Label: Bloodshot Records
USA (Cadillac, MI.)

18f7930fad60fbdb8a8200d3f35d8a3c

This new record from Luke Winslow-King is more than several steps up from his previous fine record. That one, The Coming Tide, had great songs and good playing but, compared to this one, he and the band sounded like they were skating over the top of the music.Here, Winslow-King and his band seriously dig in and commit themselves to harder playing and a wider variety of what is called Americana music. This expanded palate includes blues, jazz, dirges, stomps, folk and even a taste of mariachi.

Line up:

Luke Winslow-King: guitar, vocals,
Esther Rose: vocals
Cassidy Holden; bass,
Benji Bohannon: drums,
Ben Polcer: keyboards, trumpet.

Genre: Blues, Blues Country, Blues Rock, Americana
Label: Sid’s Records

The Roadhouse Dogs emerged in the middle 2000’s playing a style of music all but lost to the mainstream contemporary British music scene. Guitar driven blues and country inspired, just like the Rolling Stones before them, by the greats of American roots music. Here are echoes of everyone from Robert Johnson, through Woody Guthrie to Gram Parsons, Bruce Springsteen and beyond. If that sounds like too big a boast, then take a listen…. This is a set of original, thoughtful songs played with a London swagger while paying respectful homage to the country and the artists that initiated rock and roll. »29 Palms to Pimlico » brings Americana from one small town in California to another in the heart of London UK.

Mills has taken her soulful blues sounds worldwide and has shared the stage and/or studio with artists such as Robert Plant, Jeff Beck, Andy Fairweather Low, Junior Wells and Dr. John.The singer-songwriter has now taken on a new project that has roots in the past. Recently, Mills decided to “reclaim” her debut album “I’m Changing,” which she sees as an unfinished album. Mills cites a variety of reasons for going back to her debut. She received much encouragement from constant requests for copies of the out-of-print album. A group of friendly investors also felt the need for Mills to revisit “I’m Changing.” Ultimately, undeniable fate became the biggest factor in this project.

Uncle Ben’s Remedy is an Outlaw Country band from Western New York. They play country versions of rock songs, rock versions of country songs, and hip hop versions of nothing. These shifty outlaws have played in gutterrock bands around the area for years. The switch to this drunken hillbilly style was a natural switch, having grown up playing these songs around campfires. Uncle Ben’s Remedy brings that “campfire” feel to every show. So come join them, stomp your feet, sing along, and at some point realize you’ve stayed way too late.

Ben Lethal Westlund–vocals, guitar, kazoo
Harmony Griffin–strings
Shawn Huestis–melodica

If you aren’t familiar with Jeff, he is a native of Lamesa, Texas, near Lubbock where he grew up on a diet of edgy country, blues and rock ‘n’ roll. He eventually moved in the 80’s to Austin and played a variety of genres in a variety of bands. Frustrated with the « music business » Jeff pursued a « real job » with the hope of returning to music. He was actually a successful trial lawyer in Texas for 10 years before deciding to return to music in 2000. (We lose one lawyer and gain back a great musician all at once- that’s a good day!!) He moved to Durango, Colorado to gain musical inspiration. This must have worked as Jeff delivers a killer live performance that you do not want to miss.

Jeff is still new to Texas but soon to be a driving force in the Americana scene. His music is upbeat and bluesy, but he can write a pretty ballad too. No matter what you call it, one thing for sure is that Jeff has something to say.If you rolled up Johnny Cash, Los Lonely Boys, Lyle Lovett, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Stevie Ray Vaughn into one body, this is probably what it would sound like.

Cam Penner – To Build a Fire

Original Release Date: April 1, 2013
Genre: Folk, Rock, Blues, Americana
Label: Independent
Canada

Cam Penner’s fifth album is an extraordinary piece of work. Edgy, raw and thoroughly original, this is alt-folk with numerous unexpected twists and turns.The style book is continually ripped up as the album progresses. There’s some Woody Guthrie-style material some contemporary folk and even a touch of banjo-driven rap on Memphis. One things for sure – no two songs could be accused of being similar!

Holly Golightly And The Brokeoffs – Sunday Run Me Over

 

Original Release Date: 16/10/2012
Genre: Alt-Country, Blues Rock, Americana
Label: 12TH STREET RECORDS

Sunday Run Me Over is Holly’s fifth album with the Brokeoffs, actually a duo consisting of the London-born, Georgia-based singer/guitarist and Texas-bred multi-instrumentalist and longtime collaborator Lawyer Dave, who contributes guitar, drums and backing vocals. But it’s one of nearly 30 albums on which the pioneering D.I.Y. iconoclast is featured, either as a solo artist or band member, and that figure that doesn’t include her various singles, guest appearances and collaborations with the likes of the White Stripes, Mudhoney, the Greenhornes and Rocket from the Crypt. Throughout a career that’s spanned more than 20 years, she’s maintained a fierce fidelity to the unpretentious attitude and stripped-down sonic sensibility that’s made her a seminal influence upon multiple generations of garage, punk and lo-fi artists.
