Shakey Graves – Roll the Bones

You don’t normally hear of a lot of original-sounding bands coming out of Austin, in fact Texas as a whole tends to follow the same twangy style of country lines. That was, until Shakey Graves. Instead of going the whole looping route that you see a lot of one-man bands doing, Shakey Graves decides to play everything at once. Using his guitar as both a bass and a main guitar line and each foot working a different percussive element, he’s able to establish a sound by himself many bands take at least three to achieve. Take a look at a live video for his song “Roll the Bones” courtesy of the Good Music Club. Read More…

St. Paul and the Broken Bones – Call Me

Not many big band/soul acts get to see the mainstream light of day anymore, so when one breaks out you know they have to be pretty darn good. As is the story of St. Paul and the Broken Bones. Bringing their southern blues-infused soul-soaked music around the country on their first country-wide tour, they’ve been setting the precedent for emotion-based performances. Check out the song “Call Me” off a currently untitled upcoming album below. Read More…

Gogol Bordello – Start Wearing Purple

Most of us are aware now of the eccentric stylings of Gogol Bordello. Even though they sound like they’re straight out of eastern Europe, their music is perfectly representative of where they actually come from: New York City. The diversity of the lower east side of Manhattan shines through the music in every crash, clang, twink, and twog of a multitude of instrumentation. “Polka meets ska meets blues meets indie” might sound like a weird statement, but if you know Gogol Bordello, it doesn’t seem as strange. Check out the track “Start Wearing Purple” off their new album Pura Vida Conspiracy below. Read More…

The Kabbs – Get On My Way

San Diego, California’s The Kabbs were just four dudes who liked to hang out and jam, until they got their act together and started working towards actually making music. What resulted was some fresh garage rock with blues-y undertones and a twang-y drawl. With a production style similar to that of The Brian Jonestown Massacre, the EP has a real throwback feel, making you feel like you’re listening to a band that’s about to break out. Check out their newest release “Get On My Way” on their bandcamp below. Read More…
