Sean Pinchin: Rust Bucket Review

Rust Bucket is the latest from Sean Pinchin. Pinchin is a singer and slide guitarist with a talent that seems effortless. He is backed by incredible musicians who sound like they were meant to play together. They include Emma-Lee on backup vocals, Mark McIntyre on bass, Adam Warner on drums, and an appearance from Steve Strongman on guitar and harmonica.

The opening track “Broke Down Automobile” is high energy, short and sweet, has clever lyrics and killer backup vocals from Emma-Lee.

Pinchin’s twist on the blues makes the standard blues progressions come to life in a whole new way in songs like “Boo Hoo.” The guitar riffs are unexpected and pleasantly surprising.

“Comin’ Home” is a beautifully written song that showcases simplified guitar with outstanding vocals that reach up into Pinchin’s falsetto. Emma-Lee once again delivers backup vocals that are perfection.

Pinchin is a gifted guitarist and vocalist but one of his biggest appeals is his storytelling. This album is full of lyrics that will make the listener think “Yeah, I’ve been there, felt that.” One of those songs is “I Wanna Stay in Bed.” Everybody has had mornings where they’ve said that exact song title… and now there is a song we can sing along to about it.

The album drops on November 12. Be sure to take a listen!
