Uncle Lucius cooks up the southern-fried guitar with a side of groovy percussion smothered in soul. Whether contemplating liquor or love, the Austin, Texas-based band stays true to its roots in Sly and the Family Stone and the Black Crowes. Wash that all down with some whiskey, listen to the live session on the Rhythm Section, and you will start to see what sets Uncle Lucius apart in the Southern rock field.

Uncle Lucius keeps things simple, and in this case, less is definitely more. The quartet comprised of Kevin Galloway (guitar and lead vocals), Mike Carpenter (lead guitar and harmonica), Hal Vorpahl (bass), and Josh Greco (percussion) proves that Southern rock is at its best with great guitars, drums and vocals. Galloway's voice melts over the shredding guitars and crashing drums like a preacher crying out to the sinful; except Galloway is more of a Homer with a guitar than a Ned Flanders with a Bible. Through the rough, lonely and even happy times, Uncle Lucius has been there with a beer in hand.

On "Liquor Store," Galloway sings, "Take me down to the liquor store, the devil's dealt me a rough hand." At times, the sound and songs suggest drinking alone in a dimly-lit, half-empty saloon, looking back on days with regret and dreaming of better ones tomorrow. Galloway offers advice to the regretful: "They cut my hair last winter. Ain't it the same?" Maybe there's nothing in looking back at the past. If that's the case, let's hope Uncle Lucius continues to serve a fresh perspective on an old genre.
