Don Rousell is back with his new single entitled “My Wife and Girlfriend” (Feat. Shane Regal). I always listen to the opening track extremely carefully, or in this case the single. It’s the opening track the band or artists has selected to hit your ears first and foremost. The latest single release by Don Rousell entitled “My Wife and Girlfriend (Feat. Shane Regal)” sets the stage rather well for this artist as a single offering to the public.
All in all a great piece of music that stuck in my head and had me eager for what was ahead. In the moment this song felt comfortable. Besides the tight instrumentation I especially like the comical lyrics on this one. All in all the whole song is brilliantly delivered with a powerful blues-rock, guitar driven texture. At the same time it can keep you melodically entertained. The song possesses some serious melodic staying power. Music will remind you of a bit of Al Green and Sam Cooke with some great Motown harmonies thrown in. Call me crazy but I can even hear classic O-Jays. Rousell and company are a fresh new voice in modern blues which presents strong messages that are at times mildly depressing, but melodic and highly entertaining. Really that’s what the blues is all about – the raw truth. This single at times a bit melancholy and sad and will fail to lift your spirits. I don’t recommend you listen to this song on the day you get fired. At times the lyrics are a bit over the top and a bit obtuse. I doubt will appeal to a massive mainstream fan base. But who cares! The song is 100% real, not so overly- corporate sounding and a bit defiant in nature. Vocally Rousell has a signature tone and appealing timbre to call his own. When the ride is over Rousell will simply make you feel something powerful and exhilarating all at the same time.
Listening to Don Rousell and “My Wife and Girlfriend” (Feat. Shane Regal) is a real jolt to the senses – some good some not so good. If you want that emanating from your speakers you will discover Rousell shines like a priceless diamond. BOTTOM LINE – I highly recommend the music of Don Rousell. You should start this single linked above entitled “My Wife and Girlfriend (Feat. Shane Regal)”
