Really good vid of the Wrinkle Neck Mules performing the song Catfish & Color TVs on air last Thursday. This song is from their latest Let The Lead Fly.

Well here is probably my most anticipated album of the year. You guys have heard me talk about for a few months now, ever since I found out about it no less. Well I’m here to tell you, if you are already a fan of Wrinkle Neck Mules this album does not let down! It is everything a Wrinkle Neck Mules album should be….teemed to the brim and overflowing with sweet americana (or whatever they are calling it nowadays) sounds that are as unique as they are familiar.
McMurtry winner, Ray Wylie Hubbard movie, Wrinkle Neck Mules, new Scott Miller track, Carolyn Mark & NQ Arbuckle, etc
- jridgeway was the winner of the McMurtry CD/DVD. Thanks all for commenting and entering. Some great lyrics posted, some I have overlooked and will now be listening to more closely
- Ray Wylie Hubbard’s Last Rites of Ransom Pride has found a distributor and is getting close to having a release date. Unfortunately they are tweaking the soundtrack, does this mean no killer Ray Wylie soundtrack? God I hope not!
- Wrinkle Neck Mules latest album Let The Lead Fly was pushed back to to October 20th release date. That’s next Tuesday. It says in that story that it’s a great album for fall driving through the mountains…..true statement, as I have come to the same conclusion.
- Scott Miller has a new track that will be available for download on his site and help fund his upcoming album. I don’t have the specifics cause dammit I lost the email. In the meantime, enjoy some of the killer vids he has made on his site.
- Just wanted to give a heads up for the Carolyn Mark and NQ Arbuckle album Let’s Just Stay Here which comes out tomorrow. Carolyn is half of canadian supergroup The Corn Sisters (with Neko Case), and as you know, NQ Arbuckle made one of my favorite albums of 2008. The album also features an unexpected cameo from fellow canadian Corb Lund.
- In Drive By Trucker news, according to Patterson they have recorded material for 2 upcoming releases. Can’t wait
Big news for alt-country (whatever that is) fans, and music lovers in general today as No Depression has put all of it’s past articles, reviews, letters, pretty much the whole of the magazine minus ads, online today in the No Depression Archives. I bet I spent 3 hours this afternoon looking through old articles (some really interesting V-Roys articles in there for Scott Miller fans). Can’t wait to dig in some more.
No shit fit here.
Go git it.
I have no idea what they sound like, but, if I did it, it’s ’cause I wanted somebody to hear it.
That ain’t stealin’ it’s sharin’, ’cause none of this was ever for sale, or, intended for sale…
Well there’s a lot of stuff to talk about here. First off, that Ribbonpigeon album from the last post, well they emailed me to let me know that they just changed their name to The Only Sons and are working with a label for a distribution deal with that album and the one prior. Can’t wait for that.
How about some Todd Snider news? Todd’s new album The Excitement Plan is now available for pre-order. Due out on June 6, the $40 dollar deluxe pre-order box set features some cool items. Like each set will be signed and numbered by Todd (limited to 500), a DVD of the Peace Queer movie, a bonus disc of songs, 3 stickers, and even a Todd Snider flag! Pretty sweet.
Now on to Scott Miller. Those of you like myself who got the Appalachian Refugee demo CD AND pre-ordered the new album back in december (or was it november?) may have noticed a glaring omission from the album…..that omission was the sublime song Appalachian Refugee. Well Scott has heeded his fans call and decided to include the song on the street version of the album (due out Next Tuesday). Now here is the cool part, since the folks who pre-ordered the album did not get this track, he made it available for download on his site. This is a highly recommended download. Also while you are there check out his new site, he finally updated it to reflect the computer age
Wrinkle Neck Mules….I know there are a few fans of them out there . Well good news as they have recorded over 30 songs and are thinking of releasing possibly a double album or some kind of box set sometime this year. Read about it here.
Some odds and ends. The new Steve Earle album kicks all kinds of ass, The Steeldrivers are in the studio working on their followup, Magnolia Electric Co. have a 7″ EP coming out April 18th featuring 4 unreleased songs, and Jimbo Mathus just put out a new album called Jimmy The Kid that is somehow impossible to buy but you can listen to samples on his myspace page.
That’s right, a 2-for-1 RE-POST-TACULAR!!!
I pulled these off their official site a while back, made some artwork and posted em up here. Well now I’m re-posting them. Why, well mostly for Vaughn…..but also because they are a great band who put out an excellent album this year called “The Wicks Have Met“. If you like rootsy, acoustic driven music….you will dig this. If you like the acoustic side of Uncle Tupelo, you will surely dig this.
Been checking out youtube, thought I’d post some. Remember when MTV used to actually show videos, and they were worth watching. Maybe we can call this TTV…..I dunno one too many t’s in there.
up first: Wrinkle Neck Mules – Mecklenburg Country (Live at Cinco De Mayo Festival, Richmond….I posted a bootleg of this earlier)
Next up, one of my fave songs by one of my fave unheards: Corb Lund – Roughest Neck Around (this is some homemade video cause they took down the real one…..which is a shame cause it was a damned good video)
Here we have the official video of depression era-metal head Scott H. Biram’s “Hit The Road”
Stones revivalist The Deadstring Brothers with their video for “Sacred Heart”
and let’s finish this set out with something mellow…..Cat Power – “Lived in Bars”
They have a new album that just came out. It’s called “Wicks Have Met” and you can buy it here (I haven’t heard it yet….but that’s just becuase I haven’t bought it yet).
