The Blu Collar Glomeration has their music available on Amazon, GooglePlay, Rdio, Spotify, iTunes, and many more sites and apps. Sporting some well received albums, among them: “Angst and Horror”, “Born To Suborn”, “Arkansas Ambush” , “The Adventures Of Blu Collar” and “Woosamonsa!”, this collective project has gained a worldwide fan base. Notwithstanding the fact, they are a tough bunch to pin down.
The hard-driving rhythms of featured artists Francisco Benetiz, Ori Shlezinger, Bernie Katzman, Anthony Vincent, Sarah Pountney and the lyrics of David M Lujanac has captured the imagination of music lovers around the globe since the band’s inception. Their all-encompassing genre of rock traverses the landscape of country, folk, jazz, blues and also the rap genre. Just check out “Miz Daisy”. Especially prevalent is the blues of the culturally rich Mississippi Delta region where this group hails from.
Love them or hate them (and you’ll have plenty of reason to do one or the other!), there is no denying that Blu Collar Glomeration produces some of the most interesting musical recordings around. There is a load of conceptual continuity in their works, especially the biting references to the American socio-political scene within some of their recent lyrics. But this is for the intellectuals; mere music fans can get enough satisfaction from listening to Benetiz’s magical sax or the stellar guitar moments on their albums. Not forgetting the epic piano thrills, especially evident on the “Woosamansa!” album.
For the gritty six-string stuff, it may be better to fall back on the swampy, bluesy rhythms found on “Arkansas Ambush” and “The Adventures Of Blu Collar”.
If you’re a middle child, you’ll know that one of the benefits of being a middle child is that since your parents completely ignore you, you are left free to do pretty much anything that you want, including listening to music that your parents normally wouldn’t allow you to. Hence, if you’re a middle child then Blu Collar Glomeration should be in your media player right now –musically brilliant and lyrically irreverent, at times hilariously so, Blu Collar Glomeration has a way of making the absurd sound believable and credible…or is it the other around? Either way, they won’t leave you unaffected.
“Amerikan Justus” is the band’s latest track, as they build up to a new album release. It’s pretty obvious where the core of the matter is this time around for Blu Collar Glomeration, as they come out resolute on this one, mixing rap and rock n’ roll into one potent anthem for the movement against police violence and its usual racial connotations. The track hits so hard that it has been banned by some radio stations within the USA.
This track is great, even though it’s not necessarily as weird as a lot of Blu Collar Glomeration’s other groundbreakers. It has a straight backbeat where much of the impact is left to the direct lyrical content.
Blu Collar Glomeration usually has a strange sense of humor and a love of all things quirky. Their crossover-rock and free-form jamming style will never lose your attention. Filled with some of the most outrageously satirical lyrics and some of the most amazing guitar work mixed with some of the strangest rhythms, you will love the madness this band manages to distribute across their albums.
