Straight outta the box - Victor Wainwright can play some piano. I have had the chance to see him in person on several occasions and he is one dynamic and talented man. There's always the issue of how does this electricity transfers to vinyl (forgive me age here) ah to digital media (ugh that sound just so lame).

With 'Big Dog's Running' This Town' he starts off on the right track. Up tempo, fast-paced 'Big Dog...' tells the tale of the ladder of success and all the pitfalls that are planted in that road. With hot horns and solid vocals this cut sets us up for the next 'Ting Tang Bang' features some splendid harp work by Mark 'Muddyharp' Hodgson that certainly echoes the sentiment of the lyrics.

From honky-tonk to sexy vamped up strolls to Louisiana hot sauce syncopated second line joyfulness, Mr. Wainwright seems much at home with any form of American Roots Music. This sentiment is shown in the track 'Dixie Highway' an aural landscape of the South that recalls Randy Newman but just a tad more rural and less 'red-neck'. 'Weeds' is an asseverated re-visiting of the American work ethic done to the feel of a Louis Armstrong melody. 'Little Ol' Shack' which has a family good time feel to it, leads us into the title cut "Lit Up !'. As the horns lay down the base, we are treated a wonderful funky tribute to a lover that has him 'lit up, a burning flame' and his intentional, if not joyful, disregard for his mama's advice to NOT play with fire !

While his piano playing is superb, it is his vocals that are a pleasant surprise. Raspy, but not irritating, his voice is equally at comfort shouting and calling as he is pining or doing straight ahead vocal treatments. The band is a great fit to his sound and style, and the horns really fill out the sound-scape and make 'Lit Up !' sure to be one of the top releases for 2011.
