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.
It's the sound of rickety wooden porches on humid summer days, the grimy streets of New Orleans beyond the French Quarter-- a charmingly disarming amalgam of early 20th century jazz, Delta blues, American folksong, and Southern gospel.
From the front man of The Supersuckers, a genre-scoffing dose of snarling country rock, full of pop hooks and wiseguy humor delivered with a brain, a heart, & a beer.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Third record in the Daytrotter Vinyl Series featuring two of Daytrotter's oldest friends, Dawes and Justin Townes Earle
The songs tap into grooves as disparate as Turkish maqsoum, Punjabi bhangra, Jamaican ska, Greek rebetiko, classic punk and old-school mambo.
Like the woman herself, Working Girl’s Guitar crackles with a loose, straightforward energy fit to be played everywhere from palaces to bars.
