Gravys Drop, a project from Nobunny drummer Billy Grave, released their second LP Gumball back in May, but I sadly didn’t stumble onto it until late last month. While Gravys Drop’s previous releases had heavy doses of twang (including an outstanding cover of Waylon Jennings’ “Waymore Blues”), Gumball almost seems like a tribute to great rock and roll from ’50s and ’60s. I’m reminded of Chuck Berry’s music throughout the album, but elements of doo-wop and surf rock create some great moments, as well. Definitely make time to listen to the LP below, which is available on vinyl from Spot On Sounds and cassette from Burger. You can catch Gravys Drop performing live a couple times this month – details are below the LP.
