Electric Blue Watermelon
We love the name the North Mississippi Allstars have given their music: world boogie. They live up to it, too, offsetting their blues-drenched slide-guitar virtuosity with healthy dollops of hip-hop, funk, soul, and country. It’s sort of like the Allman Brothers Band jamming with the P-Funk All Stars, with LL Cool J guesting. The net effect is as delightfully novel as, well, an Electric Blue Watermelon.
