Freely and unashamedly mixing the hearts and souls of country, honky-tonk, rockabilly, blues and whatever else gets feet to tappin' and parties to hoppin'.
On their third record for us, The Riptones serve up a fresh blasts of roots music that is sure to shake your tree. Freely and unashamedly mixing the hearts and souls of country, honky-tonk, rockabilly, blues and whatever else gets feet to tappin' and parties to hoppin', this album will leave your stereo reeking of stale beer and secondhand smoke. We mean that in a good way.
The RipTones whip it out, beat your daddy eight-to-the-bar and get the carpet rolled up so you can scuff up the nice hardwood floors. "Rebel Rock Armageddon" is an A-Bomb rockabilly rave-up they just don't write anymore (cuz they don't HAVE to, right?), and "Plastic Love" comes off like the hit Dwight Yoakum hasn't recorded yet. The spaghetti-surf instrumental title track let's the new guy on lead guitar Michael Krasovech show off. The only cover, Hank Penny's "Army Blues" SHOULD be a Riptones tune...
Can the lover of true whip-smart roots music ask for anything more?
