Folk Family Revival #1517

Folk Family Revival consists of three brothers and their buddy, but they are definitely moving towards psychedelic rock rather than straight-up folk with their sophomore album, Waterwalker, out now on Rock Ridge Music. With a homemade liquid light show from a visually talented friend, the luxury of regular studio access, and no external time constraints on recording, Folk Family Revival leaps into new territory. The songs continue to grow, both intentionally and for diverse audiences ranging from post-line dance classes in a legendary Texas roadhouse to sportsbars, finding ways to keep audiences engaged and the music fresh.

Andy Gabbard (Buffalo Killers) #1508

Andy Gabbard‘s debut solo album, Fluff, definitely is not. This trippy-tinged collection of tunes brings fuzzy pop sense to Gabbard’s writings that do not fit the Buffalo Killers’ vibe. Fluff is not “trouble in paradise,” rather, it is an expansion of his creativity, like a second leg of vacation.

Lee Gallagher #1507

Lee Gallagher inhales the Bay area of California, making it part of who he is musically. After a few years in the area, Gallagher appreciates its history and vibe even more than when he was a Midwestern kid seeking something other than cornfields. He is not jaded about his roots, though, rather, he takes the indie roots rock foundation and filters it through his newer psychedelic surroundings. With two recent albums that deserve a listen, Lee Gallagher shares his appreciation for his new home region and musicians.

Drivin N Cryin EP Series

In early 2012, Drivin N Cryin announced a series of four EP’s, each with a theme. After adding guitarist Sadler Vaden and re-invigorating their tour schedule, it seemed like a brilliant move.

Kevn Kinney’s songwriting befuddles some critics, because he is so prolific and many times the “set of his best songs at that time” do not necessarily fit together in obvious ways. Fans expect the songs to range from folkie to country to punk to rock, but those who do not already “get” the band sometimes find them to be scattered. ┬áDrivin N Cryin exemplified Americana music before the term was coined.

I’m biased. I was one of those kids who waited in line at the record store to buy Scarred But Smarter when it was released. Drivin N Cryin had a huge local following just from their live shows well before the record was even released. They were one of the few local bands who frequently did an early all ages show before their “real” shows, and we always magically managed to sneak into the ones that were not all ages. (Thanks, RB!)

In June 2012, they released Songs From The Laundromat [Explicit].

In September 2012, they released Songs About Cars, Space and The Ramones

In April 2013, they will release Songs From The Psychedelic Time Clock.

2012 and 2013 have been amazing years for the resurgence of this band. At its core, Drivin N Cryin is the weird pairing of Kevn Kinney and Tim Neilson. A radio personality in Atlanta debuted his documentary about the band, Scarred But Smarter: The Life and Times of Drivin N Cryin, in March.

Check out a bunch of teasers for the film HERE. Look for our review later this week.
