GLIDE MAGAZINE REVIEW:
"Cedric Burnside Proves Fearless On ‘Benton County Relic’ - The best blues songs have an element of danger like they’re going to fall apart at any moment. It’s a feeling not unlike building Ikea furniture while drunk. Cedric Burnside’s Benton County Relic taps into that invigorating feeling of falling, perfectly slowing the beat of songs to create huge grooves and using raw guitar to accentuate the melodies.
Cedric Burnside is the grandson of North Mississippi blues legend R.L. Burnside. R.L.’s work can be described as wild blues, with manic drums and beautifully random guitar outbursts. Cedric, who played drums for his grandfather, has a similar sensibility. ...
Unlike my Tarva dresser, built on the strength of a six-pack, Benton County Relic will stand the test of time."
