Album Review By JD Rich

Boston Rock Radio




Real and raw is the name of the game for this album review, with all attention focused on West Virginia for the self-titled full-length debut of The Mountain State’s very own Ducain. 

This is the kind of album that dances a fine line between Southern Blues Rock and Contemporary Country- minus the fiddlin’. Maybe Country-Rock? Either way, it appeals to a wide variety of music lovers, especially those who have become tired of unyielding riffs and mumble rock. Ducain does not insist upon itself. There’s a purity to the rawness, no need for heavy filters or intricate production effects.

Each song is clear and chock-full of stories that deposit the listener into each track, which allows us to use our internal mental video player. The album sets up multiple scenarios for ideal listening. First, my mind's eye took me to a secluded watering hole where friendly locals get together, shoot pool, and toss back a few shots as Ducain plays on the old jukebox in the background.​

Some songs put me in a rocking chair on a porch somewhere out in the southern hills on a dark, hot steamy night. Add a pack of butts and a big glass of Merlot (feel free to pick your preferred poison in this case), while listening to the deep, gritty tones of Ducain through a beat-up Bluetooth speaker.​

Yet another venue I pictured was a summer festival. For some reason, my warped brain had me at a biker fest. (Don’t ask me why. I gave up asking that question years ago.) Rough-looking biker dudes and hot biker chicks milling around with those party-mandatory red Solo cups, Ducain playing on stage, keeping the audience hypnotized with each verse... at least until a biker chick had one too many Solo cups and decided to drag her hapless biker beau to the front of the stage to dance. Yeah, we’ve all seen that at one point.

Ducain is the result of musical passion in Southern mountain culture. Don’t expect super high-tech big-city livin' flash and dazzle. This album is rooted in the simplicity of modern-day Blues-Rock, conveying a story from the soul in equal parts word and music. No rambling or superfluous riffs. No underlying political message or social rebellion. Just four down-to-earth guys, sharing their corner of the world in the form of easy-going authentic music. Hey y’all, Ducain is genuine, stripped down, and available now on all major streaming platforms here:
