And now for something completely different — releases we listened to last week
Raygun Cowboys - Bloodied But Unbroken, 2019
An incredible mojo of a totally billy Raygun Cowboys band from Edmonton comes from the
mix of rockabilly and psycho in equal proportion. They threw a real rock’n’roll bomb with all
their 19-year old rage.
Shirt Tail Stompers - Broadway Holdover, 2019
To the arrival of roaring twenties, Shirt Tail Stompers issued an album of the most powerful
traditional swing that will help you go through the Big Depression and drink the shit out of the
Crys Matthews - These Old Hands
An interesting and very beautiful album of a good transparent Americana from a singer
called Crys Matthews. A pleasant timbre, decent material, root styles — what’s not to love?
Bobby "Guitar" Porembski - Rockabilly, 2019
This time Bobby “Guitar” Porembski dressed up his performing and songwriting talent in a
swing rockabilly outfit. Though it didn’t came out worse than surf’n’western.
Televisionaries - Ram-A Lam-A, 2019
Fast, buoyant, energetic, good old-fashioned guitar surf with cheerful backs in a new EP by
Televisionaries from the Great Lakes.
The Wave Chargers - The Wave Chargers, 2019
In the beginning of 60’s, French invented their own version of rock’n’roll (made of twist, lol)
called yé-yé, and were very proud of it. The debut album of The Wave Chargers from Paris
makes us feel that deja vu. Yé-yé-surf!
Howlin' Ric & The Rocketeers - Waiting By The Dance Floor, 2019
A big contribution to American fifties stuff is the new album by Howlin’ Rick & The Rocketeers from Great Britain. Rock’n’roll meets rhythm’n’blues as if they were never apart.
