Sam Morrow: Gettin' By On Gettin' Down (Red Sky Vinyl)
Artist: Sam Morrow
Title: Gettin' By On Gettin' Down (Red Sky Vinyl)
Label: Forty Below
Product Type: VINYL LP
Vinyl LP pressing. Sam Morrow's Gettin' By on Gettin' Down is a modern album that revisits - and reshapes - the primordial sounds of hip-shaking rock & roll. These nine songs are rooted in grease, grit, and groove, from the swampy soul of "Round 'N Round" to the funky syncopation of "Rosarita" to the hook-laden rock of "Money Ain't a Thing." There's hardly an acoustic guitar in sight; instead, amplifiers and guitar pedals rule the roost, with everything driven forward by percussive rhythms that owe as much to R&B as country music. Written and recorded in the wake of the tour for Morrow's breakout record Concrete & Mud, Gettin' By on Gettin' Down doubles down on the electrified fire and fury of Morrow's live shows, with a road-ready band joining him on every song.
