Album · 2015 · 13 Songs. There's no question that Texas-based singer/guitarist Gary Clark Jr. can shred with the best of them. But on his second major-label full-length, it's his restraint that's his trump card. He gently dabs the minimalist blues-rocker "The Healing" with little more than a . King-style riff and a poker-hot vocal, keeping the song gorgeously unfussy. Just as expressive is the stomping "Grinder", which features a literally screaming guitar lick that mimics the line it follows: "My baby's crying/So now my baby's crying.
Gary Clark J. s versatility is both blessing and curse. The Austin ace’s 2012 breakthrough album, Blak and Blu, shuffle-mixed through blues roots; raw, Hendrix-channeling solos; glossy, modern R&B; and points between, but never quite figured out how to connect the dots. Three years later, his studio follow-up does - mainly by focusing on his unfuckwithable guitar. Clark carves out a Prince-ly room of his own with wah-wah-washed acid rock ( Grinder ) and ping-ponging, Bootsy-tinted funk ( Star )
It could be argued that the lyrics are the most noticeable improvement since the last record. Throughout the album there is a prevailing tension that helps the music feel all the more meaningful. Clark’s protagonist, probably himself, struggles to make his talent pay off while coping with the limitations of a life that keeps trying to prevent him from realizing his potential . In this day and age we should not only cherish an album like Sonny Boy Slim, but hold on to it tightly as we see what Gary Clark Jr. has in store for us next. Standout tracks: The Healing, Cold Blooded, Wings, Skippable tracks: Shake.
On his 2012 major label debut, Gary Clark Jr. was hungry for all the music he could get his hands on. He rose up out of Austin as a certified bluesman and killer guitar player, sure, but Blak and Blu also pulled funk, soul, and molten garage rock under its wide roof. What that album lacked in cohesion it made up for in spirit and a whole pile of hot licks. Three years later, The Story of Sonny Boy Slim smooths out some of that wayward fire, as Clark uses the album to comb through states of danger, frustration, and especially love.
