Lochloosa is Mofro's follow-up CD to Blackwater. It features a diverse array of material - no song sounds anything like another. I particularly like "Everybodys", "Pray for Rain" - hidden track,"dirt floor cracka", and of course "Lochloosa".
What can I compare the sound to? Nothing. This is swamp funk. It's got soul, it's got funk, and it's fried up in batter to taste good.
Sound wise, this has a great acoustic feel, with lots of headroom in the instrumentation. The slide guitar parts are well presented and performed (I'm a slide guitarist myself). Overall, it carries a much slower pace (in my mind) relative to newer releases, which is more congruent with Southern culture in general.
The recording feels a lot more honest in my opinion, carrying with it a feeling of live performance with minimal work done in post. While I myself have a solid background (16 or so years as of writing this) as a performing musician, and can appreciate rhythmic and overall perfection in a performance, there is such a thing as "too perfect". Too much time shifting, retakes and splices can seriously affect a recording to the point of causing it to lose the beauty of the performance. This album does not have that problem, in my opinion.
