For their new self-titled release, their sixth, Blue Skies For Black Hearts pulls from the American musical fabric they were born into, past and present, and tie it together in a harmony-laden long player that sings like a back highway, cross-country summer road trip. Setting aside the brit pop revival sounds common to their previous releases, this Portland, Or quintet’s newest endeavor is firmly rooted in the spirit of other American rock and roll greats like Petty, Chilton, and Doug Sahm (who the band frequently covers in live sets) where undeniable hooks and sing-along choruses are king.

Jono Manson and his band cook up a saucy brew of blues and rock, as shaky vocals, guttering guitar riffs, and solid drumming combine to deliver a sharpened hook.

The Gary Douglas Band brings high-octane rock with a twist, drawing on americana, blues, and folk influences. Their sound packs a punch with irresistable melodies, soaring guitars, and searing harmonies.

Liam Bailey’s sonic stew contains a rich broth of ingredients. He sings with a raw expressiveness that has been compared to Bob Marley and Sam Cooke, yet his songwriting style is liable to reference post Punk bands like The Smiths and Oasis. Everything is woven together by a lean guitar-driven instrumental sound, perfectly framing Liam’s lyrical and vocal passions.

This album made up the basis for what would become the original score to the Billy Bob Thornton film “Sling Blade”. Also included are four tracks that did not make it onto the soundtrack. These songs came alive with the amazing story and stunning visuals that Billy Bob created. The original soundtrack to this film which included some of this material, is long out of print, so when we stumbled on a few boxes of these while sweeping up, it made perfect sense to release this through our store in both physical and digital formats.
