Kim Lenz and the Jaguars

The One and Only

Hightone

It’s been said before, and I don’t see a reason why it won’t always be said, but Kim Lenz is the real deal. The combo of Lenz’s wildcat voice (able to purr, croon and growl within a breath) and the Jaguars’ smokin’ rockabilly is a potent swig off an earthen jug. In true roots fashion, the lyrics are as suggestive as the swaying rollicking music – lines like “If you don’t like my peaches don’t shake my tree” and “You’ve met your match, I’ve met my flame” read like corny poetry in 7-point Garamond Condensed, but out of the pipes of Miss (oh, please be a Miss) Lenz, it’s enough to set your pants afire. Produced by Big Sandy, this is 100% pure and unadulterated. Sizzle and serve.

The fact that the band Slaves to Sirens exists is impressive, but that they live, love, and breathe to play metal takes things to another level. Sirens documents the journey. Review by Charles DJ Deppner.
