The Devil Makes Three: Stomp and Smash | New Music Review


Submitted by -Kevin Adams Tue, 06/05/2012 - 8:51 am

The Devil Makes Three live release, Stomp and Smash is more than a title; it’s a review in itself. Recorded over two sold-out nights at the Mystic Theater in Petaluma, CA, these bluegrass Santa Cruzaders’ are hell bent with a raucous punk spirit. Spewing a sound about as smooth as whiskey, this trio of Pete Bernhard, Cooper McBean, and Lucia Turino are propped up by acoustic guitar, banjo, and stand-up bass. Stomp and Smash features bluegrass, jazz, and americana fiddler Andy Lentz. This live album boasts a cover of The Allman Brothers Band’s "Statesboro Blues" and two brand-new songs, "This Life" and "They Call That Religion”. Stomp and Smash: Live at the Mystic Theatre is sure to fire you up for live rockabilly debauchery. The Devil Makes Three will be rummaging through souls this summer festival circuit, with highlights including Bonnaroo, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, and Lollapalooza! For more touring info, visit:
