Listen to Evil Eye
From the esteemed Norton Records label comes one of the wildest and most exciting groups of the current roots and blues revolution. Daddy Long Legs-named for its harp-blowing, blues-bellowing frontman, is a blues hollerer who blurs any definition by age or color. He growls, barks, yelps, and wails without sounding like an imitation of anyone or anything. This is simply pull-the-cord-and-let-the-snot-fly blues.
Their ”Evil Eye On You” LP was definitely not an attempt to domesticate the sound of Daddy Long Legs in a studio setting; the twelve cuts are wild and wooly and real. Infuse a few hisses and pops into the tracks and it would be easy to believe this music was recorded a few decades ago, but no – Daddy Long Legs is happening right now, boys and girls.
Esquire (SXSW 2015)- ”these drunken cowboys with fuzzy mics and rip-roaring harmonica solos are the most authentic band you’ve seen all week.”
