Last year, Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears went back to their grunge-y garage blues roots with Backlash, and the Austin-based band's new album, The Difference Between You & Me, continues in that vein of things. The album commences with the riveting “Nothing but a Cliché,” a song that features hiccupping vocals and a grunge-y guitar riff.
Other highlights include the swinging "Suit or Soul," a tune that benefits from a spirited horn arrangement, and "Handshake Drugs," a song that features distorted vocals and some nasty slide guitar. Expect to hear them tonight as Lewis and Co. play what Lewis refers to as "the real blues." (Jeff Niesel)
