Naomi Judd's favorite country blues trio, the Rev. Peyton's Big Damn Band, once again proves a fan favorite. And why not? The Reverend proves that you don't need heavy firepower to accomplish a loud, grinding, metallic sound, just a '30s-era resonator guitar and some quick fingers to play both treble and bass. That's not to mention the percussion: Washboard Breezy expropriates an instrument of women's work for a decidedly unfeminine use and Jayme maintains a pounding attack on the set and marching bass drum. A new album with a mid-sized indie and feature on CNN.com suggest the rest of the country is catching up. www.bigdamnband.com
