You know when a band just knows how to finish songs with a 2-3min jam in a minor key that just makes you move? That’s exactly what this album does. Every song has you wishing you were seeing them live right that very instant. The opening track, “Anyhow” is so catchy and the horns towards the end are so dam haunting and then Derek Trucks comes in with a typical master-class guitar solo that makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up. I will admit that I am not such a huge fan of Susan’s lead vocals all the time but I respect them so much for their songwriting skills and their musicianship. The title track “Let Me Get By” is so reminiscent of the Allman Brothers that if there was a male lead you would think you were listening to a lost Allman Brothers track. They also throw in a David Bowie cover towards the end of the album “Oh! You Pretty Things” which happens to be one of my favorite Bowie songs.
Here’s them on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concerts last month;
