Big Something: Big Something

by Amy Burger on May 28, 2014

The self-titled sophomore effort from North Carolina rockers Big Something is an 80-minute party filled with everything jam fans love—an expertly-played, eclectic mix of rock, funk, jazz, reggae and more spaced over 12 songs, each with its own distinct vibe. Opening track “The Curse of Julia Brown” tiptoes in with a touch of synth, then lets loose a thunderous guitar riff and bass line, giving way to a tidal wave of horns. Combined with Nick MacDaniels’ commanding vocals, it gives every indication that this album is about to rock your face off. “The Undertow” feels like a day at the beach with its airy sax and sunny reggae rhythm. Raise-your-lighters-in-the-air ballad “Bright Lights” is the perfect closer. One listen brings on an urgent desire to see this tremendous six-piece tear it up live. Amy Burger
