With these bands and many others, Kroha built a Jack ODiamonds - Danny Kroha* - Angels Watching Over Me for his visceral approach to songwriting and performance, his unique voice and guitar style being the calling card for everything he touched. Angels Watching Over Me is the first full-length album Memoria - Murcof - Monotónu issued under his given name, though it's hardly a debut for this seasoned performer.
Over the course of the album's 16 songs, Kroha turns his muse toward folk, blues, and gospel tunes mostly plucked from the public domain, delivering these more traditional songs with all the raw grit that defines his more rock-leaning work. The rootsy feel of the album is enforced by traditional instrumentation washtub bass, mouth harp, dulcimer, banjo, and a one-stringed guitar-esque instrument known as a "diddly-bow" and rudimentary recording means, most of the album captured live to a single microphone during energetic sessions held in an empty house.
Rather than striving for some artifically manufactured vintage dustiness, however, the songs here find Kroha simply laying it down with a time-honored holler and a well-seasoned howl. Kroha 's sole original composition on the album comes in the form of "Run Little Children," a bustling blues rant that channels the greatness of Son House and some of the same sinister electricity as Howlin' Wolf. It's a captivating and enjoyable listen and further cements Jack ODiamonds - Danny Kroha* - Angels Watching Over Me as one of the more important talents of his time.
