Jon Spencer Blues Explosion : Meat + Bone

For all the gushing praise that a lot of critics heap on “back to basics” bands like the White Stripes and Black Keys, there hasn’t been a group since that has done dirty, scuzzy, stripped-back rock’n’roll as well as the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. On their first album in eight years – Meat + Bone, out now via Boombox/ Mom+Pop Records – the trio (Spencer, Judah Bauer and Russell Simins) sound as raucous as they did back in 1991, mangling punk, funk, soul and hip-hop swagger like hungry young pups and effortlessly showing the current generation’s pretenders how it should be done. Listen to the album in full at Rolling Stone now; opener “Black Mold” is below.

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
