GRAYSON CAPPS-The Lost Cause Minstrels

With all the experimental indie rock, hardcore and tons and tons of hip hop out there, sometimes it’s nice to hear an album that’s full of songs.  You know songs: Verse-chorus-verse?  Structure?  Harmony on the chorus or at the end of a line?  That’s what we got here with Grayson Capps.

A little East Coast blues, a little New Orleans horn-bop, lots of Americana in the guitar and vocal, and tons of authentic Southern poetry grace this Alabama singer/songwriter’s fifth album, coming June 7 on Royal Potato Family records.  Song for song, the album feels well-thought-out and stuffed good without filler.  It’s the kind of record I can see myself continuing to listen to years from now.

For fans of: Dr. John, Steve Earle, Waylon Jennings, and Bobby’s “country” Grateful Dead songs.

NEW ANIMAL-Up (EP)

A band is either brand new, desperate, or crazy when it offers all of its music for free.  And New Animal are probably all of the above.

This band from Georgia make ambient pop with lots of echo and moody moaning.  It’s just two guys, but it sounds as big as the room.

Good stuff, and all free.

Get Up for free at Bandcamp.  Get the rest of their catalog, too, here.

BREAKING NEWS!

They’ve released a photo of The White Queen in her panties!  Stop the presses!

Now, don’t get me wrong: I wouldn’t kick her outta bed or anything, but she ain’t no Emma Frost.  She doesn’t have the hips or boobs for the part.
