Blind Uncle Harry presents: The Gospel According to Blind Uncle Harry
May 2020 Blind Uncle Harry is back on the scene with a distinctive studio album titled “The Gospel According to Blind Uncle Harry.” The release blurs the lines between blues, Americana, gospel, and folk, going for a diverse approach. This has traditional elements in it, but it also quite innovative, especially when it comes to creating upbeat melodic textures, at times reminiscent of indie-folk acts such as Bright Eyes or The Tallest Man on Earth.
The beautiful opening track, “Long Lonesome Tune” is actually a great example of what I am talking about. In addition to that, “Sunny Afternoon” is perhaps one of my favorite tracks on the album, due to its care-free arrangement and personal vocals. This track has a 70s vibe, but it also reminds me of some 60s alt-folk music, such as earlier Bob Dylan. “It’s All Fucked” goes for a country blues vibe, and it goes for a earnest, upfront feel!
