American Way is a new single from singer/songwriter, Blind Uncle Harry. He describes himself as a “hillbilly hippie shreddin’ folk rock.” If this latest track is any indicator, Blind Uncle Harry is an original performer with a distinctive style. His delivery has a clever, almost deadpan quality, making American Way an avant garde and intellectual song. Offering up social commentary on advertising, exploitation and the general state of how things are done in the USA, Blind Uncle Harry pretty much tells it like it is. He does it with a smile, up against a fun, folkish guitar backdrop. The female backing vocals are a nice touch and really enhance the sound. I highly recommend the video for this jam, which features Blind Uncle Harry performing on a billboard. The visual motifs really drive home the song’s themes.
