Clutch: From Beale Street to Oblivion

Clutch has always managed to sound like a band out of time, but perhaps no more so than on the veteran quintet's latest album, From Beale Street to Oblivion. Whether it's the slow-n-fuzzy "White's Ferry," the retro stoner blues anthem "Electric Worry" or even the nu-metal twists blurred with Stevie Ray Vaughan guitar heroics on "Mr. Shiny Cadillackness," Clutch proves it has moved away from its metal and hardcore roots to a more classic-rock-oriented sound albeit a dirty, sludgy and occasionally bluesy one. Clutch recorded these dozen tracks straight to tape, adding to the retro groove of an album that already references Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Blue Cheer, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Motorhead.
