New album from the singer/songwriter (best known for his work with Squirrel Nut Zippers). The late Memphis producer Jim Dickinson once called Jimbo Mathus ”the singing voice of Huck Finn.” Outside the South, Mathus is likely known as the ringleader of the hyper-ragtime outfit Squirrel Nut Zippers. In his native Mississippi and throughout the South, however, Mathus is the prolific songwriter of born-in-the-bone Southern music, the torchbearer for Deep South mythology and culture. Think Delta highways, bowling-pin Budweisers and ‘innerplanetary honky-tonk’ for the masses.

Red Stick Ramblers deliver an eclectic mix of Zydeco, Country, Bluegrass and Swing. They also deliver a shindig that is a festive Jamboree whether it is in Cajun country or anywhere else in the country for that matter. Their new album My Suitcase is Always Packed was releasedon Sugar Hill Records, and it is a perfect example of the diversity of influences that dwell in the collective soul of this band.The album is aptly named as it takes the listener on a road trip of Honky Tonks, Cajun dances and Southern countryside. Along the way they find love and lose it and they get happy and get the blues. The Ramblers are accomplished musicians. In fact, Linzay Young, better known for his smooth vocal styling, has been nominated for fiddler of the year by Offbeat Magazine and he may not be the best fiddler in the band. In the end on the final song of the journey, “The Barnyard Bachelor” the Ramblers give us the moral of the story, “There is only room in the barnyard for just one rooster and that means no chicks for you.”

While the album is definitely influenced by bands in both genres, it is truly unlike any album that has […]
The blues means many things to many people. To some, the purists, it is the scratchy honesty of Robert Johnson with his devil-fueled fretwork. To others, it is the rock n roll that he influenced, be it Cream, The Stones, or early Fleetwood Mac. When Five Horse Johnson formed back in 1995, referring to itself […]
