The US blues-rock trio Levy & The Oaks will be releasing their eponymous LP on the 21st of October.
With some pleasure for those of us who still enjoy bars with straw-dust strewn floors they are releasing, as a stand alone single – Slowly In The Water tomorrow.
An aural journey in to the history and roots of rock ‘n’ roll Slowly In The Water combines both jump blues and western swing with lashings of slide in which the listener can with comfort turn up the speakers, as far as they will go, to revel in the bellowing delays in guitar while the percussion insists the feet keep twisting whilst the back-ground braked honky-tonk piano gives it all the sound of a faded Southern Bar from which a 2016 vocal spires – affording the track a timeless engagement.
One has to give full credit to Levy & The Oaks who have been able – akin to those who truly understand rock’n’roll – to take what is essentially a parochial sound and give it international resonance that can equally find a club in Ibiza with a packed dance floor as a saloon in a dusty out-post in Missouri gathering around Slowly In The Water.
