Watch ‘em Charleston down the line, the Soggy Po Boys have whipped up another batch of red-hot tracks that’ll leave you reaching for a few extra napkins. Smoke, the fifth and forthcoming studio release from the group, represents their first full-length as a septet. Eight new originals highlight the band’s ability to “transcend the bounds of geographic pigeonholing” by mixing a bit of New England with a whole lot of New Orleans, and a few standards pace what is arguably their most seasoned showing on record. The boys sound comfortably at home, allowing the strongest part of the SPB experience to take over; the performance. It’s as if you’ve grabbed a seat right next to the stage on a Tuesday night at 328 Central Avenue in Dover. Clinking pint glasses punctuate the spitballing of smutty banter between bandmates and soon music emerges. The joy is audible, the energy is palpable, and the subtleties of musical conversation between close friends are on full display throughout Smoke.
