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.

Only Jesus!

There is no doubt in my mind that this is the best CD ever created! Scott H. Biram has matured since Dirty Old One Man Band, while his lyrical prowess has maintained that edge between making you laugh out loud and making you wonder if this guy is sick in the head. If you get anything at all out of listening to the 30 second samples, I personally guarentee that not one cent of your $9.99 will be wasted. Everyone I have played Scott H. Biram to has instantly gotten it. This guy is no joke. He's honest, catchy, gritty, heartfelt, and just simply the way music should sound. And no wonder, considering that as a local to Austin, Texas he draws on so many classic styles of music ranging from Country and Hillbilly Folk to Blues and Rock to even Punk. If you're still on the fence, buy "Been Down Too Long," "Graveyard Shift," and the sublime trio of "Only Jesus," "Long Fingernail," and "Santa Fe."
