Scott H. Biram Is "Still Drunk, Still Crazy, Still Blue"
Attention Houston musicians: you too can have your MP3s posted - if we think they're decent enough - by sending them here.
Austin gutbucket blues maven Scott H. Biram has long been a favorite of Rocks Off, both personally and musically. The dude's songs go down like a shot of Turkey and a drag off a Marlboro Red, and he helps wash away your own demons by letting his own loose. Biram's latest album,Something's Wrong/Lost Forever
( Bloodshot ), comes out next week and sees the man hitting a playful stride. His crusty howl has now mellowed into a sort of Nashville Skyline Dylan wheeze, but the album still comes complete with the requisite tape hiss and swamp-ass drumming that has been soothing savage Biram fans since his debut almost a decade ago.
Above is Something 's "Still Drunk, Still Crazy, Still Blue," which will no doubt sound way better spinning on a turntable in your garage on a Saturday night while you kill off a 12 of the Beast than leaking out of your computer's speakers. But enjoy it, because according to his Web site , Biram won't be coming back around Houston for a while.
