EDITORS’ NOTES

The Record Company’s first album is a fuzzy, sepia-toned fusion of primordial rock ‘n’ roll and R&B cool. Just a trio, they specialize in a brand of swing that is lean but tough, focused yet impressively adaptable. On “Off the Ground” they slide into a choogle that’s rippling and hypnotic like Slim Harpo’s classic swamp blues jams. “In the Mood for You,” on the other hand, punctuates loud, rattling, shambolic boogie with scorching harmonica, and uniquely intoxicating “Rita Mae Young” is a slice of Memphis-fried soul-funk.
