British singer-songwriter Nick Mulvey has always been a favorite of this blog. His 2014 debut album First Mind went woefully ignored here in the States and two years removed from that album, he is back with his sophomore follow-up, due out later this year. Read more…

Zac Brown Band Misses the Mark……Again

Posted by Greg on May 19, 2017 in Music

On paper this was supposed to be the album that fixed everything. The one to quiet the naysayers, silence the critics and reengage those who were so taken aback by their genre-hopping most recent album. On paper, Welcome Home, Zac Brown Band’s sixth studio release should be a home-run. Studio maestro Dave Cobb was at the helm, the band returned to a more roots-based sound more like their debut The Foundation. Read more…

Thanks to the fine folks at Big Machine, “Drinkin’ Problem,” the latest single from Texas trio Midland made its way through the SITH inbox. Hot damn are we glad it did. Have ya’all heard this song? Quite frankly, it doesn’t get any better than this. Many have already predicted a bright future for this band and with a song this intoxicating, its easy to see why. “Drinkin’ Problem” is old-school, breezy and ridiculously catchy. Read more…

Ones to Watch: Nashville’s New Respects

Posted by Greg on Mar 17, 2017 in Music

It’s always a great thing to receive an unexpected surprise at the most opportune of times. While battling a pretty severe head cold last week, the debut EP Here Comes Trouble by Nashville quartet The New Respects found its way to the Step Inside This House headquarters. Knowing absolutely nothing about the band, curiosity was instantly piqued. Heck, their publicist even threw in a free t-shirt. We’re digging this. Read more…

Travis Linville Finds His Stride

Posted by Greg on Mar 7, 2017 in Music

There’s something utterly sublime and deeply potent about Travis Linville’s slow-burning new record Up Ahead. Though its extremely sedate in its pacing, its memorable numbers (of which there are many) linger long after the final seconds and announce Linville as a major play in the very crowded Americana scene. Having spent much of his career as a sideman (most notably for Hayes Carll), Linville’s fifth release is easily his best and so far one of this year’s best to date. Read more…

Son Volt’s latest is good but not Farrar’s best

Posted by Greg on Mar 7, 2017 in Music

Twenty years removed from Son Volt’s landmark debut album Trace, St. Louis singer-songwriter Jay Farrar is still at it. Though the band has changed hands multiple times since the 1997 album, he’s still hard at work trying to recreate that very same magic. Some critics have panned Farrar for writing the same album time and time again, and while that isn’t exactly incorrect, any time Farrar releases new music it is something pretty special.

Scott H. Biram Roars on New Disc

Posted by Greg on Feb 26, 2017 in Music

Anyone who has been following the career of Austin singer/songwriter Scott H. Biram knows he’s never been one to shy away from songs about faith. Additionally, he’s never been one for hired studio hands either. So it is no surprise, that his latest, The Bad Testament (Bloodshot Records), released this past Friday, features more songs about faith and very few, if any, studio hands. Read more…
