IF SOME FILM STUDIO EVER DOES A REMAKE OF CAMERON Crowe’s Almost Famous, Leroy Justice would kick ass reprising the role of the fictional band Stillwater. Well, without all the Hollywood drama and all. We’re talking about music here, and Leroy Justice encapsulates the bright beams of ’70s-era American rock: lyrics that actually tell stories, impassioned melodies, good hooks, a hint of country heritage in the guitars and vocals, and show-stopping dynamics. The ebb-and-flow of Leroy Justice’s guitar textures are crafted by vocalist/guitarist Jason Gallagher and co-guitarist Justin Mazer, and the effect is just as striking in live performance as it is on the band’s first majorlabel release, Above the Weather [Elm City/Capitol].
