Hard Working Americans may just be the best supergroup you've probably never heard of. The powerhouse sextet is a side project for its impressive roster that includes alt-country singer/songwriter Todd Snider; guitarist Neal Casal of Chris Robinson Brotherhood and (formerly) Ryan Adams' band the Cardinals; bassist Dave Schools of Widespread Panic, as well as its recent interim drummer Duane Trucks (nephew of Butch and brother of Derek); keyboardist Chad Staehly of Great American Taxi; and guitarist Jesse Aycock.
Hypnotic, lush and exhilirating, the latest from Brothers Lazaroff builds upon the veteran St. Louis band's soul and psych-influenced sound with horns, strings and synths. It's the kind of song that just might stay on your mind "Day and Night."
Jay Farrar took to the stage on a steamy Saturday night, delivering a signature set of lonesome melodies.
Blitzen Trapper returns this fall with a new album that keeps its focus on the lyrical folk, rock and twang that's been its strong suit. The new track, "Lonesome Angel," is the Portland, Oregon band at its best.
The Fog Lights is a side project (of sorts) of Justin Johnson (Pretty Little Empire) and Jim Peters (Upright Animals and Javier Mendoza), a chance to explore the two St. Louis musicians' love of acoustic music and close harmonies. "Lead the Way" beautifully illustrates the fruits of their musical friendship.
