Barrence Whitfield and the Savages “Dig They Savage Soul”

(Bloodshot) Of course if Barrence Whitfield still has a functioning Savages making the scene Bloodshot is releasing a record! “Americana” might imply country sounds, but what is more American than the house rockin’, half in the bag, raucous, borderline psychobilly that Whitfield brought to Boston in the 80s, defying that towns racial politics and starting a new Revolution where the first one had so much traction. More importantly, the decades have only made the monster blues blasts of Barrence’s vocal cords scratchier, nastier and deeper. If you are soul searching, your search ends here!
