As you may or may not know, it can sometimes get pretty hairy working at a record store when some smelly, denim-clad dude walks in asking for the blues. If you’re lucky, he’s at least wearing a belt when you point him over to the records that are now relegated to an open spot on the floor. That’s just one scenario; who doesn’t love those other blues fondly recalled with names like Blues Addicts and Blues Creation? And let’s not forget that other queen of the blues—Barbara from Just Farr a Laugh. Blues Control might just be the missing link between Van Halen and legendary experimentalist Henry Flynt. They are a duo. Lea Cho plays swank but grounded atmospheric keyboard parts (think Harold Budd), through which guitar player and manipulator of assorted junk-on-table Russ Waterhouse cuts, whittles and lays to waste. It’s a hazy, spaced world that exists between fuzzed distortion, jabbering electronics, and a lazy, stay-in-bed psychedelic glaze, with rhythmic keyboards pulsating below it all a la a guy named Florian—and you can choose which one you want. Oh yeah, I gotta mention the humid bikini-vibe that permeates the entire album. So, is there a blues angle to it? Yeah, but you’ve got to bury yourself in it or dig your way in. Come out stinking if you want.  “It’s like the soundtrack to Rainbow Bridge—if it were in the Caribbean!” —Tobjörn Axelrod, Bus Rider
