The Roadside Glorious is bringing a versatile, unique sound from the eclectic streets of New Orleans. Last time this band was in town, it held a local “pre-release party” for its album “Brawn and Bone.” At that time, the single “Gone Girl” was the only preview of this Muscle Shoals-crafted recording. Since then, the full album has been released, giving listeners a deeper look into this band’s sound.
The Roadside Glorious has filled “Brawn and Bone” with horn-infused tracks that mix classic funk and soul with rock ‘n’ roll. However, songs such as “By the Roots” show this band can get its own brand of the blues with its Hill Country overtones.
The album’s opener “Lay Down Your Weapons” is quite a memorable track, one that will leave listeners rocking and rolling with its juking piano and rhythmic lyrical work. This band’s set will be a great way to start the weekend.
