Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears
Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears return with their most subversive record to date: an exploration of the sordid trappings of ego; isolation, consumption, waste and war. Sonically inspired by the hill country blues of Junior Kimbrough, cowpunk style of The Gun Club, and the southern soul of Stax, the album charts new territory with a heavy stream of lyrical consciousness. This is The Difference Between Me & You.
Recorded in their hometown of Austin, Texas, with Grammy award winning producer Stuart Sikes (The White Stripes, Cat Power, Modest Mouse) this familiar environment provided a “hands-on style of production with, open, creative interaction between the entire band [for the first time]” Lewis said.
The band’s fifth studio album works to explore the human condition through an impassioned and introspective lens. Mining his first decade of experience on the road, The Difference is influenced by a deep repertoire of sounds: the heavy grooves of Albert King, punked-up blues of R.L. Burnside, the storytelling of Bobby “Blue” Bland, and the soulfully layered horns of the Stones, are all omnipresent throughout.
