Dave Arcari - Got Me Electric

(Buzz)

DELTA BLUES

Scottish bluesman Dave Arcari has been pumping out rough-hewn nuggets of punky blues for years, and while this fifth album maintains that momentum it’s something of a one-trick pony. Slapping and picking away on his guitar, growl of a voice ever present, the songs are undeniably heartfelt, but it does become a tad wearing over the length of a full album. The production doesn’t help, failing to capture the visceral thrill of Arcari’s live schtick, but in an era when Seasick Steve has become a musical name to drop for similar stylings, Arcari deserves any goodwill that comes his way.
