The Groove Nashville

Vinyl LP pressing. Popa has not stopped working. He followed the 2020 release celebrating his 30th anniversary (It's A Mighty Hard Road) with an introspective outing reflecting his time at home: Tinfoil Hat. The year that has followed has lead to more upbeat themes and times. This is strongly reflected on 2022's Emotional Gangster. And indeed the emotions run high on this recording. 11 tracks featuring The Chubbfatha on many instruments and doing all the mixing and recording duties. The real gems here come in Popa's original compositions. 'Equal Opportunity' is a light-hearted sing along that celebrates the feminine at a time when it is seriously needed. And songs like 'Fly Away' and both French and English versions of 'Why You Wanna Make War?' are big standouts ! There is more than an ample amount of pure guitar bliss on this record and slide guitar on tracks like 'Tonight I'm Gonna Be The Man' add flavor to a savory mix!
