Backwoods Payback, Order of the Owl, Musket King

When: Thu., March 22 2012

BACKWOODS PAYBACK No reason to leave the boogie out of heavy music — and Backwoods Payback doesn’t. Yeah, this Pennsylvania band owes plenty to fistfights ’n’ whiskey gutter rock a la Clutch, but there’s also a heavy-lidded, bong-rattling, weed-smoking (let’s not kid ourselves here) Southern blues-swing. There’s enough riff-worship here to make Sabbath fans happy, but there’s also a passing similarity to a ZZ Top 7” played at 33 1/3 rpm instead of 45. (Corbie Hill)
