Marcus Bonfanti has
been making noise in
the nouveau Brit blues world with his
gritty vocals, solid tunes, and gut-level guitar work. He produced this record and
went for stripped-down, honest guitar textures.
He covers a lot of stylistic ground,
with most of it coming across as bluesy as
opposed to straight blues. Like many gigs,
he doesn’t totally settle into a groove until
a few songs in, where his slide work on
“Devil Girl” sits right in the pocket with a
pretty tone and sweet intonation. Bonfanti
blazes on the slap-back rave-up “Tweed
Blazer,” and layers gorgeous guitars on “Get
Behind Me” (a tune that would be at home
on a Gregg Allman record). This guy definitely
seems to have gotten the message that
honesty and emotion trump pretty much
everything else and that’s what he brings.
