Album Review

When is a Todd Snider album not a Todd Snider album? When it's the work of Elmo Buzz, which is the story behind Snider's 2016 release, Eastside Bulldog. For the uninitiated, Elmo Buzz is an alter ego Snider created so he could play club shows without violating exclusivity deals with promoters, but instead of just using a different name, Snider gave Elmo a distinctly weird personality all his own. As imagined by Snider, Elmo Buzz is a crazy guy living in East Nashville who is obsessed with booze, girls, cars, and Hank Williams, Jr., not necessarily in that order. To take Snider at his word, for his Elmo Buzz shows the band consists of whatever friends who show up by showtime, and most of the songs are made up on the spot, with "Buzz" free associating lyrics while the band bashes out basic three-chord rock. Snider took the Elmo Buzz concept into the studio for a couple of free-for-all recording sessions, and the result was Eastside Bulldog, which is easily the loopiest and hardest-rocking album Snider has delivered to date. Here, Snider and his pals sound like they're well oiled and wired on a combination of cheap vodka and Mountain Dew, and they bash through these tunes as if they're playing the last set at a frat party on Saturday night while dodging a barrage of beer cans. They also sound like they're having a great time, and if Snider's lyrics here aren't exactly poetry, they're the work of a smart guy having a lot of fun playing dumb, and the rollicking energy of this music is no joke. Eastside Bulldog doesn't sound like a typical Todd Snider album, but it's very much a product of his irreverent wit, and if you're looking for some tunes to turn up the party in the 30 minutes before last call, this could be just what you need.

Singer/songwriter Todd Snider first garnered attention for his timely alt-rock satire "Talkin' Seattle Grunge Rock Blues," a folk-rock song that struck a chord with younger people fed up with angry alternative rock bands, and at the same time, appealed to aging rockers who grew up with the folk revival of the 1960s. Snider was born in Portland, Oregon, and grew up in Santa Rosa, Austin, Houston, and Atlanta. After moving to Memphis in the mid-'80s and establishing residency at a local club named...
