R&B & So Much More

When you put the new Black Joe Lewis and The Honeybears record Scandalous into iTunes, its blissfully ignorant simplicity lists the genre as “R&B.” And while there are R&B flourishes, the categorization does a major disservice to the music. The Austin-based six-piece has hit a nerve with its sound: a glorious, barnstorming mix of soul, blues, punk and indignant, righteous rock ‘n’ roll....
