• In a six-track, meat-and-potatoes blues-rock concept album, Nick Miller & the Hustle Standard create an epic of the fictional life of The Brave Abraham Judah and his murderous adventures across the Wild West. The duo barbecued up a medley of American roots music: rock & roll, blues, Americana and western for the fourth installment of The Hustle Standard collaboration series. With howlin’ wolf yowls bouncing off hard-hitting drums, sludgy guitars and body-rocking grooves, Miller sounds like a time-honored, broken blues-man, while Hustle keeps the rhythm fresh and tight. They're channeling classic rock with a twinge of something out of a film noir Western and modernizing it with relentless, syncopated beat twists. The final product yields an ace-high sound that’s effortlessly vintage-cool, like a time capsule for what the blues-infused genre of rock & roll used to be.
