Early Times & The High Rollers (from Electric City available on Dealers Choice Records) (by Bryant Liggett)
Early Times & The High Rollers can get lumped into the Blues category, and that’s an apt categorization. On Electric City, their recent release, they prove to be much more. Electric City is a fun release that nods to multiple side-styles of the Blues while also doling out a hearty dose of Roots and Americana. First, the Blues. “Aloha, Leilani” is a spoken word/sung opener about a beach dude splitting from his woman, “Orphan Train” is guitar heavy Chicago Blues, and “Heartbreak Insurance” is slow, gritty, and so-sad as frontman Early Times rips through all the items that go in a divorce. Early Times & The High Rollers also drive a big Blues bouncer when the step on the gas pedal for the revved up “Tippin’ Through the Tulips”.
Moving away from traditional Blues “Good Soul Music” is a Ska-loving, Rock Steady beat with Bobby Rush on vocals and “American Kid” is a straight-ahead blast of Roots Rock reminiscent of something coming out of Southern California in the late 1980’s; a killer track that shouts out to The Beat Farmers all the way down to the guitar solo that wraps the cut. Early Times & The High Rollers get funky on “Tips for the Crew” while “Dark Chocolate” is loaded with innuendo, and closing with the groove-heavy instrumental in “Succubus”. A great way to close out Electric City.
