Chicago duo Redgrave offers up some nice swampflavored blues on their self-titled debut 7″ released on Lovitt Records. Guitars, drums and female vocals make up their sparse sound – with a surprising melodic edge not that usual for the genre to boot!

With The White Stripes creating such big waves for this kind of music (even though outfits like The Cramps, The Gories and The Oblivians pioneered it years earlier) you’d expect a copy cat band, but these guys manage to steer clear and offer up their own unique take on it. Full length album is due later on this year.
