They don't make them like Baltimore's J Roddy Walston & the Business anymore. This would have been Harry Nilsson's favorite band — maybe even his chief younger foils — had he lived to see them. At it since 2002,the group is now road-seasoned vets, touring with the likes of Deer Tick while tapping out their gospel-tinged classic rock. If you have any predilection towards the swampy areas of Bob Dylan's catalog, or the entire Leon Russell and Dr. John discography, then the Business will fit your ears finely. Last year's self-titled LP is still percolating more than a year since its release, and the sonic similarities to Exile On Main Street aren't fashionable decorations to lure in the older folks; "Pigs & Pearls" could have easily been recorded at Nellcôte. We'll stop with the heavenly comparisons and let you figure out J. Roddy & the Business for yourself. Randy Newman on speed. Okay, now we'll shut up.
