Your Daily Lick: Crooks/Walsh Blues

Crooks/Walsh Blues EP (self-released)

Bare-bones blues from Berkeley: Deborah Crooks on vocals, Alex Walsh on electric guitar. Five songs. Thirteen minutes. The back-to-basics style leaves little room for personal touches in the vocals (Well it’s raining but I don’t care/Yeah it’s raining but I don’t care/I came home last night and you weren’t there) or in the frugal, gritty guitar work.

Debora Crooks performs at Cafe du Nord (2170 Market St., San Francisco) on November 17. 8 p.m., $12
