Your Daily Lick: The Blues Gangsters

The Perils of Life (Furious Babyface Records)



This debut begins hesitantly but gathers steam as it moves along. At 8 songs and 31 minutes, it's just long enough to test its blues-meets-modern-rock meddle and leave a memorable impression. The five members' extensive experience dating back to the early-1980s "Che Underground" scene in San Diego means it's probably just how they wanted it.
