john greenwood This is such good old school blues music. Damn Turchi is tuned in to it, like he's summoned the old blues Gods themselves to inspire him. Just check out "Minds Eye" and see for yourself. You have to admire the authenticity and straight forward presentation of his unique style, this is the genuine article, delivered with a kick unapologetically. Favorite track: Mind's Eye.

about

After spending the last year navigating 60,000 miles of patchwork American highways, these songs were born from kudzu forests, engine drone, missed exits, and AM static. “My Time Ain’t Now,” TURCHI’s third release, showcases a wide palette of musical influences, carving stories from the landscape they’ve come to know all too well. When you’re lost it’s all a sign, and TURCHI has responded with songs about the places they found, the places they meant to find, and the situations they found themselves in.

Hailing from Asheville, North Carolina, TURCHI put one foot on the other side of the Appalachians for “My Time Ain’t Now,” tracking and mixing in the legendary Studio C of Ardent Studios (Led Zeppelin, ZZ Top, North Mississippi Allstars) with Adam Hill (White Stripes, Big Star, Dirty Streets), and having L. Nix Mastering cut the vinyl lacquers on their infamous original lathe (Elvis Presley, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Beck).

Feature Review in BluesRag Magazine:

Reed Turchi went for a drive. Sixty-thousand miles, 10 months and one life-transforming odyssey later, the ramblin’ man emerged out the other side. But you don’t need a stethoscope to diagnose that having literally lived on the road for so long-- alone, out of a van, songwriting senses heightened-- altered him. You just need to spin "My Time Ain’t Now", his guitar-heavy band’s new short (but not so sweet) record. Stylistically, the dour five-song travelogue makes a drastic about-face. Melodies are far more ethereal, his bottlenecking more syrupy, the droning more atmospheric, its gauzy haze even having mild psychedelic properties-- at least compared to what we’ve grown to expect from our favorite kudzu boogeymen. The title track is still home base, with its crashing jukehouse cymbals whipping along a north Mississippi groove that you can saddle up and ride (or at least grind to for a while). Everything else levitates above the bandstand. Listen to “Minds Eye” boil up into a fantastic series of opioid crescendos unlike anything they’ve reached before. Reed’s trademarked way of vocally drawling out phrases remains intact. The same goes for his lyrics, which have always provided plenty of wordsmithed proof that this isn’t such a pretty world after all. Lines here kick out about “waiting for the bullet I never see come,” taking knives to the heart and that oh-so-doomful reminder to “better bring a shovel, be expectin’ the worse.” Of all, “Ellicott City” is the biggest bummer, a eulogy for both his cancer-riddled uncle and those two 19-year-old women who were buried alive beneath a crushing black mountain of coal delivered by a freak train derailment there last summer. Workin’ its gloomy mojo as a soft backdrop of supernatural oooh-oooh’s and equally ghostly slide guitar float past makes for a, dare say, beautiful devastator. Rollin’ and tumblin’ blues of a new order.
