Enter To Win Tickets To Natural Child!

Enter To Win Tickets To Natural Child!

The legendary Leon Russell is quoted as saying the following about Nashville stoner-boogie-blues-rock band Natural Child on the band's Facebook page: "Back in the summer of '09, back when I met 'em, Wez and Zack were eatin' weed brownies and they realized they needed Seth in the band. Well, they decided therefore and then to start the greatest rock 'n' roll band in the world - Natural Child. Probably known as much for what they say as what they do, they've earned a reputation for giving their audience the straight deal. Worldwide. They are currently in the process of buying Bill Wyman's bass amp from 1970. God bless 'em.” 

When Leon talks, you'd better listen. So...go grab their new album, Okey Dokey, from us, give it a few spins and then enter to win tickets to their October 4th show at the Tractor Tavern (21+) by e-mailing us with the subject line "Okey Dokey" and please include first & last name with entry. We'll draw a winner on 10/2. Good luck!

Album Review: Cass McCombs - "Mangy Love"

Album Review: Cass McCombs - "Mangy Love"

By Ian Bremner

Cass McCombs has been doing this a long time. He knows what he’s doing and he does not sit still. The Bay Area artist has been pumping out albums for a decade. He is an outstanding guitar player and songwriter, yet his style is always changing. His debut for Anti Records, Mangy Love, may be his best. Summer and Fall 2016 have been so good to us as music consumers.

Cass McCombs dropped Mangy Love in the middle of Frank Ocean hype and Angel Olsen’s instant-classic My Woman, but it deserves to be up there with both of those records. In this harshly political season, perhaps we can all listen to the words of McCombs and an album like Mangy Love. His wit and wry lyrics hit even deeper than normal and touch on everything including racist government, misogyny, California porn industry. Everything. It’s not a protest record or anything of the like, because you have to listen hard to pick up certain vibes, but that is never a chore on Mangy Love.

The music surrounding the messages is plain beautiful so it could be easy to get lost. Swirling guitars, horns flirting with soul tunes join blues and folk rock with a hint of '80s, but sometimes all at the same time, making it difficult to pin down, but very easy to enjoy.

Cass McCombs is always on TOUR!
