Album Review

The Devil Makes Three may play acoustic instruments, but as anyone whose ever seem them live can tell you, they lay down a groove as hard as any rock band. Do Wrong Right is the band's first album cut with label backing, and while they add a bit of electric guitar and some pedal steel, the basic sound remains the same. They're still ragged, but right, to plagiarize the title of an old George Jones tune, and like Jones, Haggard, and the other iconic figures they obviously love, their blend of bluegrass, primitive country music, folk, rockabilly, Piedmont blues, ragtime, and a hint of punk is always put in service of the music. The quality of the sound may be slightly better, but all the rough edges are intact, as is their devil may care attitude. "All Hail" comes galloping out of the gate to kick off the album in high style. Pete Bernhard's slightly woozy vocals, Cooper McBean's anti-bluegrass banjo fills and Lucia Turino's snapping bass give the tune a drunken, rousing feel. McBean takes the lead on the tongue in cheek ode to hard liquor "Gracefully Facedown." It's a solid country tune that references Johnny Cash, and rides Turino's thumping bassline to deliver a bleary-eyed message of delightful debauchery. McBean's meandering solo adds the perfect boozy touch. "Johnson Family" adds a bit of Gypsy jazz to the mix: imagine the Hot Club Quartet visiting the Carter Family. McBean's banjo adds jazzy accents and guest fiddler Andy Lentz drops a bit of Grappelli into his solo. "Aces and Twos" is a raggedy blues with hints of jug band music in its rhythms. Bernhard's uncontained slide guitar duels with the rock-solid rhythms of McBean and Turino to paint another raucous portrait of people who live for the nightlife that's driving them insane. "For Good Again" tells the tale of a traveling band trying to make it in an indifferent world. Some twangy electric guitar gives the tune a honky tonk flavor. "Help Yourself" continues in the same vein with an amusing insight/excuse "There's a thousand ways to heaven and a thousand ways to hell." Despite the band's obvious devotion to the good times that may lead to the latter, musically they'll have you dancing through the pearly gates on the way to honky tonk heaven. ~ j. poet, Rovi

As a drummerless acoustic trio consisting of two guitarists and a string bassist, the Devil Makes Three are not your normal alt-country band. While deeply rooted in the blues and country music, they enthusiastically incorporate elements of bluegrass, ragtime, and jug band traditions as well. The group also makes no bones about its punk rock influences, and despite the lack of a drummer, it always plays with the needs of dancers in mind. Although the Devil Makes Three consist entirely of New Englanders...
