ALBUM REVIEW: "Dirt" 

Lucid

"Dirt"

Self-released

rulucid.bandcamp.com

Straight outta Plattsburg, Jack, (that's in the Adirondacks for you and me) comes the casual, laidback groove of Lucid on its second studio outing, "Dirt." The album kicks in with "Cuerpo," its groove hinting at the Allmans, before sliding into the accelerated funk of "Black Smoke." The band shows it isn't afraid to boogie either with tunes like "People" (just dig that seriously fuzzed-out bass as it walks the bottom end as if on platform heels).

Lucid hits on all the groove spots and its curious cousins without sacrificing the jump, jive, and joy. So much more than a jam band here. I mean they've got Audio Influx and Buddy Guy alum, Chris "Hollywood" English beating the tubs throughout. Heyyyy, now!
