Today, Bloodshot Records released an important album from Roger Knox. Roger Knox is an Aboriginal Australian Country & Western singer and is known as the Koori King of Country or Black Elvis in Australia. The album features many familar names such as The Sadies, Bonnie Prince Billy, Sally Timms, Kelly Hogan and Andre Williams.

I just gave it a spin on Mog and I am glad I did. The songs are a collection of songs written by Aborigine artists. Knox is got a thick as molasses voice and tunes are a great brand of upbeat twang. The lyrics, however, are deep with meaning.

Jump out of the comfort zone and give this a spin. I think you’ll be glad you did.
