Flo Morrissey announces debut, Tomorrow Will Be Beautiful 7/17/15

April 28, 2015

Flo Morrissey is one of those natural beauties, sort of like those old Ivory soap commercials. She also possesses a beautiful natural voice that sounds like it was plucked out of a Village coffee house in the 60s. Her debut, Life Is Beautiful, will be out on 7/17/15 via the fine folks at Glassnote Records. [...]

April 27, 2015

Following on the heels of Courtney Barnett’s xxx of America, Australia’s Milk! Records is set to unleash yet another Australian to take over our shores. Fraser A. Gorman. Gorman’s looks have been compared to a young Bob Dylan. My first thought was that he is the doppelganger of Ha Ha Tonka’s Luke Long. His music, [...]

Doug Burr – Pale White Dove [album review]

April 23, 2015

I sort of stumbled across Doug Burr right before SXSW. Hailing from Dallas, Burr only played one or two sets down in Austin. Luckily for me, one of those fit perfectly in my schedule. And while I typically like to shy away from 6th on the weekend nights, Burr was playing in one of the [...]

April 20, 2015

A few years back during SXSW, we made our way over to The San Jose of their South By San Jose blowout. The main draws for us were J. Roddy and Alabama Shakes. It was a beautiful day, beers were going down like water and troubling was brewing. The lineup was as follows – J. [...]

Lilly Hiatt – Royal Blue [album review]

April 17, 2015

From the minute I heard Royal Blue, I couldn’t help be reminded of Lydia Loveless. Both seem to encapsulate the conflict a woman has been brashness and vulnerability. While Hiatt is also steeped in the world of twang, it seemed to veer from that outlaw, bad girl sound that Loveless perfected on Somewhere Else. A [...]

Alabama Shakes – Sound & Color [album review]

April 15, 2015

Let’s face it. Brittany Howard is a once-in-a-generation talent. Her voice can bring you to your knees one minute and have you charging into battle the next. And while she may be the star, the fact that she was able to link up with three other amazing musicians at such a tender age is fortuitous, [...]

Waxahatchee – Ivy Tripp [album review]

April 13, 2015

I was on the fence about Waxahatchee, aka Katie Crutchfield, prior to SXSW. I dug some of the tracks on her prior album, Cerculean Salt, but not enough to really rope me in. So when the SXSW Gods slipped her on to a Tuesday night showcase with Ryler Walker, Steve Gunn, TORESS and Angel Olsen; [...]

Blackfoot Gypsies announce new album, Handle It 4/14/15

April 10, 2015

I first caught wind of Nashville’s Blackfoot Gypsies right before SXSW when I stumbled across the video for Don’t Know About You. It has everything one could want in a video – women’s rugby, golf carts, a bus, skateboards, canned beer, trick shooting w/ BB guns, grilling meat and a dude playing spoons. And while [...]
