Savage Kings returns to the Savages' heyday of their debut & Dig Yourself sound of an all-nite blowout that you will pay severely for the next morning....
Lydia Loveless takes the pop classic "I Would Die 4 U" for a spin while Cory Branan slows it down with his take on the 1986 weirdo swan song "Under the Cherry Moon."
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.
Side A is "Mile High" a non album track of Lydia's own concoction.
Side B is a Ke$ha song that LL loves. We didn't even recognize it at first – just figured it was another killer Lydia cut.
Jerry David DeCicca is the frontman of beloved Columbus, Ohio folk-rock band The Black Swans. This is his debut solo album which features guest appearances by Will Oldham (Bonnie 'Prince' Billy), Kelley Deal (The Breeders), Spooner Oldham, and more.
A trip thru neon-lit alleys, full of pulp fiction juvey rock, sci-fi theme songs and greasy denim hipster jive. Effortlessly versatile and raucously dismissive of genre constraints, exciting and darkly romantic.
Plots a clear-eyed, sharp-elbowed course through such far-flung subjects as alternative hierarchies and astronomy, perpetual war for perpetual profit, the culture of detachment, middle age, fatherhood, fame, and the fleetingness of love.
Recorded with the co-owner of Fat Possum/Big Legal Mess records, Bruce Watson, at Dial Back Studios in Water Valley Mississippi in the summer of 2013. It's the first time BBJ ever recorded real studio tracks outside his home of Nashville TN.
The band toys with the theme of living beyond a normal lifetime- the concept of reliving and rewriting our lives, and the lessons we can all learn along the way, and marks a departure from their more stripped down style to one filled with lush instrumentation.
Howl is soul music by children of the post-punk era. It’s the sound of a band that cut its teeth listening to Purple Rain and In On the Killtaker. The dark side of love and longing is explored by frontman JC Brooks’s starkly personal lyrics and the Uptown Sound’s willingness to bare all their influences and let the grooves fall where they may.
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.
Songs for the lively, carefree honky tonk or just the open road that leads there---Wayne's a modern-day traditionalist with his signature mélange of roadhouse blues, hepcat boogie, rockabilly, and juke joint swing.
