More about Samantha Crain and The Midnight Shivers’ album, Songs in the Night:

With their debut full-length, Songs in the Night, Samantha Crain & the Midnight Shivers deliver a shudderingly beautiful unique batch of songs in a style that’s been described as “meshing freak folk with a deep-seated, dust-bowl soul.” The 22-year-old Shawnee, OK‚  native’s haunting voice, well-chosen words and emotional depth ring true in a way that sets her apart from most artists of her generation. Picking up where her critically acclaimed 2008 Ramseur Records EP, The Confiscation, leaves off, we find Crain presenting each song with an unfeigned fervor as her voice rises and falls over the panorama painted by the Midnight Shivers and their roots-infused, fertile arrangements.

More about Paleface’s album, The Show Is On The Road:

More than a decade since his last major label release and collapse from alcohol abuse, PALEFACE, a founding member of NYC’s Anti-folk movement, is back with The Show Is On The Road (Ramseur Records).‚  The album is an intimate, 11-song diary that transcends genres with its ingenuous lyrics and deceptively unassuming style -‚  just Paleface on acoustic guitar and harmonica and his girlfriend Monica “Mo” Samalot on drums and backing vocals, along with the occasional piano overdub. Paleface is the sort of artist who brings you into his world. His voice is sweetly ravaged and effortlessly expressive, as intimate as a friend whispering in your ear. The album is a farewell love letter to his longtime home, New York City, and an embrace of his new life in the South. Visit on MySpace.

Here are the title tracks for each upcoming release:
