There’s a lot to love on this new album from Tommy and the Ohs, but the mid-point, late-night groove of “Mama Allcaps” stands out as a highlight. Blending country croon, oil-slicked rumble, and surf, the album is an unlikely pairing that works its magic well. The surf slips out to sea on this one, though, and the band dig into a dirt-flecked country-blues that’s sees guitars and fiddles go up against one another to see which can come out on top. Thomas Oliverio keeps his utterances to a minimum, letting this one roll in the instrumental mud, but when they surface they’re floating in a bit of a sun n’ smoke haze above the track. The band’s debut album, Mariposa Gold, is out now on Perpetual Doom.
