With SWAMPBLOOD the Colonel JD Wilkes takes the muddled influence of his new home in western Kentucky, pours it through the funnel of eerie south Louisiana bayou culture, and shakes it up 'til it explodes with the thick swamp blues of Slim Harpo. Though treading new ground, SWAMPBLOOD holds true to the Shockshakers' signature aesthetic, resting on the dark fringes of American culture, more interested in the sinister nuances behind of frequently Rockwellian facade. Musically, straight swamp blues swirls with rockabilly, minor key polkas, and industrial rock all draped over Bo Diddley's primal thumping heartbeat.
