THE NINEBULLETS.NET ALBUM OF THE YEAR IS:

American Aquarium – Burn.Flicker.Die. We’ll get around to posting our individual best of lists in the coming week or so but last week we all conversed over email and it quickly became evident that American Aquarium’s brand new album, Burn.Flicker.Die, was gonna win the vote for album of the year and it’s largely agreed that […]

PLAYLIST: NINEBULLETS RADIO 12.27.2012

This week’s show was basically just some of my favorite songs from the year that was 2012. So, naturally, the show turned out awesome. I also ran through my Top 10 albums of the year. So, if all that sounds like a good way to spend and hour; put your ears on the archived stream of […]

PLAYLIST: NINEBULLETS RADIO 12.20.2012

The obvious way to go with last night’s show was to make an “end of the world” theme show but I utterly despise theme shows. That said, I did figure that if Thursday night was one of the last days of Earth the last thing I’d wanna do it spend an hour of it moping […]

ROBERT CHILDS’ GUITAR: BJ BARHAM OF AMERICAN AQUARIUM

My dad built a guitar. Shortly after finishing it he got really sick and on December 02, 2012, he died. You can read the whole story here. Now, I try and get people to play the guitar. Back in November BJ Barham of American Aquarium was kind enough to sit down play a song on my […]

THE GASLIGHT ANTHEM — HANDWRITTEN

THE GASLIGHT ANTHEM — HANDWRITTEN

The latest album by The Gaslight Anthem is a return to the glory of Sink or Swim and The ’59 Sound, which is a relief. American Slang, the band’s 2010 release, was a good album, but it just didn’t capture the energy and passion that Brian Fallon & Co. exude so well on their most […]

ROGER HOOVER & THE HURT – LAY MY RITUALS DOWN

ROGER HOOVER & THE HURT – LAY MY RITUALS DOWN

I first heard Roger Hoover and The Whiskeyhounds way back in 2007 when a chance crossing with their album Panic Blues left me completely hooked. At the time I said they were writing songs that “would have fit right into the Capricorn Records catalog perfectly,” while comparing Roger’s vocal stylings to Marshall Tucker’s David Gray. […]

JASON ISBELL & THE 400 UNIT – LIVE FROM ALABAMA

JASON ISBELL & THE 400 UNIT – LIVE FROM ALABAMA

As the title states, Jason Isbell’s new record is a live one.  There are no new songs and only one new cover but it stands as a benchmark achievement and is without a doubt Essential Listening. For those of us that were listening to DBT when Jason arrived in the band his writing was a […]

JASON MOLINA – AUTUMN BIRD SONGS

Jason Molina has been off the grid since 2009, going through rehab and getting his life back on track. He has communicated with his fans through friends a couple of times, and in May we got this message (excerpt): “For the time being I am doing well, still in recovery and still in treatment until […]
