April 8, 2016

I received an email from Dan Knishkowy, Adeline Hotel’s songwriter, a few weeks back regarding their debut, It’s Alright, Just The Same (out May 13 via Wild Kindness). It was produced by songwriter/composer Will Stratton. I took one listen of the track below and I was hooked. Here’s what Dan had to say about it [...]

White Denim – Stiff {album review}

April 6, 2016

Upon learning that Austin Jenkins and Josh Block had permanently left White Denim to join Leon Bridges, I had reservations about the future of the band. As good as Jenkins is, it was Block that I was really going to miss. His chemistry with bassist Steve Terebecki always left me in awe. Their ability to [...]

Michael Kiwanuka announces new album, Love & Hate – May 27th

April 5, 2016

The first time I heard Michael Kiwanuka was when I limped into Stubb’s after a long day of music and drinking. I had just devoured the best veal tenderloin sandwiches ever constructed and made my way into Stubb’s to see Justin Townes Earle. Well little did I know that I would stumble into to catch [...]

Diarrhea Planet announces Turn To Gold; covers AC/DC

April 4, 2016

Every year at SXSW, I drink beer all day and undoubtedly I end one of those drunken days under the sonic blanket of Diarrhea Planet. It is always one of the highlights and seeing the video of them playing Thunderstruck w/ Music Band really made missing SXSW this year even worse. To help ease the [...]

Black Mountain – IV (album review)

April 1, 2016

In twenty years when I own a spaceship and I am zipping around the universe drinking space grog and hanging with space luminaries, Black Mountain will be the house band for my ship. I know of no better way to describe Black Mountain than that fantastical image. IV, their first album in six years delivers [...]

March 31, 2016

Ice Cream are a four piece out of San Francisco that play a raucous brand of garage rock. Their debut, Sweet Creams is out in May via Burger/Wiener Records. The thing I like best about this tune, other than the fact that it rocks, is that it is nearly six minutes long. I love long [...]

Eric Bachmann -s/t (album review)

March 30, 2016

This album reminds me so much of Patterson Hood’s Heat Lightning Rumbles In The Distance. Not so much for the sound. And while the lyrics are brilliant on both, that’s not it either. Its that both artists are typically associated for having a guitar in their album. Yet both of these albums are centered around [...]

Margo Price – Midwest Farmer’s Daughter (album review)

March 25, 2016

“Wait, who’s this again,” seems to be a common response when you play someone her music. Unfairly labeled as the female savior for real twang, most people throw out country’s classic female artists when they hear a few tunes. But the most interesting one I heard was, “sounds like what Waylon would sound like if [...]
