I can’t quite put my finger on it, but there’s something that truly draws my ears to Dovetail’s debut album, Mount Karma. With such a classic 60′s/70′s rock and roll style, brothers Philip and Daniel Creamer create an equally soaring and anthemic sound.
Joined by the rest of the band, the 14 track album is just as much dynamic as it is diverse. A fabulous listen from start to finish, listen in its entirety below and be sure to grab your copy here.
Ha Ha Tonka’s upcoming album, Lessons, was just released this past Tuesday. It’s pretty incredible to say the least. The production has truly stepped up in their 4th studio album. I am really digging this direction in sound – check out their first track, “Dead To The World,” below, and be sure to listen to the entire stream over at WNYC Radio.
Escondido’sis so natural in the way the duo’s voices thread in and out of each other. I love their raw lyrical content. Their debut EP starts with, “Cold October,” a tragic love song that’s so collected and realistic about a fraying relationship. It actually makes me think of a twangy version of Cults. What’s even more impressive is that the entire self-titled release was recorded in one day.
These Melbourne musicians could be Australia’s answer to the Black Lips. They’re gritty and infectious with their classic rock ‘n’ roll hooks. Dynamic energy pouring out of every single instrument, The Delta Riggs aim to never stray far from their roots.
Their latest EP, Talupo Mountain Music Vol. II, is “straight up Rock & Roll to make you jump ‘n’ shout & feel alright.” I especially dig the fact that these guys track everything live. Listen to the bluesy, rootsy, and raw release below.
I dig laid back blue-collar rock just has hard as I love ambient, electronic music. My taste is all over the place but my appreciation runs deep.
The Strange Boys dig up that unrefined sound I enjoy in similar rootsy-rock bands. I love the crooning and easy strumming going on in their track, “Doueh,”off their third album, Live Music.These Texans are just too fun to watch and listen to.
