Luke Winslow-King annouces Everlasting Arms to be released on 9/30

August 7, 2014

Luke Winslow-King and his wife Esther Rose put on one of my favorite sets of SXSW ’14 at The Continental Club. They played tracks off their fantastic 2013 debut, The Coming Tide and some from Everlasting Arms. Based on that, I am going to go out on a limb and say, “Everlasting Arms is going [...]

The Spider Bags – Frozen Letter (album review)

August 5, 2014

Garagicana!!! (pat. pend) I just googled that word and it doesn’t exist. Even double-checked on Google’s whiny little brother, Bing, as well. Nope. Garagicana, the exquisite mix of Garage and Americana. Making up utterly useless words is what happens when the family is away and I sit around drinking cool ones listening to new music. [...]

Christopher Denny – If The Roses Don’t Kill Us [album review]

July 31, 2014

During SXSW ’13, Christopher Denny had the 8PM slot for the Partisan Showcase. A relative unknown, without a new album out, the club was half-full at best. Earlier that day, I got some of the lowdown on Denny’s troubles with addiction that led to many problems, one being the interminable delay in following up 2007′s [...]

Greylag announces s/t debut 10/14

July 30, 2014

I stumbled across this Portland trio prior to SXSW ’14. Put them in my little notebook and all. But sadly I never crossed paths with them. But now it looks I will be able to right that wrong soon enough. Greylag have just been signed to Dead Oceans and their debut will be out on [...]

The Barr Brothers are following up on their excellent 2011 s/t debut with Sleeping Operator. The first track is delta blues mixed in a hint of Tinariwen.

Emily & The Complexes announce Dirty Southern Love EP August 19

July 22, 2014

Emily & The Complexes began on the road. While his peers moved into dorm rooms and attended lectures, singer/songwriter Tyler Verhagen took to the off-ramps, truck stops, and 24-hour diners that are the unseen epicenters of a hitch-hiking sub-culture. For the better part of two years, Verhagen criss-crossed the country with nothing but a backpack [...]

John Moose – Vilan

July 21, 2014

I recently caught a First Aid Kit show and it was fantastic. I suppose that makes me an expert in Swedish music. Coincidentally, I received an email from Swedish folk act, John Moose, and enjoyed the tracks. Here’s what they had to say. Enjoy. John Moose is a band with its roots in the woods [...]

Trampled By Turtles – Wild Animals [album review]

July 18, 2014

For the first time, Trampled By Turtles, stepped outside their comfort zone and spent more than a couple of days recording an album. They brought in Alan Sparhawk of Low to handle the knobs and hit the record button. And while I am not a Low fanatic like some, their ability to meticulously craft beauty [...]
