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.

DEAD FINGERS-Big Black Dog

I can’t tell if this record is genuine, amateurish, cliche, brilliant, or what. Half the songs sound like someone making fun of “down home” music, but the other half feel like this is a group of super-talented people having…Fun. Imagine, music that’s fun!

I guess I don’t have to decide which adjective applies. They all do.

This one has grown on me with each listen.

There’s a free sampler on Noisetrade.
