Coyote Slim and Teurfs, Colin – “California Delta Blues” – [Self Release]

41ldpeSw0nL._SL500_AA280_

A man, his guitar, and a pal accompanying on harmonica, sitting playing the blues. New self-released album from Coyote Slim and Colin Teurfs. Good shuffling jumpin’ blues music here..

Slim plays somewhat broken guitar rhythm patterns on a couple tracks and knows his way around the Mississippi Delta style. His unique voice is hauntingly low and a bit grizzy, contrasting the higher pitch harmonica wail. The tracks have a stripped down feel because it’s only just the two of them, and it sounds a little produced, but it gives the guitar sound a crisp clean crunch. His voice gives the tracks a sense of honesty and truthfulness. Track 3 is a true story of his house burning down. Of course, I’m a sucker for “Slim’s Boogie” which is a toe tapper…

The two tracks without the harmonica seem to be lacking, but track 4 (Charlie Patton tune) still holds it’s own. I like that the Teurfs knows how to keep a good rhythm with the harmonica AND can also tear it up when he needs. Great new self-release from local bluesman, who’d have thought?
