Editorial Reviews

We are excited to announce that Black Joe Lewis will release their brand new full-length LP, Electric Slave, on August 27 via Vagrant. Most of the album was produced by GRAMMY award winner Stuart Sikes (White Stripes, Cat Power, Modest Mouse) and recorded at Church House Studios in Austin, TX. Three of the new tracks (Skulldiggin, Dar Es Salaam, My Blood Ain't Runnin' Right) were recorded and produced by John Congleton (Explosions in the Sky, St. Vincent, Okkervil River) at Elmwood Studios in Dallas.
Commenting about the new album s title and thematic elements, Joe himself said: Electric Slave is what people are today with their faces buried in their iPhones and the only way to hold a conversation is through text. The next step is to plug it in to your damned head. Nothing is up front anymore and people are de socializing.
The band have also just unveiled an upcoming North American tour supporting Electric Slave. The band will hit the road beginning in September, playing a number of shows along the east coast including a show at New York's Terminal 5 on September 26 with Okkervil River and Pickwick. Pickwick will support on a number of dates.

I grew up on punk, funk and blues. This back kicks ass in a million ways. In the 80's Bad Brains was a NY/DC hardcore punk and reggae band. They took heavy criticism but for their fans they were 2nd to none, an all original act on a scene inhabited by grimy white kids. Today Black Joe Lewis and The Honeybears have melded rock and funk into a panty dropping music party. I love it. I don't know the artists names in this band, I don't know what they look like, but this is the 3rd album of theirs that made it to my car and I'd party with the Honeybears if they were in Tampa. People should worry less about their aspirations in the realm of internet music critique and just enjoy the jams.

This is a loud Rock/Blues album. This album is a breakaway from earlier Joe Lewis album's in the sense that the HoneyBears horn section dont announce themselves with every track. This album is aggressive climatic and exciting. The 11 tracks grab and shake you ,like track 2 "Young Girls" where Lewis proclaims..."I don't want no Young Girls' or "Dar Es SaLaam" a heavy guitar groove that emits early 70's late night Hard Rock. The horn section makes a brief interlude on "Come to My Party" a fast paced jam with the horn section performing alongside a groove minded guitarist. "Vampire" comes on like some West Texas Blues number with winding guitar chords to boot.There have been some who have complained about the sound production of this disc,but this session was recording too sound garage and rough it sound comes across showcasing the band as a working Rock band more so than a studio band pretending to be a working Rock band,it is obviously an apparent different direction in terms of sound from the previous "polished" Black Joe Lewis records.One Review had this at 2 stars,I thought this was interesting,but then when I looked at what recordings this reviewer was giving 4-5 stars,I didn't find it all so shocking at all that this great record would get only 2 stars....you have to at least know Rock&Blues to know what Black Joe Lewis is trying to accomplish....a Marvelous explosion of clashing guitars and poetic lyrics to match!

I can't understand the two star review by the first reviewer! True, this cd is not in the same mold as "Tell 'Em What Your Name Is" and "Scandalous", but what the cd does do is link Black Joe Louis closer to Mick Collins. There is the funk and soul of the previously mentioned cds, but this cd chooses to include some full blown rockers. Do not construe this as a sell out, but consider this a nod to the most prolific black artist who has melded soul, funk, garage, and punk into one mean ass SOB. Of course, I am refering to Mick Collins. Buy it, you won't be disappointed!

The Austin, Texas rock band known as Black Joe Lewis (led by Joe Lewis on lead vocals and guitar), is charting a different direction on their latest album. Dropping the band moniker “Honeybears” along with the cuddly image, Electric Slave might be described as a Django-on-acid soundtrack. Nowhere is this more apparent than on the opening track “Skulldiggin,” which opens with a massive attack of psychedelic distortion and raw-as-punk vocals. But like a film soundtrack, the mood of the album changes constantly, with subtle but complex references to soul, R&B and funk entering the mix. “Young Girls” is more garage rock, propelled by a guitar riff that calls to mind Chuck Berry, while “Dar es Salaam” is a perfect storm of dueling guitars and blasting (but right on the money) horns. Other album highlights include the Hendrix-esque “My Blood Ain’t Runnin’ Right,” the funky disco “Come to My Party” featuring a Nile Rogers-style chunking guitar riff, the nearly 7 minute bluesy rock masterpiece “Vampire” complete with wolf calls and a sinister honking sax, and the closing track “Mammas Queen” which will leave your chair vibrating for at least 30 seconds after the music stops. Though many of the songs have ghoulish titles and lyrics, Lewis claims the album title refers to the masses who are slaves to their iPhones, as well as his fear that hardwiring electronics into our brains is the next step. Either way, Electric Slave is a killer album, sure to hold you in thrall. - See more at: [...]

I heard " come to my Party " on wxrt in chicago and was blown away . I went and listened to some of BJL songs on you tube ; How does a talent and a sound this large stay hidden? I know one persons music anothers noise but I think everything musically is upside down almost deliberately.

The least talented, most vulgar crass acts are on top and groups like Of Monsters and Men, Calexico, Arcxade Fire to name a few have to be found out . Is it a deviance type of thing where the bizarre becomes normal and what is normal is now bizarre? whose agenda is being served ?

I am a big fan of his first two albums with the Honeybears. I don't know if they are the missing ingredient here, but this album seems to lack some of the variety of the two prior. Additionally, there are a few tracks where his lyrics are unintelligible. That being said, there is plenty here that I still enjoyed. The man has a talent for fuzzed-out guitar hooks; the first track provides ample evidence of this. If you're just beginning with Black Joe Lewis, I would recommend either of the first two albums before getting into this one.
