Iíd also like to say thisÖ What Iím working on Iíd classify as Americana. Itís not from New Jersey, itís not The Gaslight Anthem, in fact, itís not even mine, but itís oursÖ Iím looking to the people who used folk and country music as a tradition and took what was past and moved forward. Wilco, Ryan Adams, Steve Earle, Guy Clark, the Highwaymen, Bob Dylan, etcÖ Iím not writing about straw hats and gin joints. Iím not writing about nostalgia or a time I wasnít born it. Iím writing about the last two years of my life since we wrote handwritten. This project is going to be based on things I learned early on musically, which were my motherís folk songs....
Shop Radio Cast will have a preorder of a new Horrible Crowes 7" for their new single, "Ladykiller" available on Monday at 1 pm EST. The b-side of the single is the band's cover of Kitty Purry's "Teenage Dream." The exclusive color for Shop Radio Cast is yellow and is limited to 300, so they will surely sell out fast.
Today we've got a pretty awesome performance from The Horrible Crowes playing "Behold the Hurricane" for you. The cut comes from the band's recent Troubadour show in LA. Check it out in the replies. If you haven't picked up the band's new album yet, this is your reminder.
Chances are that most of you know about The Horrible Crowes and already own their debut album Elsie, which hit stores today, on vinyl or CD. But if you needed one extra push to make the purchase, then perhaps you can take a moment and stream the album in its entirety on their AP.net profile now. As someone that's not a fan of The Gaslight Anthem, I was pleasantly surprised with the direction that Brian Fallon took with this album -- one that turned out to be among this year's best. And now I'm secretly hoping that he will continue to make music like this because I find it to be the perfect fit for his voice. I'll end on that note before I anger Gaslight fans any further, so head over
Brian Fallon has posted a blog talking about how the "magic and mystery" are being taken out of music by early leaks of songs. After some very basic searching: it seems an online radio station played the new track "Mary Ann."
In a new blog, Brian Fallon gives an update on his new project, The Horrible Crowes, which mentions tour plans and Ted Hutt as the producer for the upcoming 12-track album, as well as some extra tracks for iTunes and Record Store Day.
