BoomBox: Downriverelectric

downriverelectric Cover Art

Downriverelectric is the sophomore album from Muscle Shoals duo BoomBox. The duo of Producer/Drummer Russ Randolph and Producer/Vocalist/Guitarist Zion Rock Godchaux, have the huge Muscle Soals musical heritage to draw from, as well as the Zion's considerable lineage as son of Keith & Donna Godchaux of The Grateful Dead. On Downriverelectric that heritage comes through loud and clear. Distinct R&B influences blend with house tinged synths and classic rock guitar to form a thoroughly modern indie album of Philly soul meets Toro y Moi disco punk music. BoomBox are a crisp, clean, eclectic mix of styles and textures, with a touch of jam band thrown in for good measure. Stream and buy Downriverelectric at the link below.
