Labels: The Ribeye Brothers
First of all, The Ribeye Brothers are vocalist Tim Cronin and guitarist John Kleiman (both of Monster Magnet fame!). You can discribe their sound like a bad trip between the 60's pop & psychedelica of The Monkees and 13th Floor Eleveators and some bad ass country cowpunk kind of thing. 'New Ways to Fail' is the Brothers' last album, which was (self) released in 2009, their previous albums are 'Bar Ballads and Cautionary Tales' (2005) and 'If I Had a Horse', released in 2002. Enjoy.

Labels: Kill it Kid
Here's the debut album by a brand new UK based quintet, Kill it Kid, released on One Little Indian. Their heady melange of delta-blues and rootsy folk will some of you really enjoy. The album opens with a real blues-rocker, 'Heaven Never Seemed So Close', where a fuzzy slide guitars battles with a glassy violin, on 'Troubles Of Loretta' you'll hear rockabilly, or the swinging bluegrass of 'My Lips Won't Be Kept Clean', anyway, this is a varied album, with influences going from rock to blues and folk.
Btw, my excuses for my long absence.

Labels: Hell's Kitchen
Hell's Kitchen is a Geneva-based trio, they bring a hilarious style of blues, with a varied use of instruments, alternating from acoustic to electric guitar to banjo, slide to harp, spare drums to trash can percussion and a 'washtub' bass instead of a traditional bass.
It's not easy to try and make any comparisons, but Tom Waits jamming with The Experimental Tropic Blues Band is a nice start. Enjoy!

Labels: Hyacinth House
Started in 2003 Hyacinth House was Mack Johansson's solo project, but he was joined by fellow musicians ( up to 17!) when he released his self-titled debut in 2005, followed by 'Black Crows' Country' in 2007. Black Crows' Country is an intriguing and dark album with an angry combination of folk, rock and country. Whether it's an electric guitar, banjo, dobro, mandolin, harmonica or cello, this Swedish sextet use it with such a passion... Highly recommended!

Labels: Creech Holler
Thanks to 'Croooww' for introducing me into this amazing band, I've been listening to this all days since I got this. Here's Tennessee-based Creech Holler, a trio playing such a thrillin' mixture of country, blues and garage... damn, it's been a while when I've heard such an intensive blues/rock album.
The dark storylines and thick, fuzzy, primitive rhythms of Creech Holler's music take you to a Mississippi delta juke joint or a mountainside in Appalachia (from their Myspace-page). Take a listen to 'Serpent King' or 'Willie Williams' for example, words are inadequate here, 'Maggie Rose', Raymond Lee' ... hey... all 11 tracks are killer...
Croooww, once again, thank you very much.
