Heartbreaker is a near perfect record, the kind that never gets dated, with songs that slowly work themselves into the our subconscious musical heritage.
Although the band wears its influences with pride, and "STOMP" features 5 road-tested covers of songs by The Wailers, Janis Martin, The Cramps and other favorites, The Dyes approach these oldies with an irreverence and vigor that is anything but retro.
Harkens back to Graham Parker & the Rumour’s genre-defining music of the 70s whilst paying homage to Dylan, reggae, soul and rock ‘n’ roll.
10 years after their last album, RH & the MB still have the wit and the wisdom, the sadness and the spark, of the finest top shelf honky tonk.
Recorded alongside "Single Mothers" as a double album, but as Justin began to sequence it, he felt each half needed to make its own statement and they took on their own identities.
The secret weapon behind many recordings by Nora O'Connor, Justin Roberts, Kelly Hogan and Robbie Fulks steps to the front of the stage.
Andrew Bird covers Robbie Fulks's "I'll Trade You Money For Wine" (with Nora O'Connor) and Robbie Fulks returns the favor with a cover of Bird's 2001 song "Core and Rind" on the B-side. Limited edition 7" vinyl single.
Easily his most fully-developed musical statement, the album takes Adams’ inspired songcraft and brings it into a more hard driving rock direction that will please the hardcore Ryan devotee but will also turn on a broader audience.
Jerry David DeCicca is the frontman of beloved Columbus, Ohio folk-rock band The Black Swans, who released several albums on Misra Records, distributed by Bloodshot. Understanding Land is his debut solo album which features guest appearances by Will Oldham (Bonnie 'Prince' Billy), Kelley Deal (The Breeders), Spooner Oldham, and more.
Folks are comparing the energy and spirit of this record to their game-changing Bloodshot debut Wreck Your Life...and we have to agree.
Single Mothers is comprised of ten tracks that showcase exactly why Justin Townes Earle is considered a forefather of Contemporary Americana.
Amy Gore and her Valentines have pure Detroit pedigrees in spades and the band’s dramatic stage presence demands attention – great song craft and unforgettable melodies will keep audiences in thrall long after that first glance.
Plunges into the wilderness of human experience, revealing Case at her most emotionally raw and yet, paradoxically, in steely control.
Influenced by generations of country music tradition, with debts owed to Webb Pierce, Jimmy Martin, Hank Williams Sr. and Ola Belle Reed + a bear hug of a rich voice =hard core country, my friends.
