MAMIE MINCH with Dean Sharenow.

Mamie Minch, a longtime staple of New York City’s acoustic blues scene, pairs up with percussionist Dean Sharenow on her first album in a decade, the EP Slow Burn. On this collection of songs, you’ll find Mamie’s traditional influences stretch out, turn up, get deeper, groovier, funkier. The tracks include an R.L. Burnside piece reworked as a feminist future blues, a woozy folk tribute to Yves Klein Blue, in between some foot stompers a la Jessie Mae Hemphill and a few tender embraces in plain spoken poetry. Listening to Slow Burn is like unpacking a time capsule of American music that’s been stored in Mamie’s 1930’s National steel for decades and filtered with a modern femme sensitivity.
