Sam Morrow, "Heartbreak Man"
Morrow's forthcoming album Concrete and Mud, out March 30th, should be on the radar of anyone who loves greasy, crunchy, deep-fried Southern rock, and the track "Heartbreak Man" is a pretty damn good example of why. The swaggering kiss-off finds Morrow taking the perspective of a devil-may-care heartbreaker, all over thick, dirty riffs and honky-tonk piano. With a Seventies rock-indebted solo at the song's bridge, "Heartbreak Man" is a tune that'd do early Lynyrd Skynyrd proud. B.M.
