitar and sacred steel. G. Love’s lyrics are both personal and political here, artfully balancing his appreciation for the simple joys in life with his obligation to speak out for justice and equality. His performances are suitably riotous and rousing to match, with infectious call-and-response hooks and funky sing-along choruses at every turn.
