    Eddie Taylor 100th birthday celebration & tribute w/ the Taylor Family (Larry Taylor, Demetria Taylor, & Brenda Taylor), Steve Bell, John Primer

    “Ladies and gentlemen, this is Eddie Taylor, the man that made all the great Jimmy Reed records, all the John Lee Hooker records, and all the Eddie Taylor records,” gushes the emcee. “Ladies and gentlemen, the greatest guitar player in the world.” As preserved on Still Not Ready for Eddie, recorded live at Antone’s the year of its GOAT’s demise on Christmas Day 1985, the club owner’s not lying. Musketeered by three additional axe-grinders (Hubert Sumlin, Luther Tucker, Jimmy Rogers) and electrified by Snooky Pryor’s harp and pianist Sunnyland Slim’s pedigree (Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Little Walter), Taylor burns. Nearly all band members belonging to the blues’ postwar migration from Mississippi to Chicago, the Antone’s Records release blisters open atop “Bad Boy,” gets randy with “Knockin’ at Your Door,” and beams bright lights via “Bigtown Playboy,” all three Taylor tunes matching covers of Muddy Waters and Elmore James. Famously jamming with the talent, Clifford J. Antone returns from the beyond to promote this centennial. Six of Taylor and wife Vera Burns Hill’s eight children became performers, so the five survivors reunite Friday to reignite, plus guest John Primer. “That was Eddie Taylor, big town playboy,” concludes Austin’s giddy host. Ghost notes courtesy of Antone and his esteemed heavenly comrade.

    Trouble in the Streets (single & music video release), Viben & the Submersibles, Casual T [control room]

    Friday’s gig serves as a single launch for “Can I Breathe,” and you can already imagine how the crowd will go off when Trouble in the Streets detonates that song onstage. A balance of tranquility and explosiveness, it begins with Nnedi Agbaroji plaintively repeating the titular question, then crescendos into a volcanic electro-rap section where she breathlessly rhymes over bass drops and intense synth stabs from multi-instrumentalist Andy Leonard. It’s an in-your-face compliment to November’s “Dreaming of Forever,” a sprightly electronic pop song urging people to see past their differences and relate, and both lead into the electronic/hip-hop/R&B/rock trio’s forthcoming debut LP on Spaceflight Records. Prime yourself with the sleek, fresh funk of Viben & the Submersibles, and bass music maestro Casual T.

    Dry Cleaning, Nourished by Time [outside]

    Florence Shaw’s surreal lyricism and droll, charmingly English delivery fused with Tom Dowse’s jagged, abstract guitar to make Dry Cleaning’s New Long Leg one of the buzziest Pitchfork-approved debuts of 2021. For October’s Stumpwork – spelled out in hair on a disgusting album cover – the South London post-punks reunited with exalted producer John Parish for an insular follow-up that slows where its predecessor raged, reveling in creeping bass and atmospheric effects pedals. Baltimore’s Nourished by Time opens, delivering melodic rap and lush R&B with a similar penchant for hazy instrumentals.
