More About

Austin outfit Black Joe Lewis has been refining its pugilistic mix of horn-heavy soul and vintage garage-rock for the better part of the past decade. Gruff-voiced guitar-slinger Joe Lewis nodded more to the Otis Redding/James Brown school of retro-soul on early independent albums, but those recordings led to a deal with Lost Highway/Universal Motown for his debut album Tell 'Em What Your Name Is!, co-billed with longtime backing band the Honeybears. On the band's latest effort, Electric Slave, the group ditches the Honeybears portion of the moniker and embraces a more primitive psych-blues style that simultaneously echoes the gritty 1968 Muddy Waters album Electric Mud and the propulsive party-rock of Detroit garage avatars the Dirtbombs.
