Laura Cantrell – No Way There From Here (2013)

Posted by on October 20, 2013 with No Commentsas

frontAcclaimed Nashville-born, New York City-based country singer-songwriter Laura Cantrell returns with her beautiful new album No Way There From Here.  Produced by Cantrell and Mark Nevers, the 12-track album was recorded in Nashville’s acclaimed Beech House studios and features writing collaborations with Tracyanne Campbell (Camera Obscura), Amy Allison and Franklin Bruno, as well as guest musicians Jim Lauderdale, Kenny Vaughan, Michael Cerveris, Caitlin Rose, William Tyler (Lambchop), Paul Niehaus (Lambchop, Calexico) and Paul Burch. Of making the new album, Cantrell says, “Each recording project presents a fresh question to answer about what you’re doing and why. For this record, where I’ve worked for the first time with mostly my own songs and point of view, the pressure I’ve felt is to find what suits each song and do it justice. It was challenging and exciting, because I have had to really define the sound.”

Arliss Nancy – Wild American Runners (2013)

Posted by on October 20, 2013 with No Commentsas

arMusic; it is an element in life that can provide the perfect accompaniment to an activity. This varies, as the activity requires a mood, an atmosphere and the imagination. Whilst listening to this third full length from Arliss Nancy, this reviewer has been reading the Kerouac classic ‘On the Road’. Reading this book has certainly helped to get into the skin of this album, aptly titled ‘Wild American Runners’. For what’s it worth, after taking it all in, it’s surprising that the band aren’t well known as this record is good for the following reasons.
Arliss Nancy season their own take on blue collar influenced roots rock and gritty Americana punk rock. Every song is lead forth by Chris Love’s sweetly sounding keys and the whisky soaked vocals from Cory Call. All the while, these components are lifted by the guitars, bass, drums and harmony fringed backing vocals. Arliss Nancy as an outfit is fined tuned, subtle in touch and features gruff heart on sleeve honesty. ‘Nathaniel’, ‘Both Got Old’ and ‘Coals’ are a few examples that show off this neatly done formula. Final tracks ‘The GB Shuffle’ and ‘Vonnegut’ bring in an acoustic guitar to this formula to round off the album with a sense of clarity.

Sean Chambers – The Rock House Sessions (2013)

Posted by on October 20, 2013 with No Commentsas

Undoubtedly, the latest record from veteran blues rock frontman Sean Chambers is a gutty compilation of legendary musicians and recognizable tunes with a hard edge. The Rock House Sessions was recorded in Nashville with Reese Wynans producing, a first for both Wynans and Chambers. Chambers certainly knows his way around a guitar. The first track […]

Nits – In The Dutch Mountains (1987)

Posted by on October 20, 2013 with No Commentsas

After the synthesized hijinks and tomfoolery that blighted much of Henk, the Nits — once again a four-piece with the addition of bassist Joke Geraets — opted for a return to simplicity with In the Dutch Mountains. The result was an album that probably did more to seduce listeners far beyond their homeland than any […]
