Man, I feel like I’ve been in a fog for a few weeks. Stress at work has had me all aflutter, but I think I’ve started to find my new normal. With that said, I can’t think of a better album to blow out the dust here on ninebullets than the Southern rock blast that is Dark And Bloody Ground from Fifth On The Floor. If you listen to ninebullets radio or the ninebullets podcast then you’re already a little familiar with these guys.
Fifth On The Floor is Aaron Graham, Jason Parsons, Matty Rodgers and Justin Wells out of Lexington, Kentucky. They hail from the Bluegrass state and these boys are bringing nothing but Southern rock and roll to the table. If I were gonna compare them to a band, I’d say these kids are the rock and roll cousin of Whitey Morgan and the 78’s. The album’s standout track is the polished and restrained ballad of despair “Distant Memory Lane” but it’s all the tattered, ragged and raw rock and roll songs about sour mash and breakups that make the album Essential Listening.
