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.

josh rouse “some days im golden all night”

Posted by gregor on Tuesday, June 2nd, 2015

rouse

many moons ago, josh rouse was an artist i was hugely excited about. i loved his first 4 records, mostly, although dressed up like nebraska and 1972 were my favorites, then something happened. he moved to spain, and i subsequently stopped caring. its been many years, and maybe i would like those records now, but at the time, hated em. he’s got a new record out entitled the embers of times, i must say, its everything i loved about josh over those first 4 records. i would even go out on a limb and say its probably his best record since his debut, dressed up like nebraska. definitely at least a top 20 record for 2015.

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
