It was hard to pick a song to feature off J Roddy Walston and The Business’ self-titled release. Each song is pure rock and roll gold. While trying to decide, I found myself rocking out to the whole album by myself in the midst of a crowded public area and was able to ultimately decide on “Used to Did.”
“Used to Did” does an excellent job of showcasing the energy that is consistent throughout the entire record. Far too many albums start off with a band like this and dip in the middle and are never able to recapture the energy they started with. I truly respect the bands that can put together and record that is great in its entirety. J Roddy and his business were able to do so with this record and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for some good old fashioned soulful rock.
These guys are on their way to the big time and this record should be a staple of any music junkie’s current rotation–it is easily one of the best from 2010.
Has anybody seen them live? I cannot wait till I finally get to catch a show.
