Like the other bands Haynes is involved with, Gov't Mule is based on a classic-rock sound: hard, blues-drenched rock with a heavy bottom and epic scope centered around Haynes' blazing guitar work. But Mule is hardly one-dimensional, incorporating slivers of reggae, jazzy improvisation and R&B, while Haynes' vocals edge increasingly soulward.
Now a quartet including longtime drummer Matt Abts, keyboardist Danny Louis and new bassist Jorgen Carlsson, Mule arrives in support of its first studio disc in three years, By a Thread. Mostly recorded at Willie Nelson's Pedernales Studio, Thread features all hard-driving, blues-informed stuff played with sweaty intensity and designed for braying at the moon.
