Detroit Cobras - Tied and true
While they'll never capture the low down and dirty sound of their earlier albums, Rachel, Maribel, and their revolving cast of characters continue to put out worthwhile records. This, Tied and True, is their latest offering.
Of course it's the usual obscure covers that they're known for, but as every other person who's spent a minute writing about this band would say: They make the songs their own.
In case you didn't notice, it's lazy journalism week here at ohrobot. No apologies.
Also, this platter was produced by my man, Memphis legend Mr. Greg Cartwright. That sounds like a guarantee to me.
