Gary Clark Jr.: Bright Lights EP

with one comment

“The (Black) Saviour of Blues” comes for Texas, and he knows his classics.

review gary clark jr bright lights EPThere’s nothing new about Gary Clark Jr. since his latest release. “The Bright Lights EP” only has one track you couldn’t find on the 2010 self-titled debut (the excellent ‘When My Train Pulls In’). The rest are remasters or live versions of past songs. Still, there is a little treasure sealed in these four tracks, crafted by a 27 years old Texas Bluesman, a 21st century guy whose best friend is a guitar. This isn’t 20 minutes straight of John Lee Hooker wannabe. Clark’s influences draw on Marvin Gaye, Hendrix or even on the pop-er side of Mayer’s take on the Blues. It is truly captivating and just like he sings on ‘Bright Lights’, you’ll remember his name…
