LO-FI ROOTS ROCK | Grey Watson

This is flat out nasty, good, and trashy. There's a cat responsible for this chaos swimming in the lo-fidelity and funky back beat. His name is Grey Watson, and I've been a fan for a week now. Formerly a member of the Killer Drones, he reminds me of the work Mikey James did with The Demos when he took strong songs of acoustic origin and electrocuted them. Watson's new album, "Ruins," is a boss collection of rough 'n' tumble fare with hints at everything cool thrown in. This is what's been missing in my life.

Grey Watson plays with Dangerbyrd on Wednesday, August 17, at Abilene Bar and Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. 8:30 p.m. $5. abilenebarandlounge.com; grey-watson.com.
