G. Love & Special Sauce continues their 15 year parade of mutated music that’s as special and it is unique with “Superhero Brother.” There’s not a ton to say about this record except for it’s added element of keys and piano on most of the tracks, a welcome layering tool. Other than that- this is a record that could be released 1998 just as easily as 2008- G. Love gets a little country/southern in a lot of places too with some harmonica and some bayou organs, but other than that this is pretty much standard G. Love, which if you like it, is solid. Most of the songs are made for a live audience, a good thing; a fan favorite at those shows will have to be “Who’s Got the Weed”… songs like that always go over good with live audiences… I’m not sure if they’ll pipe in the bong sounds or not. But they very well could you never. G. Love & Special Sauce’s latest album is just another G. Love record, and when it’s like your 8th album, there’s not a whole lot wrong with that.
