Five Mile Smile - Boogaloo Blues (2014)
Back after a hiatus which began in 2003, Ireland's Five Mile Smile are already hard at work on songs to re-establish their sound. One of those tracks is "Boogaloo Blues", a hard-edged blues rock song with ample humor and crunchy chords. The band keeps their heads down, focused on their work, though the vocalist gets to belt out some attitude of his own over the gritty low-down. Though it's only one track, it does a solid job of laying out their path from here on out, while leaving listeners hungry for more of their dirty-but-charming crassness. Keep an ear out for more to come, and be sure your spine is limber enough to handle all the shaking that will ensue.
