MF'n OUTLAW country. Whitey and the boys play with a muscular attack and energy that fills the album with an edge that Nashville’s misplaced or forgotten entirely.
They sit at the crossroads of Americana and indie, where Alabama meets Arcade Fire, shakes their hand and takes them out for a drink.
That’s All I Need IS all you need to get the mood set to Good Times wherever ladies and smooth gents might want to mingle. It's a record of psychedelic soul and growling 4am slow jams with a solid rock and roll backbone.
Within the first song, you just know you’re hearing something special, that you are party to the unknown and exhilarating paths being explored by an artist on the creative ascendancy.
Roams o’er the vast landscape of American music without so much as a stumble.
A DIGITAL ONLY SINGLE
Sadly, the "2000 Funerals'" title is mournfully out of date. The song, however, becomes more and more powerful.
Confident and cohesive, the record is a dark treaty on the violent and self destructive tendencies of society at large. Ha Ha Tonka take listeners on a complex tour of the South...This record is spot on, dynamic, harsh but lovely. It’s a novel wrapped up into a record.
With 25 tracks, it offers an abundance of fine music, including renditions of Pioneers classics such as "Cool Water," romanticized portrayals of the West, sagebrush humor and rollicking instrumentals.
A sometimes sparse, sometimes exuberant blend of folk, deep country and wide-open spaces from this co-founding member of punk legends X. Subdued, but no less edgy.
Sadly reflective and yet hilariously surreal, the show mixes rock biography, live music and stunning visual effects to tell a tripped out tale of the demise of America's last living cowboy. And here's the soundtrack...
Rosie Flores—the Rockabilly Filly, and Jon Langford—head Mekon, Waco Brother and conductor of the Chicago-based collective the Pine Valley Cosmonauts, combine forces to blast a sonic contrail stretching from Texas to Wales.
Rock’s bread and butter is romantic tragedy. This album takes all that, crushes it up, and emerges with something new, crisp, compelling and incredibly intelligent. Sure, they rock, but they also read.
