Album of the Week: King Ropes – Gravity and Friction

Posted by Greg on Sep 17, 2019 in Music

5758

Long live Bozeman, MT. The burgeoning college town and hipster hot-spot is home to a university whose alumni include a city that claims home to Carroll O’Connor, J.K. Simmons and Jeff Ament. Perennial frat-boy John Mayer makes his home in the nearby locale of Paradise Valley, and an alt-country outfit named King Ropes that just might be one of the most refreshing bands we’ve heard this year. Their latest album, Gravity and Friction, is one we cannot stop playing on repeat. For obvious reasons it bears the title of our Album of the Week. Read more…

Justin Townes Earle Announces Fall Tour Dates

Posted by Greg on Sep 13, 2019 in Music

Arguably our favorite Americana singer-songwriter of the last 10-12 years has to be Nashville’s own Justin Townes Earle. The continent-hopping troubadour is a wizard in the studio and just as engaging on stage. Those that have yet to see him will have a chance this fall. Earlier today, Earle announced fall tour dates in support of his superb new album, The Saint of Lost Causes. The fact that The Saint of Lost Causes is superb is really no surprise. Read more…

Song Premiere: Blake Brown – “Lift Me Up”

Posted by Greg on Sep 12, 2019 in Music

unnamed

We’ve probably said this numerous times, but our favorite thing about this blog is stumbling across music that comes from out of nowhere. The latest example of this is Blake Brown, a Denver-based singer-songwriter whose heartland rock is probably one of the best things we’ve heard this year. Teaming up with his band the American Dust Choir, Brown has released a new EP Turning Tides. Read more…

With AmericanaFest now in high gear, we thought we’d share the latest video from Binghamton, NY quartet Driftwood. Originally from the New York City and formed by childhood friends Dan Forsyth (guitar) and Joe Kollar (banjo/guitar), the band now makes their home in Vestal County, about 90 miles northwest of the hubbub of Manhattan.

Album of the Week (and probably the year): Kazyak – Odyssey

Posted by Greg on Sep 9, 2019 in Music

We’ve heard a lot of albums so far this year, but few, if any have taken our breath away quite like Odyssey by Minneapolis’ Kazyak. Cinematic, celestial and deeply impacting from start to finish, Odyssey is as its name suggests an epic adventure with a grandiose scale. Channeling the likes of Radiohead, My Morning Jacket and Explosions in the Sky, Odyssey reaches for the heavens from the very first note and ultimately succeeds in every sense of the word.
