MEDIUM COOL. Everybody knows that the blues is happy music. Slow-to-mid-tempo melancholic rock ‘n roll is no different. There’s something about commiserating through song (especially one with a deep groove) that feels good, and makes one realize that shit’s not really as bad as it seems. For example, a few hours ago, I blew out the right front tire in my car. But I was literally 150 yards from the tire shop. I kid you not. Off and running in no time flat (terrible pun). And then there’s this: I got to listen to Luther Russell's “Medium Cool” (my fave album this year) in the car all the way through twice, including my fave track, “Talking To Myself”, no less than 6 times. Let’s see, what was I talking about? Oh, yeah: the subject of melancholy music. Here’s Exhibit A. If you’re coming out the other side of a rough patch in your life (and you will) or, regardless, you just wanna rock out to some passionate rock ‘n roll with a wall of jangly guitars, crank this one up. In your car. This one's for you, baby. (Lyrics available on Luther’s bandcamp page, but don’t read while driving.) Maybe it’s not so melancholic after all. Maybe it’s anthemic. Whatever, it makes me feel good.
