Now Hear This: Sugarmill Slim | Sugarmill Slim

I'm getting caught up on the good albums that have come out lately. Like this one.


THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “With their soulful harp playing and electric stage presence Los Angeles glam-bluesman Sugarmill Slim has been garnering acclaim from the likes of Jimmy Vivino, Mark Agnesi, Barry Goldberg and L.A.’s thriving blues community. A fixture on the jam scene around Hollywood and the San Fernando Valley, Slim could be seen performing alongside Slash at NAMM 2020: Gibson Live At the Grove.

Slim’s eponymous debut. Recorded with their live band of Slam McAdam (drums), Courtney Kakebeen (bass), Luca Neroni (guitar) and Isaac Rawdog Plummer (organ), the album documents Slim’s vision of raw, violent and unadulterated blues — “Chicago filth-blues recorded on the rare occasion I wasn’t at your mama’s house,” as he puts it. Produced, engineered and mixed by Chuck Kavooras (Sugar Ray Rayford, Mannish Boys) and mastered by Grammy-winning engineer Erick Labson at United Records, Sugarmill Slim’s take on America’s music is stealing the blues back from sports bars and BBQs.”
