[YOUNG GUNNIN’ IT] Listening to 29-year-old Gary Clark Jr.’s full-length debut, Blak and Blu, is like spinning a roulette wheel where the outcome is rigged in your favor. It spins freely, swiftly revealing alternating shades of the blues—i.e., reverb-flooded slow burners, fervent R&B crooners, woozy hip-hop laments—while keeping the earnest songs within the Austin-bred croupier’s glitzy grasp. Clark’s grab bag works, however, because he possesses the merciless guitar chops to back it up. Abetted by past influences as much as the present, his livewire performances have earned him slots alongside the Stones and Buddy Guy. Though a bit unpredictable, the gamble is well worth the admission price.
