AlmostAGhost’s Top Albums Of 2012: #20. Gary Clark Jr. – Blak And Blu

Gary Clark Jr. Blak And Blu
when my train pulls in

It’s been a long while since I was really into blues guitar shredding, but it takes someone as ferociously skilled as Gary Clark Jr. to bring it back. He brings diversity to it, makes it modern: mixing soul and hiphop into the more typical blues rock grooves. He can straight-up cover Jimi Hendrix, finding his own space in the song. I mean, come on. How is that possible? Skills. And being a badass.
