CD Review - Ten Foot Polecats "Undertow"

Jim Chilson (Guitar) Chad Rousseau (Drums) Jay Scheffler (Vocals & Harp)

The new album from Boston's Ten Foot Polecats ‘Undertow’ is gonna drag you out to the woodshed and kick your ass,  a mixture of deep Mississippi mud, Chicago grit, Texas twang with flashes of San Fran psych layered as thick as the Boston molasses flood.

'Undertow’ Kicks off like fast moving freight train barreling down the tracks, with its smokestack spewing fire and sparks, geetar licks churning like steel wheels and harp hollowing like an unholy whistle, hold the hell on it’s gonna be a bare knuckle ride. Jim’s stellar guitar dexterity packs a wallop to every song,  Singer Jay Scheffler’s  diverse vocals and harp add distinct style flavors to each song from raw blues to countrified rocker, tying it all together are  Chad Rousseau’s unswerving beats on the skins like the steam engine stoker shoveling coal into the furnace keeping it full steam ahead.
