The back-to-basics blues rock sound of Jordan Matthew Young, formerly Candy’s River House started out as little more than an idea while Roosevelt-born Young spent his early 20s learning to play—and live—the blues in Tennessee. Candy’s River House became the band it is now when Young returned to Utah and enlisted drummer Joey Davis and bassist Nathan Simpson to round out a powerful trio. Another Night, produced by Mike Sasich, is a thrilling, soulful 9-track dose of bluesy moans, beefy riffs, tight, towering rhythms and Young’s masterful songwriting. It’s a loud, proud record that appeals to fans of blues-based classic rock like Free and early ZZ Top, and relatively newer bands like Gov’t Mule, The Black Crowes and The Black Keys. And, since it adheres to the old unspoken 9-tracks-per-platter rule, it’s easy to enjoy in one sitting, with headphones unplugged and the volume cranked.–RH, KB City Weekly.
