LBIII & The Glory Fires – “Sweet Disorder” and On Covers

LBIII & The Glory Fires – “Sweet Disorder” and On Covers

Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires have released their latest 7″ this past week. The Alabama rock outfit on the SubPop label, purportedly ‘Too Loud For Texas‘ and known for their energy-filled performances, are coming from the release of 2014’s Dereconstructed which was not only Essential Listening, but my choice for Album of the Year. […]

Have Gun, Will Travel – Science From An Easy Chair – 2015

Have Gun, Will Travel – Science From An Easy Chair – 2015

Have Gun, Will Travel is releasing their 5th album this month and in many ways it marks a new direction for the band. The album tells the story Ernest Shackleton’s ill fated Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition as detailed in the book Endurance. Trust me, when I hear the term “concept album” I cringe too. Usually they […]

William Elliott Whitmore – Radium Death – 2015

William Elliott Whitmore – Radium Death – 2015

It’s been a while since any song made me pine for the days of driving around with my best friend, Angie, in her Mustang and the opening track of William Elliott Whitmore’s Radium Death has done just that. “Healing To Do” manages to dredge up the innocence of why that we did what we did, […]

Darrell Scott – 10 Songs Of Ben Bullington – 2015

Every now and then an album you had little to know expectations about explodes out of your speakers and completly blows your mind. Such was the case with Darrell Scott’s latest album, 10 Songs of Ben Bullington and I. The first song title on the album to catch my attention was “Country Music, I’m Talking […]

Top 5: Train Songs

It’s been a while since we had a top list and I figured train songs would be a great topic. So here are my Top 5 train songs: The Monkees – Last Train To Clarksville: This one has a lot of sentimental value for me and while it might not be one of the best […]

Lonely Like Thursday – A TBT MixTape

Lonely Like Thursday – A TBT MixTape

As I go through my old archives I keep finding mixes that I really like and think need to see the light of day again. This one seemed perfect for a Thursday where I am buried at work. I can’t remember how in the hell I actually put these tracks together, in this order, and […]

Lexington Field – Greenwood – 2015

Lexington Field – Greenwood – 2015

Lexington Field’s Greenwood is one of those albums that’s innately hard to describe because it encompasses so much. If you go search the sites that tend to review their music you might be led to believe that they’re a celt-punk outfit, which I suppose might be descriptive to some degree if you take their back […]

Eilen Jewell – Sundown Over Ghost Town – 2015

It’s hard to believe it’s been 4 years since Eilen’s last studio album, Queen Of The Minor Key, but when you hear about all the changes in her personal life you totally understand why. Since Queen of The Minor Key was released Eilen packed up her van and moved back to her hometown of Boise […]
