kent goolsby & the gold standard “outskirts of love” premiere

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, June 17th, 2015

kent1

if you would have told me 5/6 years ago that kent goolsby would be making the kind of music he is now, i, honestly wouldn’t have been that surprised. when i first met kent, he was fronting the now defunct, but awesome band, the only sons. that was then, this is now. kent and his gold standard have a new record coming out on july 7 entitled, no substitute for handsome. its definitely music from a bye-gone era – see everly brothers, roger miller and leon redbone, but sounds completely contemporary. if you’re a fan of above mentioned artists and contemporaries justin townes earle, the devil makes three, etc, you will find yourself right at home with what kent it is laying down. although, in all honesty, i think he does it better. no substitute… was recorded at his home in nashville and was mixed and mastered by mr joey kneiser of glossary fame. i have been looking for a record like this for quite a while, and its no surprise that mr goolsby and band of merry men have produced such a record. definitely gonna be one of my favorites of 2015.

like him/them on facebook and follow him on twitter

pre-order no substitute for handsome here

big rock candy mountain “sister sun”

Posted by gregor on Thursday, May 28th, 2015

unnamed (1)

the last time i “wrote” about new orleans’ big rock candy mountain, they were loud and louder. at least thats what i remember, but my old age is making my memory fuzzy. they have a new record out entitled brother moon, their first fist full length. yeah their still loud, but seem to taking cues from some more melodic garage rock bands. i definitely dig the road they’re traveling. hopefully hear more from them, more frequently, in the near future.

buy brother moon via their bandcamp page

destroyer “dream lover”

Posted by gregor on Thursday, May 21st, 2015

bejar

holy springsteen, dan bejar! i, admittedly, have not dug too much of bejar’s work since the first destroyer record, which is like one of the best bowie records bowie never released, and is still one of my favorites to this day. i love the thought of his work, but in reality we dont alway connect. its ok though, these things happen. this song, though, off his upcoming destroyer record poison season, which is due out on 8.28. this song makes me very excited about this record. you can read more about it via consequence of sound, here.

hop along “powerful man”

Posted by gregor on Tuesday, May 12th, 2015

hop

just happened to be on the facebooks the other day, and legendary producer producer/engineer/etc john agnello posted a link to story about hop along. the lead to the story was something about hop along’s lead singer, frances quinlan, having the best voice in music. im here to tell ya that i have not been so in awe and blown away by voice in many many years. here’s the thing that kinda pisses me off, she’s been doing this for ten years and i am now just hearing about her? better late than never, i suppose, but doesnt make the not knowing any easier to swallow. yeah she’s great, but the rest of hop along are no fucking slouches. everything about painted shut, from the lyrics, to frances’ voice, to the music is to put it plainly fucking awesome. i cannot get enough of this record, there is not one song on painted shut that doesnt kick all kinds of ass. as it stands right now, this is definitely my favorite record of the year. my favorite song off the record is “texas funeral” which you can find right down there.

buy painted shut via their bandcamp page or where you usually buy your records

smug brothers “meet a changing world”

Posted by gregor on Monday, May 4th, 2015

smug

i love smug brothers even though i havent written about them as much as i should have. i apologize for that. they have a new record out woodpecker paradise and its phenomenal. they’re from dayton, ohio, don trasher is in the band – ex-gbv, but kyle melton wrote all the songs. see where i am going with this? just listen to the damn song, enjoy, and buy their records. they got a bunch, but i would say this is their best one so far. definitely top 15 record status.

buy woodpecker paradise and their other releases via their bandcamp page

      i may say a lot of records are “great,” and thats no lie. i rarely say a record is a “masterpiece.” in fact i probably can say that for only about a dozen or so records. the everybodyfields 2007 release, nothing is okay, is a masterpiece. its probably the most gorgeous and heartbreaking record i […]
