13-song compilation of off-kilter original Xmas songs and unlikely covers by Bloodshot artists and friends. The collection runs the gamut of garage rock, doo-wop, honky tonk, surf, and more. From the traditional to the subversive, there's something for everyone's stocking.
Informed as much by the wide-open landscapes of her homeland as the intimate writing circles of Nashville, 'Don't Talk About It' may range far and wide but always maintains a firm sense of place. Echoes of first wave UK power pop and jangly punk intersect with the every(wo)man indie and pop-inflected muscle of Best Coast.
Hey all you witches, warlocks, goblins, ghouls, DC comic nerds and sexy lumberjacks!
Have we got a trick or treat, emphasis on TREAT, for you!
Collection of Lydia Loveless’s summery 5-song EP Boy Crazy, on vinyl LP for the first time, plus six non-album singles and B-sides.
Four Lost Souls is pure Americana, not just because of where it was recorded or who played on what track, but because it is beyond the news of the day. It is a travelogue of sorts; it goes to a place where the differences between country, soul, blues, and rock-and-roll are blown aside by the warm languid breezes.
To celebrate our 15th Anniversary (2009), we re-released this seminal album in a special new way.
Originally released in 2001, this album stands as one of cornerstone achievements of a singer and songwriter not lacking in achievements.
Imagine the Dead Kennedys three decades on. Fiery cosmic psychobilly and retro R&B/garage tones. Sacrebleu!
Boy in a Well is complex; it’s a manically conceived, historically situated, emotionally underscored, plot-driven fictive universe. It’s demented, unpredictable, taboo, ambitious, and yet distinctively cohesive.
Birmingham/Nashville group’s second full-length has one foot firmly planted in reality as the other tip-toes in and out of mental complexities, self-perception and altered-state illusions. The results are revealing, exhilarating and profound.
Rowdy punk rock insolence to the right, a bottle in a bag; organic three-chords-and-the-truth frankness to the left—one eye in the rearview mirror and one eye on the rough road ahead. Sidelong is a record that will make you sit up and take notice. This is a new voice for a new country.
Never a genre loyalist, 'ADIOS' finds Branan (much like his musically restless heroes Elvis Costello and Tom Waits) coloring outside the lines in sometimes jarring shades of fuzz and twang. You can trust Branan to take you somewhere unexpected.
At its core, Heart-Shaped Mountain is an album about love and growth. At a time when divisiveness fills the headlines, Ha Ha Tonka is fighting the good fight and building narrative tributes to friends and loved ones, memories past, and prospects of the future.
The Bad Testament lands somewhere west of the Old Testament and south of an AA handbook. It’s a record of hard-grinding lost love, blues and deep, dark Americana.
