What a pedigree Cedric Burnside has. The son of celebrated blues drummer Calvin Jackson and grandson of blues-guitar legend R.L. Burnside, this American drummer/guitarist/vocalist perpetuates the family business with authority. Working with guitarist Lightnin’ Malcolm in the ’00s, Burnside wrought a solid blues-rock catalog that should have been at least as well-known as that of the Black Keys. Burnside’s latest album, 2018’s Benton County Relic, bears a resemblance to John Lee Hooker’s methodical, menacing blues, with his guitar slicing incisively like a rusty dagger and his drums hitting with the finality of nails being driven into coffins. Cedric Burnside’s music is righteously filthy.
