The featured selection from inside “Johnny’s Mailbox” this week is “Drowning.” As I mentioned above, it comes off the new album by Thorbjorn Risager and The Black Tornado. The album, Too Many Roads, is available now from Ruf Records. The band has been together for many years now, playing a unique and powerful style of Blues music. I mentioned in the show no one is making music like this; but I quickly amended that to note you can hear a distinct Tom Waits influence. It’s certainly worth exploring further.
