Charles Walker BandRelentless
Record Label: Ehlona Records
Review by John Noyd
Evolving from its blues roots into its current brand of hair-pin, dance-pop grooves, CWB’s old-school cool unspools pimped-out bounce and pumped-up funk powered by rubber-band bass, kick-ass sax and soulful vocals, Serving up first-class boogie tailored to get-down scoundrels, Milwaukee’s rhythmic ministers’ seventh full-length effort delivers muscle in their message for unrepentant strength to their devilish pleasures, rockin’ foot-loose moves from inner-city sinners and lo-rider vibes for simmering swingers. Hip-grinding heartache turns no-nonsense mandates into silky-smooth, party-hardy booty-shakes as, “Relentless,” placates, eradicates and demonstrates heavenly seventies amenities in form-fitting flash, flirt-worthy sass and trash-talking panache. Catch Walker and company’s steamy teasing hi-energy shows April 6th in Rochester MN and May 4th in Madison WI with stops in between in Racine, Eau Claire, Milwaukee and Chicago.
