Blackout Party – Closed Mouth Don’t Get Fed – Album Review

Blackout Party

San Diego band Blackout Party’s new album Closed Mouth Don’t Get Fed is a rough and tumble rock and roll record. When it swerves from its main alt country/Americana vibe, which it does occasionally, it toe dips into a sailor’s sea shanty, some bar room rag, and even a song that features a trumpet solo. It’s a dangerous tightrope to walk, and at times it comes precariously close to throwing the record off course. But the talent of the players and the rich vocals of lead singer Brian Howlerda keep the record loose and on course.

All of these faces of rock and roll icons, the rich colors that Patrick chooses and the depth of each piece–they have begun to carry that much more meaning.
