I Am The Albatross' most recent and self-titled album is quite a successful interpretation of gypsey/blues rock; a sound that describes the south well, paying homage with a tasteful reimagination.  The songs all contain a surly and hung-over haze, personified perfectly in "Strugglin": "Well, it's whiskey in the morning/Gin and tonic at noon/Pulling down the blinds in a motel room."  for a preview of what could only be a vivacious performance hit up the Empire Control Room & Garage tomorrow.  Stream the album below. -Rebecca Blandon
