Brighter Days (Alligator)

Mofro guitarist Andrew Trube, also of Austin funkateers Greyhounds, struggles to describe the band's sound on the video portion of this live DVD/CD. A documentary brimming with riveting concert footage recorded in Atlanta, the video portion of Brighter Days is the best calling card yet for this group's clear-eyed Southern rock and horn-laden soul. In a certain light, bandleader Grey comes across as Springsteen from the Florida swamps – in love with his roots, yet literate enough to make his message a universal one. The DVD contains three songs not found on the CD including the sly, sexy "Slow, Hot & Sweaty."
