Boston's the Deadly Gentlemen, led by banjoist and songwriter Greg Liszt, formerly of the alternative bluegrass outfit Crooked Still, may look like an old-time string band or bluegrass outfit on-stage, but the group's sound, which began as a kind of spoken word rap twisted around traditional tunes with a dose of punk energy and attitude, has evolved into a. much smoother and thought-out folk-pop sound on this set, their third album, and first for Rounder Records.
Roll Me, Tumble Me. Deadly Gentlemen. Roll Me, Tumble Me Tracklist.
In Roll Me, Tumble Me Greg has taken a big step to both develop and polish the sound of the band. The audio is superbly mixed and the musicians play perfectly. Sometimes it just doesn’t work for me though. What I don’t care for is the excessive harmony being used in the vocals. It’s indicative of the band’s complexity but leaves me desiring simple, clear sound. Speaking of vocals, some of the lyrics are a little poppy, rocky, and even hip-hoppy. Despite my reluctance to recommend the album to everybody, I put The Deadly Gentlemen at the top of my list for bands to see live (because I suspect this album is even better in person). I encourage anyone looking to expand their music collection to have a listen to The Deadly Gentlemen and see if they strike your fancy. If not don’t write them off, like all great music they are evolving. Listen to the whole album free here .

Just roll me, tumble me, Pop my bubble baby humble me. Go ahead and batter me with bitchery, or be buttery be savory, When I'm broke hey it's OK, pay for me don't pay for me. Alright then, screw me, be gloomy.
