Shadow Giant – Honkeytonk on The Moon
Graven Earth Records – 2017
Rock, Southern, Blues, Stoner, Sludge
The debut album Honkeytonk on The Moon by Hammond, Louisiana, USA born quartet Shadow Giant sounds like it was recorded at the bottom of a beercan. And that just shows how mad these cats must be and how they must enjoy their beers. We can only state that we would definitely toast the hell out of the night or afternoon or morning with these guys. Judging from the songtitles they also know their fun and not to take things too seriously. And that is just what you want from this kind of heavy southern rock. Infused with the almighty blues, some stoner and some sludge the four of them give us five humid and sweaty tracks that stand out in laidback grooves and steady marches to the bar. Yes, there it is again, more alcoholic references. This is not music one should serve to a wavering alcoholic. It will definitely make him jump from the wagon and guzzle every bourbon bottle and beer chaser he can get his hands on. And I will be right there drinking my fill with him and whooping it up with Shadow Giant and their rowdy Honkeytonk on The Moon!
