Whiskey Daredevils Get Loud on 'The Genny Session' 

Album Review

The Whiskey Daredevils

The Genny Session (self-released)

thewhiskeydaredevils.com

After downing a 30-pack of Genesee last year while hanging out at a Detroit studio, the Whiskey Daredevils knocked out these songs with minimal overdubs and second takes. Given the fact that Genesee is swill of epic proportions, we didn't have high expectations for the resulting album from this veteran local cowpunk act. But these guys are professionals who can perform well no matter how intoxicated they might be. The album opens with the Blasters-like "Please Stop Hitting Connie," a tune distinguished by its howling vocals and gritty guitars. And it doesn't let up. The grunge-y "Dead Cities" borders on garage rock and the driving "Working" hits hard and will resonate with anyone who's had a dead-end job. — Niesel

The Whiskey Daredevils perform with the D-Days and Lost State of Franklin at 9 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 19, at the Beachland Tavern.
