Cadillac Flambe 

When: Sun., Nov. 13, 7 p.m. 2011
Price: cover at door
Cadillac Flambe's debut release, Live at Knuckleheads, comes on like a train — one you miss. Opener "Long Black Train" churns and builds, all sweaty palms and short breaths, like someone racing through a station. Then the second track, "Death of Me," starts, and the cars pull away — and confusion, given voice by an excess of harmonica, reigns. What the hell happened? The local blues band's formula sounds right, with light drums and stirring husband-and-wife singing and an all-originals track list, but almost nothing here finds its destination. An uneven sound mix is partly to blame. The disc was recorded on Knuckleheads' outdoor stage, with an emphasis on drone over Delta and honking over riffing. The last track, "What Do You Think," with vocals from Havilah Bruders, almost saves the album, but Live is mostly lost.
