An Alabama twin spin will transport the audience across a wide spectrum of sound, with Infant Richard & the Delta Stones providing local support. This collective of talented musicians has been responsible for some of the best new sounds coming out of the Azalea City. The six-piece reportedly owes its fresh music to “getting weird and having a good time,” and has pleased crowds from Callaghan’s to Azalea Manor.
Infant Richard & the Delta Stones has been introducing crowds to its latest effort, “The VD EP.” With a creeping sax and Symone French’s sultry vocals crawling through the track, “Jack Squattery” serves as a good introduction to the album and the band. “Chattanooga Chocolate Factory” is a superb modern jam song marked by versatility. This is a band whose live interpretation of its songs should improve an already good thing.
CDBD brings its jams to LoDa by way of Tuscaloosa. The band’s trademark “joyfunk,” a musical concoction melding roots rock and jam with funk overtones, is infectiously danceable. Its sophomore effort, “Joyfunk is Dead,” is ironically named. The tracks on this album present a musical style that is thriving and evolving.
