The Lucky Losers w/ Cathy Lemons & Phil Berkowitz (from the album Blind Spot available on Dirty Cat Records)
The good, the bad, and the ugly are destinations on the map as San Francisco, California-based The Lucky Losers steer into Blind Spot, their latest album release. Making good use of the NoCal talent pool, Blind Spot was recorded at Kid Andersen’s Greaseland Studios in San Jose, California, the guitarist (Rick Estrin & The Nightcats) acting as engineer and producer alongside Cathy and Phil. The slap of tires becomes the rhythm for “Last Ride” as dark distortion keeps the edge sharp and pounding drums snakedance a path into “Supernatural Blues” while The Lucky Losers charm with words drizzled over a trance-groove for “It’s Never Too Early” and strut on funk-driven steps to warn “Don’t Take Too Much”.
Vintage Rhythm & Blues mixed with Americana are the added ingredients for The Lucky Losers brand of the Modern Blues. Blind Spot spits words over a beat-bound rhythm with “Make A Right Turn”, one of the many suggestions made by The Lucky Losers on the album. Taking their show on the road has afforded The Lucky Losers a chance to view the world first hand, Cathy Lemons adding that ‘Phil and I have traveled some of the loneliest highways in America to bring our music to the people, and in all those travels what we see is a kind of distraction everywhere – almost to the point of madness. I feel so overwhelmed by all of this information pouring in from my phone, the news, from tragic headlines. Now that can be funny or it can be deadly. This album is about a separation from real experience – seeing life through a screen.’ Superfly-style riffs and production shine a light on “Alligator Baptism” as Blind Spot sashays down the sidewalk with “Bulldogs & Angels” and The Lucky Losers throw down a mighty groove for support to the confessions in “Love is Blind”.
