After their succes album Get Up!, Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite decided to make another record together. The two won a Grammy award for Best Blues album. Earlier on they released the first single of the new album Found The One which is a promising preview for the rest of the album which is out on March 30th.

No Mercy In This Land is a record made by two musicians who have lived. You can hear it in Ben’s singing, which moves from a soulful croon to a cathartic yell. And Charlie’s playing, always a thing of wonder, is absolutely transcendent, his lines dart and weave around the rhythm section with periodic moments of absolute virtuosity. It is a record that exists on the edge, the songs venturing out on to an emotional precipice. You can hear it when they are rocking, and it’s on the ballads, which will break your heart into pieces.

14.04 LIVE @ La Madeleine, Brussels
