Ruffian's Misfortune

New CD: $12.98   $11.68 Buy

When it comes to down ‘n’ dirty roots ‘n’ roll, nobody in the wide world of Americana music today does it better than Ray Wylie Hubbard. From his humble beginnings as an Oklahoma folkie in the ‘60s to his wild ride through the ‘70s progressive country movement, and onward through the honky-tonk fog of the ‘80s to his sobriety-empowered comeback as a song writer’s songwriter in the ‘90s. Hubbard was already a bonafied legend by the time he really found his groove right at the turn of the century. Beginning with 2001’s aptly-titled Eternal and Lowdown through to his latest and greatest release. 2015’s The Ruffian’s Misfortune, he has spent well over a decade now chasing hellhounds through muddy waters and deep into the underbelly of the blues, with a Lightnin’ Hopkins gleam in his eyes and a Rolling Stones swagger in his step.

James McMurtry spins stories with a poet's pen ('Long Island Shores') and a painter's precision ('She Loves Me'). Proof: The acclaimed songwriter's new 'Complicated Game'. McMurtry's first collection in six years spotlights a craftsman in absolutely peak form as he turns from political toward personal ('These Things I've Come to Know, You Got to Me'). 'The lyrical theme is mostly about relationships', McMurtry says. 'It's also a little about the big old world verses the poor little farmer or fisherman. I never make a conscious decision about what to write about.'

Billy Gibbons And The BFG's
Perfectamundo, the debut solo album from Billy Gibbons, ZZ Top guitarist/vocalist and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, is a blend of Blues, Jazz, Latin and Rock sensibilities, as Gibbons explores songs with a new backing band, The BFG's, who are a handpicked group of musicians selected for this unique outing. The album itself was inspired by Billy's early influence of Cuban Jazz and studying Latin percussion with Tito Puente in New York at an early age. "My dad sent me up to New York to study Latin percussion with Tito Puente. I learned maracas, timbales, clavas, bongos...you name it," Gibbons says. "And having lived in Mexico a couple years, I know just enough Spanish to get me in trouble." As the title may suggest, the album takes on a bit of an Afro-Cuban flavor that may come as a surprise to some Gibbons fans and followers. The album originated with Gibbons invitation to perform at the 2014 Havana Jazz Festival. While he was unable to make it to Cuba, Billy did commence exploring the potential for an Afro-Cuban inflected album project at his Houston studio. The musical genius of Billy Gibbons is to be heard on his first ever solo album, refreshingly unexpected but most predictably..Perfectamundo. ˇEscuchemos!

FABLES is a sparse, poignant set of songs crafted around Ramirez' starkly beautiful baritone, which the New York Times once described as full of "haggard loneliness." In a world full of singer-songwriters hawking their stories, Ramirez has managed to stand out from the noise, developing a fiercely loyal following of fans who are drawn to his intimately personal songwriting. The album's title, 'FABLES,' was inspired by the first single, "Harder to Lie," which captures the moment Ramirez realized, as he puts it, "I couldn't bullsh*t with her [my girlfriend] anymore. She knew me completely. It got me thinking about how much I bullsh*t in my life - exaggerating stories, faking a smile, or whatever. Just telling fables. When you don t know who you really are you can end up hurting people."

The album was co-produced by Tyler and Thom Monahan (Chris Robinson, Devendra Banhart, Vetiver) in both Tyler's native Dallas, Texas and his adopted hometown of Los Angeles, California.

Applying what he learned through writing and recording Sun Marquee, Landscape Dream is a natural progression, demonstrating how much Shook's songwriting and production acumen has sharpened over the past year. Sun Marquee was a learning process where songs were often forced out of experiments in recording techniques.

East Cameron Folkcore
Concerning albums where politics are paramount, the bad ones blow hard like a college student high on Chomsky, while the best sublimate social unrest into art that's personal and poetic. It's the difference between Anti-Flag and Billy Bragg, and the difference between protest and revolution. Kingdom of Fear, the ambitious third full-length by local rock renegades East Cameron Folkcore, lands heart-first in the latter. "Greed is winning" declares a chilling poem, setting the stage for ECF's four-section concept album, in which voice-of-the-voiceless anthems bleed together in gapless sequence. Blake Bernstein's title track, harkening the melody of John Prine's "Paradise," notes mankind's infantile tendencies: "Still take naps, still drink from the bottle, still cry without cause/ Not responsible for our own actions, it's always someone else's fault." Soon, Jesse Moore's husky throat assails our work-a-day world over thundering floor toms and cabaret horns in "The Joke." Attention turns to Austin on gentrification tragedies "Our City" and "Blackheart for a Beating Drum," harnessing enough passion to crumble condos. At last, the band serenades a sinking ship on the madcap outro of "Into Hell's Sea." Epic in every sense of the word, ECF's hourlong Kingdom of Fear delivers as powerfully as its weighty subject matter. - Austin Chronicle

"There is a charming, vintage vibe to many of the album's tracks, with Froom and Edmonson striking a nice balance between cuts that have a retro, orchestral AM pop sound, such as the swinging ballad "Oh My Love," and a more contemporary folk sound, as on the poignant "All the Way." Elsewhere, Edmonson delves into Ennio Morricone spaghetti Western drama ("You Can't Break My Heart"), breezy '60s lounge music ("Avion"), and Brill Building echo-chamber romanticism ("For Two"). Ultimately, by bringing all of her influences together with Froom's help, Edmonson's own unmistakable sound comes into fine focus on The Big Picture." - All Music
