Noteworthy new additions to our music collection.
Ashes & Dust
Gov't Mule's Warren Haynes is backed by the acclaimed string band Railroad Earth for his latest solo album. The first single, "Spots of Time," was co-written with the Grateful Dead's Phil Lesh. There are also appearances from Grace Potter, Shawn Colvin, and more.
"There are plenty of standouts here, like the acoustic waltz 'Josephine' and 'Get Low,' which has all the hallmarks of an essential Stornoway track but with some added pop muscle. The tone is ultimately warm and uplifting with the kind of wistful shadows that occasionally pass over the heart, giving the album a kind of humanity that is made even more attractive by Gil Norton's studio polish. More accessible yet no less honest than their first two records, Bonxie is an expansion of Stornoway's best attributes." -All Music
Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams
Two of the most in-demand artists in roots music, Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams, take center stage with their self-titled debut album on Red House Records. Their first album together features eight originals and three covers honed at Levon Helm's legendary Midnight Rambles.
"Having established their post-punk bona fides on Girls Like Us, PINS give their music more nuance and color on Wild Nights. Producer Dave Catching helps the band hone their attack on grinding rockers like 'Baby Bhangs' and 'Oh Lord,' both of which suggest what Girls Like Us might have sounded like with some extra muscle." -All Music
