RIYL: Alabama Shakes, Rhiannon Giddens, St. Paul & The Broken Bones

Label: Soul Step Records

Tennessee bluesmith Amythyst Kiah knows how to do the damn thing.  A master in all things Southern Gothic, Amythyst can hypnotize any music sceptic with her incredibly raw vocal performance, simultaneously wielding an acoustic guitar and banjo and leading a band dedicated to African-American roots.  From the originals like Mississippi Sheiks and Big Mama Thornton to contemporaries like Brittany Howard and St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Amythyst Kiah and Her Chest of Glass take the blues baton from her torchbearers and continue a rich tradition with prowess and class.

Soul Step Records only has 100 copies of the record on ‘blue diamond’ vinyl and most of those have gone to the label’s subscribers, so check out some of the tracks below and a few more after the ‘buy’ link, but be quick about it.
