Shovels & Rope to release O’ Be Joyful on July 31st

by Woody on June 28, 2012

Shovels & Rope are comprised of Carrie Ann Hearst and Michael Trent. For a duo, they sure make a whole lot of racket. Down in Austin, I was talking to J. Roddy and I asked him who he had been checking out during SXSW. Shovels & Rope was his answer and he told me I would love them. Well, I did and I do. Been real excited for this release. Here’s a little teaser video for the upcoming album.

Hey Woody, these bands you’re finding have got serious soul. And the harmonies again. Nice!!! I have to check Shovel Rope out. I’ve rediscovered good music in the 21st century again. Literally. I was looking back at the 80s for musical inspiration when it has been right here!! Insane right? Thanks again.
