Overview:
With his career-defining third record, Morrow should cement his place as a member of Los Angeles’ country elite. ‘Concrete and Mud’ is a confident album, rooted in Texas twang, southern stomp, and old-school funkytonk. Recorded largely live in the studio on a vintage Neve 8068 console with producer/engineer Eric Corne at the helm, it also shines a light on Morrow’s strength as a songwriter, front-man, and bandleader.
Musically, this is Sam Morrow at his electrified, energetic peak. The sad-eyed sounds of Ephemeral and its 2015 follow-up, There Is No Map, both written during the early years of Morrow’s sobriety, have been replaced by something more representative of Morrow’s live show, in which he fronts a band of plugged-in roots-rockers. Accordingly, ‘Concrete and Mud’ doubles down on a blend of countrified funk and guitar-fueled southern rock, shot through with train beats, Telecaster twang, bluesy slide guitar, swirling organ, with Morrow’s big, booming voice front and center. There’s balance, too. For every swaggering country rocker like “Heartbreak Man” or “Good Ole Days,” there’s a gorgeous,
emotional punch to the gut like “San Fernando Sunshine” or “The Weight of A Stone.”
“It’s about the fabric of America, and how the Mississippi is a metaphor for what binds very different people together,” says Morrow, whose album builds a similar bridge between opposing camps: country and rock & roll; the West
Coast and the American South, concrete and mud. “The sentiment is,” he adds, “the things that unite us are stronger than the forces that divide us.”
