Professed jammers the Waydown Wailers infuse a pugnacious, young-turk blues posture with plenty of rock-and-roll mojo and make a point of keeping their options open on any given track.  The upstate NY four-piece take the occasional unexpected mid-song instrumental turn which freshens up an already potent mostly-original set.  Standout tracks include “Another Bump In The Road”, “No Mercy” and “Back Door Woman Blues”.
