Greyhounds

¡No Más! (Luther)

"I'll take you to the KFC and buy you a combo dinner," sings guitarist Andrew Trube on "It's Alright" from ¡No Más!. The platter serves as an apt metaphor for this song cycle, unpretentious funky grooves dripping with grease and thick organ riffs oozing like gravy. The Austin-via-L.A. duo of Trube and B-3 tickler Anthony Farrell is joined by local drummer Dave "Sniz" Robbinson on the majority of the set. While Greyhounds are more Brother Jack McDuff than Archie Bell & the Drells, "Tight It Up." will have you dancing just as well as you walk, and "Clap Your Hands" succeeds in its mission to put your palms together. Opening teaser "Thunderbird" is piercing (an inside joke perhaps?) and the lyrics secondary, but ¡No Más! won't cry uncle where groove's concerned.
