There are hints of lonesome, Western expanse to the album, which finds Parham wrestling with, as he says, the changing face of the American Dream…On ‘These American Blues,’ Parham travels through an America both mythic and all-too-real. It’s a cross-country journey of an album, so what are you waiting for? Hit the road.

Elmore Magazine premieres the full stream of the forthcoming album from Levi ParhamThese American Blues is due out on Music Road Records on June 24th.

Joy of Violent Movement reviews The Watters’ new single

07-04TheWatters_JoyofViolentMovement

Thanks to The Joy of Violent Movement for the great review of The Watters‘ new single “Great Unknown,” title track off of their forthcoming album, due out on July 1st:

Album title track and first single ‘Great Unknown’ has the band pairing Muscle Shoals soul with 70s AM rock — a soulful horn arrangement and Jenna Watters’ effortlessly soulful vocals are paired with jangling guitars and gently propulsive drumming, along with a careful and deliberate attention to craft. Lyrically, the song focuses on two very different things -taking a big chance on your dreams with the hope that things will come out in your favor but also on something that people often forget, sometimes you can’t fight the tide; things will sort themselves out in their own time and in their own way even your own dreams.
