CALEXICO-Edge of the Sun


Yeah, they’re a major label band now….But they still sound independent of the massive production machine that makes everyone sound alike. These are real people playing real instruments and singing with their own voices.

(Except they use Ben Bridwell’s on the single!)

I’m really enjoying this album. Especially Cumbia de Donde, below. Calexico always feel so rootsy and earnest.

Highly recommended.

THE FAR WEST-Any Day Now

I’m really enjoying The Far West’s album “Any Day Now.” It’s good, honest Americana. Here’s a couple cuts from it, along with a Pete Seger cover they generously offer via Soundcloud…

GRIZZLEE TRAIN-Come Back Around (EP)

It’s January 2015, and we’ve already got a real good release for the year. Grizzlee Train’s rootsy, rockin’ debut sounds immediately classic and contemporary. Intro track “Morning Bell” could be a Meters song, but then the second cut “Soldier for You” sounds like indie rock and roll. Great percussion (really great), great rhythm, and terrific songwriting–this is a very good EP and I can’t wait to hear more from them.

NORTH COUNTRY GENTLEMEN-Self Titled

A buddy turned me on to the 2014 self-titled album by North Country Gentlemen, and I’m enjoying it. It’s somewhere between country and Bruce Springsteen.
