Roundin’ Up The Raves: Bad Suns, July Talk, Whiskey Myers, The Rifles

We have an all-band lineup this week. Solo acts dominate the Top 40 (and have for most of this decade) but there’s a vibrant band scene in every city making killer music of every type. Listen to these, and then go find some more!

Let’s round ’em up.

frontBad Suns – Disappear Here

Tight indie pop-rock with an 80s sheen.

An album full of singles.

Catchy to the power of ridiculous.

July Talk – Touch

Tom Waits and Crystal Gale made an album together back in 1982. Now imagine if they reunited and made an album with Spoon.

Strange, beautiful, and addictive.

Some of these songs would fit comfortably on modern country radio, others would slot nicely into a Lynyrd Skynyrd setlist, and one would have gone Top 10 for Bad Company if they had recorded it in 1975.

Need a little more rock in your country? Take a shot of Whiskey Myers.

coverThe Rifles – Big Life

A double album in the grand tradition of such UK acts as The Clash and The Jam.
