Is it fair to call a singer-songwriter derivative if the person he sounds like is his older brother?

I’m back, just in time for “East TX Rust,” which sounds like what might happen if Jerry Reed (as channeled by Ray Wylie Hubbard) invited Stevie Wonder to stop by the studio with his clavinet.

For all the talk about this being Robison’s divorce album, it’s the strong singing, the tangle of guitars and the driving production, not the lyrics, that make this the Bandera native’s best album to date. On his first album in five years, Robison gets his swagger back. “Feelin’ Good” may come close to trampling worn Pat Green territory, but Rich Brotherton’s mandolin and Robison’s happy-go-lucky vocals, give it the neccessary freshness.

Southern rock can be a scary term that conjures a triple bill- $ 10 at the door- featuring Molly Hatchet, .38 Special and the bassist from Wet Willie’s new band. But Austin’s Uncle Lucius takes the ’70s form to a soulful new direction on the debut LP “Pick Your Head Up.”

(no rating) Aug. 13, 2012 - Austin360.com | Austin American-Statesman - Peter Mongillo

On the first song on its new album, "And You Are Me" (out Aug. 28 on eOne) Austin-based roots rock outfit Uncle Lucius sings of existential resignation — birth, life, death, rebirth. With galloping drums, bottomed out horns and even a hint of Southern metal, it's sharper and more ambitious than the self-released 2009 album "Pick Your Head Up."
