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.
