It’s Friday today and RUST Magazine is looking at a long, hot weekend and the soundtrack to our adentures is definitely going to be Dave “Hurricane” Hoerl’s new album Un-Twisted. It’s the first time this award-winning A-lister has released an album under his own name, though he’s had a rich career in the blues for about 30 years now, and it’s a sweet, delicious treat that we cannot resist. Dave’s relaxed, confident style and intricate performance skills have led him to record and perform with people like Mike Bloomfield, Albert Collins, Percy Mayfield, Big Mama Thornton, Little Joe Blue, Kenny Wayne, Powder Blues, Russell Jackson, and many, many more truly legendary folks. This guy’s got the blues all the way down to the root of his soul. Along with a cadre of fellow bluesmen from the Vancouver scene, Dave Hoerl lays down the hotness for 11 songs, all winners. Un-Twisted is a fresh and individual take on classic blues, and it’s an album you will enjoy for years to come. Our favorite track is Fight of the Century, with Soul Mate and Snake Charmer also as stand-out tracks. This is an artist with an amazing history presenting himself individually for the first time, and it’s double extra groovy. Check it out!
