With their long-awaited debut album, Down to the Styx, psych-Western duo Crook & the Bluff (Kirk Dath & Tad Wilford) have established their identifying sound—an unholy joining of tripped-out Western psychedelia and dirty desert blues—and proven that they're masters of mood. And oh, do things get moody. Dense layers of reverberating guitar slowly grow into ground-shaking crescendos, then fade into ghostly atmosphere, over all of which echo Dath's deep, booming lead vocals. And always looming at the center of the album is the ever-watchful desert, which, in Crook & the Bluff's hands, seems to take on a personality of its own. One important aspect of Crook & the Bluff that Down to the Styx captures is their penchant for loose, meandering guitar interludes, which gives the album a sense of wild vastness. And although there are some songs that feature tighter, more conventional blues-style songwriting ("Greenbriar Coal"), the most spine-tingling moments happen when Crook & the Bluff gradually build hypnotizing tension and then suddenly unleash all the power of their dual guitars, like on the deliciously wicked "Down to the Styx," which will blow your hair back.
