EDITORS’ NOTES

Big Station arrives with a crash, as wailing Chuck Berry-esque guitar drives the listener into punky blues territory filled with handclaps and shouts of "oh yeah!" on “Man of the World.” Escovedo’s masterful songwriting and ambitious sound combine for this album, which marries poignant narratives like “Sally Was a Cop” with shadowy rhythms and powerful horns. “Party People” grooves with a bounce between its New Wave-y chorus and blues riffs, and the Spanish cover “Sabor a Mi” ends things on a gorgeous, wistful note.
