Chubby Knuckle Choir
Reviewed by Jim Caligiuri, Fri., June 19, 2015
Taking a cue from Austin's Band of Heathens, the Chubby Knuckle Choir combines country, soul, and blues into Americana. The problem is, the local quartet's compositional chops don't match up, and their subject matter comes out cliched. Sample titles: "Gone," "Trouble," and "Treat Her Right." A high-flying live track cut at the Bugle Boy in La Grange, "Storytime" proves these guys might be more comfortable onstage than in the studio.
