’68 – Two Parts Viper

With time, Josh Scogin will be able to release music without it immediately being compared to his work in The Chariot. That time isn't upon us yet, as fans of the Georgia legends still hanker for them, tearfully screaming "long live" at anyone and everyone within earshot. The second release from Scogin's stripped down '68 project should help these lost souls in finding new comforts, away from the mayhem and maelstrom that The Chariot offered. Two Parts Viper is one part Southern Americana, one part ex-The Chariot Josh Scogin and one part wonderfully over the top rock and roll. But 2014's Humor And Sadness was made up of much and such the same measurements. Has the sound evolved enough for '68 to finally become a stand alone entity?
