Hearts Of Oak – Used To It Now (2011)

Posted by on January 28, 2013 with No Commentsas

hearts of oak hoesLife seems to be playing out more like a sappy country song these days. Since back from TX, there’s hardly been a day without a new verse… Despite that, trying to get back to more regular posts. And listening to this a lot lately. “Used To It Now,” the second album from Portland, Oregon’s Hearts Of Oak which is Nate Wallace and friends. Hearts of Oak is a hidden gem for anyone who likes genuine country music and americana. This album has some incredibly impressive songwriting and immediately makes you feel like you are listening to early Bob Dylan, Neil Young or Steve Earle. If you are a fan of songwriters like Ryan Bingham or John Prine you will love Hearts of Oak.

The Slaughterhouse Chorus – The Slaughterhouse Chorus (2012)

Posted by on January 28, 2013 with No Commentsas

slaThe Slaughterhouse Chorus is a blend of twangy, down-home hillbilly rock infused with a heavy dose of punk and a tinge of folk. (Not exactly what you’d expect from a band hailing from New York City.) If the Supersuckers fucked Larry And His Flask, or vice versa,The Slaughterhouse Chorus would be their illegitimate love child.
The band’s inaugural self-tilted EP is a 13-track hell-bound hayride through the heart of America via the streets of The Great Apple; and is just as unpredictable. The album sways seamlessly, yet purposefully, like “Amber Waves of Cocaine”, the opening track (which sets the stage for the ensuing managed mayhem). The following three songs, “A Month Without”, “Built for BBQ” and “Let’s Get Invisible” exude more country-esque qualities than punk, but “For God and Country” rekindles the rock ‘n’ roll fervor. “The Full Nelson” is nothing more than pure, unadulterated rock, replete with ample baby-makin’ guitar solos; which ironically segues into a grab-your-partner swing-type instrumental affectionately dubbed “All My Mistakes are Your Fault Tonight”.
