Aloysius – Destitution Blues


Think whiskey, gravel voice, southern leanings, high-octane moonshine, an old Harley and a fistful of debt. The blues never sound so deep, troubled and agonizing as these lo-fi tracks from Minnesota.  An acoustic guitar here, a blues harp there.  This music would have been perfect on my road-trip last week—after seeing a very ill family member in West Texas—through Texarkana, Little Rock, Memphis, Louisville and Seymour Indiana. These are unadorned blues for the troubled and discontent.  Hey, we all need to let it out sometime.  Just be cool and lend your brother a hand and take the time to hear their story.  Okay?
