Just back from a road trip to Connecticut. One more state to cross off the list (The 50 states! Collect ’em all!). No time to dilly-dally or dawdle. Down to business.
Let’s round ’em up.
Elizabeth Cook – Exodus Of Venus
If Stevie Nicks grew up in the swamps …
Cook has her own radio show on Sirius, touted as “a mix of Americana, Outlaw, and Alt Country.”
Bear Hands – You’ll Pay For This
Tight electro-rock out of Brooklyn.
Bear Hands. Keepin’ it furry.
Jamie T doesn’t do one thing well.
He does 20 things well.
Uncannily evokes the best of The Clash, Blur, Simian, and latter-day Stones. And then spits dope rhymes in between.
A Dutch country singer? You bet your boots.
More urban cowboy than hayseed kicker.
