Moonshine Bandits are a fascinating blend of Hank Williams style country, with hip-hop and rap. I find the musical blend irresistible. The music is creatively developed and has cleverly intertwined snippets of old song lyrics, famous name dropping, foul language, and absolute rebelliousness. I cannot relate to ANY of the subject matter, but it doesn't seem to stop me from enjoying it despite my distaste for the behavioral soup I mentioned earlier.
Perhaps it speaks to my inner rebelliousness; even those things I have no interest in doing...they're taboo and "naughty". One can blow off steam and in the privacy of wherever they listen to this music, one can belt out the disregard for the rules. Much like when as teen, I took great joy in belting out Aerosmith's "Big Ten Inch" song (despite the fact I would have no idea what to do with 10 inches if faced with the prospect). Sometimes being rowdy in word only, is more than enough.
You can listen to a sample of each song on this album (scroll down the page, click the "listen to all" button), to get the general flavor or watch the videos posted below. Or both.
This one has a Johnny Cash feel...to a point :-)
