Album Review

Scott H. Biram has a sound as gritty as sandpaper. The one-man band owns his own style, which meshes the raw muddiness of blues, the rowdiness and down-to-earth simplicity of country, and the mutiny of punk. And with all this variety existing in nearly every song on Graveyard Shift, no two songs sound exactly alike. In fact, most of them are so starkly different from the next that it's hard to believe it's the same album. The title track is a raucous, messy punk-blues fusion and it yields to "Lost Case of Being Found," a mellow alt-country toe-tapper. The rest of the album follows suit, rebelliously howling and meandering through heartsick ballads, highway songs, and salutes to inebriation. Graveyard Shift is all over the place, but it's never chaotic. It makes perfect sense. No matter how different each song might or might not be from the next, Biram's soulful presence and gritty vocals tie everything together. It's tempting to try to compare Biram to other artists, in order to help describe such a unique musician. In Biram's case, comparisons are simply too vague. Though while listening to Graveyard Shift, one will likely be reminded of certain artists as unique as Biram (though he is a one-man band, which is exceedingly rare). His eclectic eccentricity is reminiscent of Beck; many of his songs are punked-out neo-traditionalist country — something he and Hank Williams III have in common; and the unprocessed blues riffs and unique rhythm that occupies much of his sound could stand up to a more intoxicated Lightnin' Hopkins. Biram's unique blend of his own attitude and a variety of musical styles make him accessible to all types of music aficionados. Biram's high-energy live performances are said to be the only way to truly experience his music, but Graveyard Shift will give you an idea of the unique brilliance you've been missing.

Scott H. Biram offers up a unique blend of "real" country, old-school acoustic blues, and punk, with influences ranging from Minor Threat and Slayer to Bill Monroe and Mississippi Fred McDowell. Biram is a one-man band, playing all his songs on a 1959 Gibson hollow body guitar and an amplified "stomp board," yet each song is unique, and Biram dishes out a rare sense of self-confidence and independence rivaled by the originators of outlaw country music themselves. Describing his music as "the bastard...
