Howdy,

The Pacific Northwest isn’t exactly the first place I think of when I think of twangy music, but Blitzen Trapper proves that not everyone up there is listening to grunge and sensitive coffee house types. They’ve got that low-fi indie-folk mentality coupled with an apparent mix-tape fascination ala Beck layered over a fascination with 70’s era country rock. I know I know. But it works for them. That’s all I can say. Check it out their latest CD, Furr.

I’ve been getting into Marc Broussard, who sorta reminds me of James Hunter only with more of a soul bent to him. Think equal parts James Hunter, Ben Harper, and Lyle Lovett. If you are into blue-eyed soul like I am, check him out.

Lastly this week, I’ve been digging into Patty Loveless’ latest CD, Sleepless nights. While the other two CDs I added this week are kinda out mixes of styles, Patty Lovless serves up beautiful and strong covers of traditional country fare from the likes of Dolly Parton, George Jones, Hank Williams and others. If you want to get yer twang on, start with her.

Dig Deep,
Calvin

Sleepless Nights by Patty Loveless

 Uncategorized  Comments Off on Sleepless Nights by Patty Loveless

Patty Loveless is known as one of the leading female vocalists in contemporary country music, so it’s good to see her using her latest CD, Sleepless Nights, to delve into the traditional country songs from yesteryear. She’s covering George Jones, Dolly Parton, Dickey Lee and Hank Williams on this CD and she covers them faithfully. Highlights for me include “Why Baby Why,” “Color Of The Blues,” “Please Help Me I’m Falling,” and “Cold Cold Heart.” The stand out track is “Don’t Let Me Cross Over.”

Furr by Blitzen Trapper

Blitzen Trapper’s latest CD, Furr, builds on their previous low-fi indie-folk asthetic and adds a mix-tape mentality that often borders on Sgt. Peppers-esque pop. But underneath it all they’ve still got that country-rock vibe going for them. I enjoyed “Gold For Bread,” “Furr,” and Fire and Fast Bullets.” But the real stando out tracks for me are “Sleepy Time In The Western World,” and “War On Machines.”

Keep Coming Back by Marc Broussard

Marc Broussard’s CD, Keep Coming Back, is full of big open blue-eyed soul that reminds me both of Ben Harper’s sophisticated-yet-authentic funk and Lyle Lovett’s big-band influenced twang. Highlights for me include the title track, “Man For Life,” and especially the duet with Leann Rimes “When It’s Good.”

Howdy,

The only thing I knew about Don Chambers and GOAT was that he was often the opening act for the Drive By Truckers and so it was no surprise to hear that Patterson Hood had produced Don Chamber’s Second CD, Zebulon. And it’s also no surprise that many tracks sound like they could have come from a BTs CD. What caught me by surprise though was the gospel tinged undercurrent that wanders in and out of the CD givinga redemptive, positive feel to thie sothern gothic rock. This one’s getting a lot of airplay in my car these days and I expectI’ll be fetauring it a lot in rotation.

The other new music this week is a sef-released disk from Ray William Roldan. Based in California, his first CD was sorty of half Bakersfield country half pseudo california surf rock. On his second CD he focuses more on the standard honky-tonk form and he brings a lot of good natured high two step music to us which I think suits him much better. He’s getting his goroove for sure.

Dig Deep,
Calvin

Zebulon by Don Chambers and GOAT

Don Chambers and GOAT are probably best known for their tours as the opening act of the Drive By Truckers and so it’s not surprising that Chambers’ 2008 release, which was produced by DBT frontman Patterson Hood, often sounds like a DBTs album. “Falling Off The Edge Of The World” is a great example. Don Chamber’s southern gothic rock has just enough of an Appalachian gospel tinge to keep the music grounded and moving along. Highlights include “Conjuring A Dead Rabbit,” “Open The Gates,” “Highwater,” “Fire In The Kitchen,” and especially, “Falling Off The Edge Of The World.”

When the front and back pictures on the CD cover feature a guy posing in front of his pickup, you know you’re in for some down home country and that’s exactly what you get on Ray William Roldan’s honky-tonk bonanza of a CD, Where We Come From. Highlights for me include “Cowboy Conscious,” “Something To Say,” “Pullin’ The Road,” and especially “Cowby Cadillac.”
