As hopeful as it is dark, modern as it is historical. City and country. MP3 and dusty 45. It’s autobiographical and all-embracing storytelling.
The album is rooted deeply in the interplay between Fulks and a brilliant cast of Appalachian-style slingers
An homage to a collection of songs that, in one way or another, dented Firewater main man Tod A's brain. Some daring and inventive deconstruction and reassembling.
A sonic scrapbook of that day, representing all the performers in the order they performed. 19 tracks and almost 70 minutes of highly polished and professional musicianship (ahem), mixed into the red, sho'nuff.
Clarifies what fans have long known, that there is more to the band’s enduring appeal than riffs and volume, there is the strength of, and in, their songwriting and stories.
Shows the world that Wanda is the real deal and an all-star cast celebrates the gutsy talent of an artist overlooked for far too long.
Boasts the tunesmanship of The Faces and the barroom howl of The Band. The album testifies to the soul-saving grace of rock n’ roll.
Swing Time was recorded live over a few nights where he is most at home: the stage of Austin’s fabled roadhouse extraordinaire, The Continental Club. In the glare of the stage lights, Wayne and his tick-tight band kick it out and rescue country’s heritage from the clutches of the Nashville pretenders.
A fascination with early 70's classic country, and some gen-u-ine Nashville soul, but also delivers a quick sucker punch to the past through literate, biting songwriting.
