Oil Boom “The Great American Shakedown”
from Gold Yeller (Oil Boom 2012) N —A couple of tracks from this Dallas/Ft. Worth band's 2nd album, an EP. They've been in St. Louis a couple of times so hopefully they're back soon. They remind me a bit of The Black Keys.
The Black Keys “Unknown Brother”
from Brothers CD Album (Nonesuch www.nonesuch.com 2010) —The one bad thing about having a deep cut as your favorite track is that the band never seems to play it live. I'm still waiting Black Keys.
The Dirty Guv'nahs “Fairlane”
from Live @ KDHX 8-19-2012 (KDHX 2012) N —The Dirty Guv'nahs, a Knoxville, TN band, were kind enough to stop by the studios before their show at the Old Rockhouse on Monday night.
Amy Cook “Waiting 4 the World 2 End”
from Summer Skin (Roothouse Records 2012) N —From this LA raised, Austin-based musician. She has help from the likes of Robert Plant, Patti Griffin and Ben Kweller on this album.
Tift Merritt “Still Not Home”
from Traveling Alone (Yep Roc 2012) N —From Tift's brand new album featuring her band of Marc Ribot, Eric Heywood, John Convertino & Jay Brown. The album was produced by Tucker Martine, best known for having once been a public radio DJ!
The Orwells “Mallrats (La La La)”
from Remember When (Autumn Tone 2012) N —Playing the Loufest Aftershow at the Firebird this Saturday with Little Barrie and Audacity. Starts at 10:00 so you can head over directly from Forest Park.
