We gave it a B
As the title of It’s a Hog Groove! implies, the Austin trio Tailgators gets down and dirty on this album. Fleshing out their basic guitar-driven lineup with sax and accordion, they whip up a casual stew of rockabilly, blues, and zydeco, laying down grooves that are deep enough to bury a pink Cadillac. Though light on memorable tunes, Hog Groove! is roots rock at its friendliest and funkiest.
