zoe muth and the lost high rollers "before the night is gone"

Posted by gregor on Sunday, January 29th, 2012

i really, really hate when this happens. an artist i really dig releases a record, and i am none the wiser. in this case its zoe muth and the lost high rollers’ starlight hotel which was released all the way back in april of 2011. seriously? how did this fly under my radar? some pr person isnt doin their job! or maybe im just not up on the music blogosphere? either way, im into listen number 3, and this could have easily been in my top 14 of 2011. so, so great.

i absolutely adore her voice and lyrical combo. she’s like a chick, woman – im sorry, that could be your best drinking buddy. always giving ya the real deal, no bullshit. you want the truth, look no further than zoe muth and this is why, lyrically, this is one of the better records i have heard in a year or two. i could talk about zoe all day, but her band is top notch and a perfect compliment for what she’s delivering. the album is filled with pedal steel, horns, dobro, some lovely backing haromonies, mandolin, etc. all the shit that i eat up like el famous burrito’s 3 taco diner plate. so highly recommended!

      hey gang! i am going to keep this short, sweet and to the point. this whole site is selfish, but lets be honest most sites that are run by normal joes/janes are selfish as shit. this is not a bad thing at all, cause we all want to push the music we love and want […]

      hope all you ‘mericans had a lovely and safe 4th! here’s a band, midnight, that hailed from the southside, or south suburbs – country club hills, homewood and olympia fields all of which i spent plenty of time in, of chicago in the mid to late 1970’s. i’ve never heard their 1974 release, into the […]
