Tom Dyer is a Seattle guy with an inconsistent musical predilection. For I Aint Blue Anymore, his fifth album since 2009 and his eighth overall, he has abandoned some of the eclectism that marked his previous solo work and created his most cohesive album. Dyer: "I thought I was making a blues record all the way, but with covers of The Sonics and Captain Beefheart, Im guessing most people wont think that." Mix those two up with a love for Howlin Wolf, Son House and John Lee Hooker and you can probably stick a fork in this one.
This is a one man show. Dyer plays every instrument; he recorded, mixed and mastered the disc. The songs range from things written eons ago that were waiting for the right home to the traditional John The Revelator and this Junes topical There Be Killin (In My Town). According to Rob Lind of The Sonics, "The Witch was written to be slower." Dyer got that psychic telegram and here turns it into a grinding beast. I Aint Blue is a rich and compelling tribute to the influences of Dyers youth that stands on its own two hind legs.
