Wille & The Bandits - Steal album review

The best of Blues this month

TODO alt text

Their dreadlocks, dobros and djembes announce Wille Edwards’s trio as a more worldly prospect than your average 12-bar troglodyte, and Steal duly pulls you in with nimble multi-instrumental songs that test the boundaries of the blues.

Miles Away is a rattling-good slide-rocker (bolstered by organ from Don Airey), Hot Rocks is punchy and purposeful, while Scared Of The Sun darkens the mood nicely.
