Blues, Rock, Singer-Songwriter

One of the past year’s more acclaimed protest songs, Gary Clark Jr.’s “This Land” was a breakthrough not just for the lyrics, which attack his racist neighbors “in the middle of Trump country,” but for his guitar tone, hotter and thicker and queasier than ever. The Texas blues guitarist’s new album This Land is an argument that blues is compatible with modern electronic pop. With Jessy Wilson.
