FREE MUSIC ALERT: SOUTHERN INDEPENDENT: VOL. 3

Give Me My XXX is a grassroots movement intended to give “outer-edge” artists a common umbrella to call home as well as a place for fans of a band to try and find other “like sounded” bands. They’ve been releasing some compilations under the “Southern Independent” moniker and offering them up for free download over on givememyxxx.com. Last week, they released Vol. 3 which features a track from the upcoming Scott H. Biram album, Bad Ingredients, as well as a track from a band we champion the shit out of around here, Have Gun Will Travel. If that wasn’t reason enough to grab the compilation, it also features an unreleased track from Waylon Jennings in which The Old 97’s acted as his back up band. Rhett Miller describes:

The Old 97’s were touring behind our second album, Wreck Your Life, in 1995 when we wound up playing a radio convention where who should appear in the front row of our showcase, but the great Waylon Jennings. He introduced himself after the set and was such a cool down-to-earth dude. He had an idea that we would be a good backing band for him on the record he was hoping to make next. Needless to say, we were into the idea.

“The Other Shoe” and a few other tracks were recorded a few weeks later but never saw a release cause Waylon’s health began to deteriorate shortly after.

Anyhow, if you’re into the idea of checking out some new music along with some familiar artists with no fiscal risk check out the Southern Independent Vol. 3 Compilation available for free download here.

SLOW ROLLIN' LOWS – ERIE STREET


A bunch of relative youngsters compared to the greats from which they take their name the Slow Rollin’ Lows show no immaturity on their sophomore release Erie Street. Their name is from a song straight out of the fountainhead years of Red Dirt Music, penned by Billy Joe Shaver and belted out by Waylon Jennings on Honky Tonk Heroes and they do right by greats they invoke by choosing the name. Formed in the sweltering summer of 2006 when Calvin “Pug” Johnson got together with drummer Jeremy Porter and Jordan Dean on bass. While only a three piece band these boys hit hard and don’t apologize. I have heard tell that the sophomore album is one of the hardest for a band since you have to combine your live shows with whatever first album you released and still manage to please your fans and while I can’t say I have seen SRL play live, something I plan to remedy, this album doesn’t feel like a second release. The tunes are polished, the lyrics flow, and the band is tight. Top that off with clean production and you have one of the best albums to come out of the scene this year.

SRL pulls off the outlaw sound without it feeling ripped off. In fact I think you drop the boys from Fannett, Texas right into the heydays of the outlaw country scene and no-one would think twice about them being there. With nods to Jackson Taylor in the lyrics (Hippies, Drunks and Rednecks), obvious hat tips to some of the greats in their musical stylings (Green Eyed Girl) and songs that inspire the sort of drinking that leads to organ failure (Sad Country Song) this is, hands down, an album that’s going on my top ten for the year. Some college bands I have heard don’t have the maturity to pull off a career in music. They get together and put out an album or two, if that, and then disappear as the members graduate and get real jobs. SRL are all audio engineering majors at Lamar State College but I think their music will take them farther than their degrees. They avoid the usual college country party sound and instead opt for songs that display an understanding of life’s ups and downs. I could write a blurb, at the very least, about every song on this release and that’s the best thing about it. There’s not one track that is worth skipping. Hell it’s hard to pick just three for this review but luckily for you the album is easy to acquire over at their website. I want to go on a lot more about this album but that could be due to a lack of sleep or a lack of whiskey and me wanting to kill time until I can one or the other so I’ll wrap it up and let you decide for yourself about Slow Rollin’ Lows.

THE TAKERS – TAKER EASY

Anyone who pays any attention to music in Florida has heard about The Takers at some point in the past year, and since Suburban Home picked them up the hype machine has been doing nothing but gaining momentum. By the time Virgil reached out to me with a copy of their debut album, Taker Easy, I was already wondering if they would be able to match the advance billing. Now, after spending some 2 months with the cd and managing to catch them live at the Citrus Circuit Tour, I can readily proclaim that yes, they are worthy of the hype.  Now hopefully with the cd finally coming out the rest of the country will get behind this little band from Gainesville.

The Takers are a ragtag collection of bike mechanics, cooks, restaurant managers, cashiers and recycled ink salesmen out of Tim Tebow-land (Gainesville). They came together as a band almost by accident when Devon Vlasin (singer) found himself in need of a backing band to open for an upcoming Willie Heath Neal show. A few phone calls and free beer bribes netted a temporary band that decided to keep at it after the show. After some member revisions and additions, the band finally settled in with Devon Vlasin bring joined by Chad Smith and Ronnie Holmes on electric guitars, Jerome Goodman on bass, Mike Collins on pedal steel and Jon Reinertsen playing drums.

Having caught his ear, Coody from Suburban Home’s Ninja Gun started talking them up to Virgil Dickerson who took more than a passing interest (psst: Virgil, check out Truckstop Coffee from Lake Worth). After some phone calls, the label and the band agreed that Suburban Home would put out the “Curse of A Drunk” single and that they should all meet during Virgil’s trip to 08’s Fest to discuss a future relationship. The rest, as they say, is history, and we’re now blessed with Taker Easy.

Taker Easy is, at the risk of sounding trite, exactly what I think of when I think about “Florida Country”, which is to say they’re as much rock and roll as they are shit kickers and twang. Suburban is selling the album as their “outlaw country” band, a modern version of Waylon Jennings, if you will. I’d say they have a little more rock and roll in them than that description suggests, but otherwise I have no qualms with it. I could go into long, descriptive, RIYL tangents, but why should I? Suburban Home has been gracious enough to allow us to stream the entire album here on ninebullets, so why not just check it out for yourself.  Personally I think, like me, that you’ll find Taker Easy to not only be Essential Listening, but also that it’ll probably end up being a Top 10 of the year. And as a Floridian, I am proud that these fellas are from my state.

WAYLON JENNINGS – WAYLON FOREVER

Note: I was planning on posting this last Friday to close out the week of classic country but I got sidetracked.

What better way to close out a week of new bands making classic country than with one of the old guard making a new album? A new Waylon Jenning’s album, Waylon Forever, was released last week. Yes, I know, Waylon’s been dead for a few years, but it ain’t like that’s stopped Tupac.

Waylon Forever was pooled from some old recordings and features some covers, some remakes and one new Waylon track. The standout track for me is “Outlaw Sh*t”, which is actually a retooled, slightly reworded and slowed down version of his classic, “Don’t You Think This Outlaw Bit’s Done Got Outta Hand”. Some are calling it Waylon’s “Hurt” and only time will tell, I suppose. I like it, but to me it just doesn’t possess the power that Cash’s cover of “Hurt” does, but that’s just me…it’s an awesome song no matter what. The single new Waylon song is called “I Found The Body” and I really love this song. The chorus on it really has a Waylon-meets-Everlast (first album style) feel to it. Really nice.

Most posthumous albums have a real disjointed and incomplete feel to them, but Waylon Forever does not suffer that fate. It feels as though Waylon was standing over the mixing boards for the entire process. This isn’t an album just for the Jennings completionist, everyone should give it a listen…I mean, who hasn’t wondered what a Waylon cover of Cream’s “White Room” would have sounded like? Wonder no more, it’s here and it’s awesome.
