RIYL: Swampy Bayou Blues
Label: Romanus Records
You don’t have to be sitting in a pew on Easter Sunday to get a taste of the good word. Â St. Louis’ finest bayou bluesÂ duo Maness Brothers have a message for ya, and it’s gonna get loud. Â Sweaty revival blues riffs meet throat-shredding vocals and a wicked dose of harmonica. Â No need to put on your Sunday best for this one, lads. Â Just slap on a pair of headphones and let the brothers Maness take you to the promised land.
Romanus Records has cooked up some dangerously delightful vinyl delectables for your eyes and ears. Â My favorite of the variants is the ‘Royale with Sleaze’ design, limited to a mere 15 copies. Â They’re absolutely beautiful. Â There will also be an instant sell-out for the Wax Mage one-off variants, limited to just 10, so you’ll need to be ready RIGHT at 2 pm CST to get those. Â In case those get away from you, the blob splatter variant, limited to just 100, is the perfect choice. Â There’s also a random-colored option too, so that’s the best bet for those of you that dig surprises.
These will be dropping at 2:00 PM CST on Sunday, April 15. Â If you want one of those rare versions, you need to be planted firmly on their website on the dot. Â Don’t say I didn’t warn ya!
