The Bloody Jug Band Launches A Contender For Best Record of 2015 With Rope Burn

Best Album Art of 2015!
As far as creative bands are concerned, The Bloody Jug Band just hit my radar with full force. This type of alternative rock music is one of the reasons why I love music in the first place. With their release of “Rope Burn”, they truly put down a record that is going to be on my top 10 records of 2015. It starts off a bit slow with “Volfkiller”, then it spirals out of control with some amazing elements. Mixing strong guitar driven melodies, interesting narratives in the lyrics, and strong vocals, this is a record that opens up like a horror movie and comes through with grindhouse precision, only a bit more polished.

There’s a “country” vibe that you get from some of the tracks, but it seems to be more in the way the lyrics are delivered. Strong and story filled, you are going to want to close your eyes and pay attention to the words. There’s a lot going on here, a story that is very easy to follow with each hand. A strong blues and country mix with strong percussion, and even harmonica like that found on “Dorothy Gale”.

As you progress through the record, you are going to be treated with a lot of songs that get stuck in your head. You’re going to be hard-pressed to not get some of these stuck in your head. I couldn’t stop humming the melody of “Dance with the Devil”, much to the chagrin of my cat. Apparently, they don’t like when you pick them up randomly and dance with them in mid-air. The mix of country, alt rock, and blues hits heavy with this record, and it’s something that I can appreciate.

The Bloody Jug Band really puts on a showcase with this record. It’s not just one sided, it has so many layers, that you’re going to want to listen over and over again. This creative reach makes “Rope Burn” one of the best records I’ve heard in a while. I love the cover art, and the stand out tracks make this 13 track release, your new favorite record. Just listen up, and you’ll be amazed at what comes through.

Don't miss out on this excellent release, and make sure to follow The Bloody Jug Band via their official website here.
