REVIEW: Dillon & H2O’s “The New Blues Brothers” (EP)

For those who are unfamiliar, this is H20 of Yall So Stupid/Mass Influence fame, and Dillon has been making his music out of Atlanta for a number of years, so I’m sure fans down in ATL figured that it was inevitable these two would eventually meet and create fine sounds. As The New Blues Brothers they take each other to new places, venues, alleys, and rooms that perhaps the other has never been in. Some of the instrumentals are packed with nice layers of psychedelic and acid rock that may make some go “wait, this isn’t produced by” so and so and I’ll tell you that no, this isn’t produced by your so and so. When the EP reaches “Get Your Mackin’ On” (which finds itself within a late 70’s jazzy/funk/soul motif), I had hoped/wished that there was much more coming afterwards, because everything here sounded perfect together. I don’t want to make any demands, but I’d love it if you guys did a few more projects together. Highly recommended.
