Hello and welcome to Discovery Corner on BTR! I’ll be talking with Dustin Hill from the band Black Pussy. Talk about a name that grabs you. Hill has been receiving a lot of flak from the press lately for his choice words, but I give him credit for sticking to his guns. As you’ll find out, these guys are full of nothing but love and cosmic acceptance. No racism or sexism–just good ole rock and roll.
We’ll be checking out their newest record, Magic Mustache. It’s a stew of both old and new, and the first time Hill has been backed by a band in the studio. This record is suffused with the blues. Pentatonic scales burble out of the melt, and songs can occur as three minute pop songs or ten minute jam odysseys. But enough words, check out the tunes for yourself.
And don’t forget to check out the Discovery Artist feature on Black Pussy!
