G. Love put on an astounding show last night at the Brooklyn Bowl.
The Philadelphia-born musician was joined by longtime bandmates Jeffrey Clemens (drums) and Jim Prescott (string bass) and, reaching back across their eight-album catalog, they played an energizing blend of blues, rock and roll and hip-hop.
The sold-out show found Love in fine form; filled with swagger, soul and heart, the frontman is as natural as they come. His voice is a cross between Paul Westerberg and John Lee Hooker and he’s got a loose-limbed effortlessness on stage that makes every number sizzle.
The band have a new album on the way later this year–it’ll be the follow-up to 2015’s Love Saves The Day–and the new tunes were cracking with nerve and truth.
