Afton Wolfe (from the E.P. Twenty-Three available on Grandaflora Records) (by Bryant Liggett)
Afton Wolfe’s sound is a lot of things. Its Southern Soul and spooky, back-alley Blues, dark, Country noir and Indie Gospel, all delivered via the singer songwriter package. That may be a catch-all of a descriptor, but its apt in its placement because it catches all the sounds Wolfe is, sounds closer to each other than you think while also exercising some difference. Those sounds remain on display on his six-song EP Twenty-Three, a drifting yet punchy blast of audible roots with all its subtle and sly differences.
Dig into “Cry” and you’ll hear Afton Wolfe give his best blast of American Gospel; the cut builds as the back-up vocals sneak from one side, horns from the other, and aggressive guitar solo drops in as well. It’s also quite dramatic. “Truck Drivin’ Man” is an ambient, airy, and psychedelic dose of desert noir, while “So Purple” is a trippy blast of flute drifting Funk. “Late Nite Radio” is a straight ahead and lonely ballad, a fitting closer on a lonely record.
Twenty-Three plays like a collection of dark, short stories. Afton Wolfe is backed by a great band delivering the musical goods, but it’s his voice that keeps things on the guttural and gritty side, a great place for this record to be. (by Bryant Loggett)
