If there is any album one is looking forward to, it’s definitely Stripped Down Gussied Up of Pierce Edens!...I honestly can say that every song on this album is a true gem. This album is no. 1 on my personal 2017 list; hard to top!
Nowhere better can you see the juxtaposition in the music of Edens’ than right there. Because on “Stripped Down, Gussied Up” – his fifth independent release – he’s eschewed the blistering Appalachian rock n roll of his previous releases for something a touch more intimate and the characters he creates are not always what they seem.
Stripped Down Gussied Up’ is a wonderfully engaging release that hi-lights Edens’ evident familiarity with the rootsy traditions of his homeland. In reality, this is an album of singularly strong singer-songwriter merit driven by punchy, pushy fretwork and rhythmic power.
If you like a bit of aural experimentation and a twisted vocal delivering dark tales of small town North Carolina, then this might be just the thing for you.
The putting together of two things that should not work is at the very heart of “Stripped Down, Gussied Up” and on it, Pierce Edens has pulled the trick off superbly to create something that is rooted in the past, but very much looking to the future.
