Andre Williams & The Sadies
Night and Day
Searching for wholesome, PC approved, feel good music to make your Sunday morning more relaxing? Better look elsewhere ‘cause the 70 year old Williams gruffly talking trash through these Sadies and Jon Spencer backed country, hillbilly, blues rock and psychedelic garage tracks won’t sit well with your easy listening brunch plans. However, if your Saturday night party is getting a little stale, this’ll heat things up. The lascivious Williams uses his weathered baritone to recite stories that seem at least partially ad-libbed, predominately about being black, old, poor — sometimes horny — in America. It’s grimy, raw, explicit and with a surfeit of F bombs, definitely not for the squeamish. But those familiar with Williams’ extensive history or even recent material (it’s his second album in the past six months), will find this 30 minute set a crazed, occasionally unhinged yet always riveting experience.
