Unlike Captain’s Dead if you’d have told me 4 years ago when Kent Goolsby played my birthday party with his, now defunct, band The Only Sons I would have been surprised. That said, since disbanding with The Only Sons I have watched Kent’s music change and mature into something that is equal parts in the moment and timeless in sound.
His new album, No Substitute For Handsome, was recorded in his home here in Nashville and then turned over to Glossary front man, Joey Kneisner for his mixing and mastering magic.
No Substitute For Handsome is tentatively scheduled for July 7 but if you preorder it here the word on the street is that you’ll get a download code before that date. Today, however, Kent was kind enough to give ol’ Ninebullets a song to debut to you guys so check it out:
The crew over at Twang N Bang is always great, and when they asked us to host an exclusive stream of the new American Dirt album I just couldn’t say “No”. It’s currently in pre-order so your first chance to hear the whole is right here. I will be reviewing the album closer to the release date so I won’t go in to too much detail here but I can say that it’s one of my favorite releases of 2015. I really like the sound these guys have the lyrics that come from their trio of songwriters never fails to impress. So without further ado, here is the Sunken Gardens.
By the by, this is not quite a full stream, there are live and demo tracks that you can’t hear here so you really have no excuse not to go pre-order this. You’ve heard, it’s good, and there’s more stuff to hear. What else could you ask for?
