[LP] J. RODDY WALSTON & THE BUSINESS are USED TO rocking like they DID in the old days

watch your tongue, it’s on my tongue, it tastes good, but it tastes so young

♫ J Roddy Walston & The Business – Used To Did

Ok, time to be honest with me, you guys totally slept on J Roddy’s epic “Brave Man’s Death” that I posted back in June and that needs to be remedied pronto. The man and The Business recently released their debut self titled LP and if guitar music has ever rocked you so hard you woke up like that they guy on the cover then this is for you. The guitars wail, the vocals growl, and the piano adds the perfect crisp spice to this rock and roll stew. “Brave Man’s Death” is present as the album’s simmering centerpiece but it’s flanked by fantastic tracks on both sides. Don’t Break The Needle EP‘s “Don’t Get Old” gets reworked to rollicking guitar shredding results and that EP’s title track stays on as the searing album opener. “Full Growing Man” is another sing along highlight. The jam that gets me most pumped at the moment is “Used To Did” whose piano prowess deftly propels the whole shebang into full on go-crazy-at-the-concert level. This whole disc is full on, people. Get it. Crank it. And sweat it the fuck out.
