J Roddy Walston & The Business - "I Don't Wanna Hear It"


"I think listeners get an energy from us that they've been missing elsewhere. Our music is like a gospel revival. If you let it, it can take you where you need to go." - J Roddy Walston, as told to Spin

Leave the lo-fi bedroom recordings and self-conscious introspective art rock at the door. J Roddy Walston and The Business—officially Everybody Taste's most overlooked band of 2010—play rollicking in-your-face white-boy-boogie-gospel that rushes along with the attitude and quirk of Jerry Lee Lewis and the no frills heavy-guitar thrash and vocal rasp of great punk music. The mean piano-playing, Tennessee-bred Walston and his Baltimore-based band have filled a long vacant niche in contemporary music: rock & roll. Specifically, the loud and fun kind.
