2016 saw LA bluesmith Hanni El Khatib embarking on a project that would challenge him to explore genres outside of the blues vein. Â What we got was Savage Times, a collection of 3-song volumes over the course of the year. Â Hanni’s put the finishing touches on this sprawling adventure just recently and, to commemorate the journey, he’s decided to compile all of it into a 10″ box set. Â You’ll hear stabs at vintageÂ garage rock, soul and r&b, singer/songwriter ballads, minimal blues and even hip hop.
No specific quantity of box sets have been announced, but I wouldn’t wait too long if you really want this thing. Â Some of his albums go for $200+ on the secondary market. Â Exhibit A. Â Check out the various volumesÂ on Spotify to get a feel of Savage Times and grab yourself a box set after the ‘buy’ link.
