May 11, 2021The rugged Delta Kream captures the essence of what made this North Mississippi music so distinctive. While even this stellar lineup can’t truly replicate the dangerous backwoods stomp that injected a shot of adrenaline into the bloodstream of Carney and Auerbach all those years ago, it comes awfully close.
May 12, 2021This casual record isn’t meant to change the world, it is just a deep dive into the tunes the duo love; less a major release than a passion project but by adding Deaton and Brown to these sessions The Black Keys blues workouts on Delta Kream go down smooth.
May 17, 2021There are a few misses, however. ’Do The Romp’ is sheer bar room bluster, while ‘Coal Black Mattie’ seems to stray too far into the line of being merely copyist. Yet when it works, it certainly works – potent and atmospheric ‘Delta Kream’ undoubtedly has its heart in the right place, while the core material stands as some of the most addictive elements of modern blues songwriting.

I really enjoy the heavy base guit which is present in most of the songs. The only problem is that on some songs I find myself looking if this is still one song or if it went to another track because some of the riffs sound a little too familiar and after more re listens of the album I found it a little shame.
However, I really like the more blues and darker tones in the songs, which suits these two guys better.… Expand
