One of my most favorite SXSW 2012 lucky discoveries this year was the killer folk/blues/roots music of CADILLAC FLAMBE from Kansas City, MO. Actually, to be more precise, the band calls it “blue-eyed Americana psychedelic soul.” And that’s precisely much more accurately precise. “Devil’s Branch” leads off from the Porch with a twangy funky guitar intro, and then wastes no time firing-up the foot-stomping, harmonica harmonies. If it doesn’t take you back to some memories of “Jackson” on this, we’ll beg you to tell us where it does take you. “Playing With Fire” is a slow and subtle mid-afternoon chill-out. Havilah’s crazy beautiful vocs take center stage on this one, with more killer harmonica play (damn, brother…this band’s gonna miss you big time). (read the entire review HERE).
