Ted Drozdowski from the album Coyote Motel available on Dolly Sez Woof Records
Music drifts into Coyote Motel like swamp fog, thick beats, a snaking guitar riff that flickers before erupting into a hungry buzzing, the sound coming together to form “Still Among the Living”, the opening cut on the recent release from Ted Drozdowski. Over the course of the album Ted Drozdowski tames feral Blues, shaping sounds into songs. Coyote Motel calms the screams of guitar strings with a trance groove (“Tin Pan Alley”), curves the tickle of percussion around the formidable march of six notes (“57 Flavors”) watches tendrils of guitar leads rise from a slowly beating heart of rhythm (“My Friend”), and spits out sonics that swarm like bees, landing to sting a stomping rhythm (“Trouble”).
Psychedelia can find family bloodlines in the Blues of Ted Drozdowski, the sound of Coyote Motel a raw sonic attack unafraid to be vulnerable, proud to wear its Soul on its sleeve. Fronting a band that borrows its name from the album title, Ted Drozdowski leads Coyote Motel on a tour, slapping a fat riff on “Los Alamos” like a suitcase sticker, pounding a path “Down to Chulaoma”, and wiggling into the drug-dream of “Frog Alley” as the album introduces “Jimmy Brown” with Rock’n’Roll rage and tells the tale of “Josh Gibson” on a confident beat to match the determination of the baseball legend.
