CHASE FIFTY SIX – ALLATOONA RISING


Sometimes ninebullets can be work, albeit enjoyable work, but work nonetheless. Then there are times where it’s fun, where you get to write about a band you really think folks will like once they’ve had a chance to hear them. The first time I wrote about The Fox Hunt it was like that, same as the first time I wrote about Strawfoot, and I’m getting that same feeling as I sit here getting ready to tell y’all about this little unsigned band from a town in Georgia you’ve never heard of (hell, I got all sorts of family in Georgia and I’ve never heard of it) that goes by the name of Chase Fifty Six.

Chase Fifty Six, like certain other notable Georgia-based bands, has a three axe attack, featuring Kenny Mac, Brent Griggs and Chris Stalcup (who is also the singer). The outfit is rounded out by Jared Cobb on drums and Jim Vollrath on bass. Their new album, Allatoona Rising, was recorded in a shack in the Georgia woods during the summer of 2009. The album features 11 tracks of something they’re calling “Georgia Rock.” Now, honestly, I’ve never heard of the Georgia Rock until now and I’m not sure Georgia has a defined enough sound to get their own genre yet, but you know, whatever. When I told my wife about the album I explained it as such, “It’s like early Drive-By Truckers. Think pre-Southern Rock Opera minus those bad attempts at being funny that the Truckers experienced from time to time. The singer sounds sort of reminiscent of Cooley, but there’s no “Love Like This” on the album. I hope no one feels like it’s a slam to say that the songwriting here isn’t on par with Cooley’s. I mean, IMO, Cooley is one of the best songwriters I’ve had the pleasure to grow up with, watch play and witness grow. So, songwriting comparisons aside, I’d like to say that Allatoona Rising is a fantastic effort from a band worth paying attention to.

Chase Fifty Six – Mary Jane
Chase Fifty Six – Goodbye Princess
Chase Fifty Six – Devil’s Bed

AUTOPSY IV'S FAVORITE 20 ALBUMS OF 2009 (today):

Well, I guess it’s my turn. Kasey and RSV have already dropped their faves of the year (here and here) on y’all, so there’s just no avoiding it for me now. This year was particularly difficult due to the sheer amount of great music that came out, and had I made this list tomorrow it would certainly change. That said, you can edit forever but eventually you have to settle on something and call it your list. So, with out further ado I am gonna steal RSV’s formatting and get this show on the road:

20. Eilen Jewell – Sea of Tears
19. Those Darlins – Those Darlins
18. Strawfoot – How We Prospered
17. Justin Townes Earl – Midnight at The Movies
16. Malcolm Holcombe – For The Mission Baby
15. Jon Snodgrass – Visitor’s Band
14. Ben Nichols – The Last Pale Light In The West
13. Cam Penner – Trouble and Mercy
12. The Fox Hunt – America’s Working So We Don’t Have To
11. William Elliott Whitmore – Animals In The Dark

Top 10 (with mp3s) are under the cut…

YOU CAUGHT ME RED-BLOODED

It may just be my rebellious nature or it may have been seeing AIV post about the Fox Hunt EP and to be honest I don’t even know if our gracious host is gonna let this one slip through since by his own admission we don’t usually post about EPs and this most definitely a post about one of those. (That may be the longest sentence I wrote all week long) So instead of saying this is a post about the Cory Branan/Jon Snodgrass split E/P on Suburban Home I am going to pretend this a very belated review of the Joey Cape/Jon Snodgrass/Cory Branan/Chad Rex show I attended three months ago.

It was a hot July night in Texas at a venue that is not know for having the best A/C when I caught up with Cory Branan and Jon Snodgrass. I had planned to do an interview with Cory that night but my new recording software had a “feature” of which I was unaware and I ended up with less than two minutes of the interview actually recorded. Cory was kind enough to introduce me to Jon after a bit, he wasn’t rude he just assumed we knew each other already, and we hung out for a while before the show. Looking back I can see why Cory thought Jon and I had met since we fell into conversation easily. We talked about DTR and life for a bit before the show and Jon promised to re-learn Br00tal and play it during his and Cory’s set.

Aside from interviewing Cory this was the first show I had planned to shoot. So while Cory and Jon warmed up I did as well, ending up with some great candid shots of both Cory and Jon. Cory and Jon played what Jon refers to as “buddy rock” and the their set was absolutely amazing. Having seen Cory countless times and not ever having seen Jon I didn’t know what to expect. What the crowd got was an amazing set with Cory playing some of the crowd favorites and some newer material and Jon belting out his songs with fervor. He kept his promise and let fly with Br00tal while I was trying to get the barkeep’s attention for more whiskey. I think his acoustic version is now my favorite version of the song. With Cory and Jon punctuating each others’ songs and the banter between the two and the crowd this was quickly becoming one of the best shows I had seen all year. After their set we popped outside for nicotine and cooler air and I got to meet Chad Rex and talk with him a bit.

I hate to admit I missed most Joey Cape‘s set and didn’t get a chance to meet him as I got caught up hanging out and talking with folks. But I did get to see him, Chad, and Jon knock out a few songs, enough to make me regret hanging outside as long as I had. Multiple trips to the merch table scored me some posters, t-shirts, and the Cory/Jon split EP. It was an amazing evening and on top of all the music I found out that I don’t suck at shooting shows.

(You can see the whole gallery here.) and meeting Chad Rex and Jon Snodgrass was an experience that I won’t soon forget.

As we pulled away from the venue I unwrapped the cassette I had acquired, taking care not to loseWeight Exercise the digital download code, and popped into the deck of my old Ford F-150. Jon opens the tape with Alone and Distanced and it’s as good as ever. As an aside there is something about listening to a tape in a world where we are used to being able to switch to the next track with a simple push of a button that’s a bit refreshing. Being forced, in a way, to listen to the tracks in the order the artists intended is a different experience that I think we have lost some of in the age of digital music. Being as that we didn’t go that far to grab grub my listening experience was punctuated by the best late-night post-show food I know: the Sausage Scrambler at House of Pies here in Houston. As I pulled into the parking lot Wild One was wrapping up.

. We spent just a little too long at our table as is our custom after a show and then I finally got back out the truck, cranked her and was greeted with a studio version of Cory’s Walk Around. Now while I think Cory is better live than studio this version is as good as any of the live recordings floating around and might even be better. The backing vocals do just a little something that makes it amazing. Born Apart had my foot a little too far down on the accelerator and, the tape being an EP, I wanted more after Yeah, So What was over. So what’s a boy to do? Well you let the tape reverse and listen to it again.

Now there’s lots of cool album art out there these days but the album art for this tape is worth owning. It’s totally cheesy and looks like something I might have picked up in the bargain bin at Sound Warehouse in 1989 with a blue sticker with red bubble letters announcing “VALUE PRICE”. It’s also available as vinyl from Suburban Home/Vinyl Collective and I plan to order that version on payday. But they really need to make a poster out of the album cover, a big huge poster, maybe one of those heavy metal/Pink Floyd style cloth wall hangings.

This is an amazing EP from start to finish and it has a couple of songs you won’t get to hear before Cory’s new album comes out unless you make it out to see him live. But don’t take my word for it check out the stream from Suburban Home…

And so there you have it. My review of an EP masquerading as a review of a show. 😉 Now go buy the thing from Suburban Home…

THE FOX HUNT – THE FOX HUNT 7" CDEP

Autopsy IV checking in here. Having managed to not only survive Denver but to come out of it inspired I’m getting back into the swing of things here in ninebullets.net land. Everything here happens according to a schedule that is generally laid out in the beginning of the week but sometimes something comes along that forces me to buck the schedule and type on the fly.

Today is one such case.

This morning I received and email from The Fox Hunt informing me that their self-titled EP had been released. Normally, I don’t post about EPs at all preferring instead to focus on full-length albums but when new Fox Hunt material becomes available, I don’t give two shits about it’s length, I’m telling y’all about it.

The Fox Hunt EP is the first new original material to come from The Fox Hunt boys since their debut album (and ninebullets.net 2007 Album of The Year winner), Nowhere Bound. When I originally reviewed Nowhere Bound I described The Fox Hunts sound as such, “Somewhere on the highway between Drag the River and Lucero, there is an exit with a dive bar. The Fox Hunt, out of Martinsburg, West Virginia, is that bar’s house band.” The new material doesn’t stray far from this sound instead focusing on producing 4 more simple, genuine songs with terrific melody and those smooth harmonies Fox Hunt fans have come to know and love.

Now, I know y’all are dying to buy the album so head on over to We Are Big House and pick it up. Both the CD and vinyl come in a 7” package and the vinyl comes with a card so you can download the mp3’s.

The track listing is:

1. Drinking Game
2. Darlin’ I Can’t Stay
3. Greenbrier River
4. Bigger Man

NINEBULLETS.NET AUGUST PODCAST:

Here we are. Another month, another podcast. Can you believe it’s been 6 months? Traffic on these is improving a little and that’s raised my spirits about doing them…I know I’m supposed to be all about doing them regardless of the amount of people who listen….and I will be, just as soon as the podcast’s monthly traffic gets in the same neighborhood as ninebullets.net’s daily traffic. That said, let’s talk about this month’s podcast.

The moment I sat down and started mapping out what songs I wanted to play this month I started getting excited. It quickly became obvious that this month’s song selection was gonna be the bomb. We got unreleased tracks from The Fox Hunt, Left Lane Cruiser, Carolyn Mark, Malcolm Holcombe, Pete Bernhard (Devil Makes Three) and Chuck Ragan, as well as newborn songs from Chad Price (Drag The River), Mat d. and the Profane Saints, The Builders and The Butchers, The Takers and Lonesome Wyatt (Those Poor Bastards) w/Rachel Brooke.

In the middle of the show I decided to do a set featuring bands who will be performing at Suburban Home‘s 14 Anniversary Weekend Party, which I’ll be attending in 15 days. Hopefully I’ll come back from it with some good stories, good pictures and a few interviews.

And that does it. I’m really happy with this month’s podcast and I think y’all will like it. Do me a favor, though. If you listen and you enjoy the show, please tell other people about it.

Thanks, everyone. ~Autopsy IV (twitter: @autopsy4)

NINEBULLETS.NET JULY PODCAST:

Holy. Crap. Talk about getting one in right under the wire. No matter. We’re here. tt’s still July and the podcast is live, so let’s talk about it.

This month’s podcast is divided into two halves. The first half is all about new music. In that section we have a song from the upcoming Lucero cd, 1372 Overton Park, as well as a phenomenal cover of Lucero’s “Better Than This” by ninebullets.net faves, The Fox Hunt. Incidentally, the new Lucero album is currently up for preorder. If you do preorder it, not only will you get the physical cd a few weeks prior to the “official” release date, you’ll also immediately get to download a six song preview of the album (from whence the song on this podcast came). While we’re on the preorder tip, there is a also song on the podcast from the new Chris Knight album, Trailer Tapes II. Like the new Lucero, Chris’ album is up for preorder, but if you preorder it now you’ll get to download a digital copy of the whole album immediately.

The second half of the podcast features bands from this year’s Deep Blues Festival, which I plan on posting a complete recap of next week. I featured American Relay in this segment who, unfortunately, played their last show ever at the Festival. I believe they have a new album coming out, but there will be no touring to support it. Also featured is Davina and The Vagabonds. I had high hopes for this band and they lived up to every one. Matter of fact, during their set I tweeted the following, “Davina and the Vagabonds. Music you should fuck to“. I also decided to include Woodsbossman, Tom VandenAvond. He looks like he could be Scott H. Biram’s little brother and he writes some fine, fine music.

I closed this month’s Podcast with a track from Gainesville’s The Takers. Their new album has finally been released and you can get it at all your favorite digital outlets, plus you can read about the album here.

And that does it. Another month comes to pass. I am pretty happy with this month’s podcast and I think y’all will like it. Do me a favor, though. If you listen and you enjoy the show, please tell other people about it. The website’s stats have been increasing this month, but the podcast’s stats have been in decline. I am gonna try to do more advertising of the show this month, but nothing beats word of mouth.

Thanks, everyone. ~Autopsy IV (twitter: @autopsy4)

LUCERO MESSAGE BOARD "SPRING" COMPILATION

It’s been a while since we posted a Lucero Message Board compilation. Really, I’m not too sure what’s going on. The curator of the comp hasn’t been coming around too much, but we have been graced with a “Spring” compilation. It’s shorter than most, but what it lacks from a numbers standpoint it more than makes up for from a quality point.

Also, since it was such a hit in my April podcast, I put the Gillian Welch/Old Crow Medicine Show version of The Band’s song “The Weight”. I hope y’all enjoy this comp, I know I am. As always, you can head over to the Lucero message board for some dialogue on why each song was submitted and while you’re there you can contribute to next month’s. The compilation can be downloaded here.
