Steve Earle & The Dukes: Live At The Continental Club In Austin Texas

Steve Earle & The Dukes: Live At The Continental Club In Austin Texas

“Are You Sure Hand Done It This Way,” roils up off of one chord progression, the opener cover of Steve Earle And The Dukes new Live At The Continental Club Austin Texas. It’s not very hard to get grabbed, locked and deeply infected by Earle’s tunes, but with his chunkin’ 5- piece behind him, there’s no getting out of this mess…not that you’d want to.

Joe Grushecky and the Houserockers: More Yesterdays Than Tomorrow

Joe Grushecky and the Houserockers: More Yesterdays Than Tomorrow

Joe Grushecky is from that hard working, simple songwriting east-coast truth teller school, pretty much like N.J.’s favorite son, Bruce Springsteen…who is among Joe Grushecky’s friends. More Yesterdays Than Tomorrow is tightly wound, perfectly executed and well-written and even if there are more days past then coming from this songwriter, singer, guitarist his new album is a real good time.

Willie Nelson: Last Man Standing

Willie Nelson: Last Man Standing

Willie Nelson’s 67th album, Last Man Standing, (yeah 67th, you read right) opens with a great wry country funk title track addressing the 85-year-old country legend’s specific place smack dab in the center of lots of his famous friends dying. Willie may indeed want to be the last man standing, but he’s also rockin’ across these 11 new tunes.

The Motels: Last Few Beautiful Days

The Motels: Last Few Beautiful Days

weeping strings and the chimes of a clock start “Punchline,” the opener of The Motel’s new album, Last Few Beautiful Days. Leader singer, songwriter, original member Martha Davis is in fine voice, maybe slightly more limited than in her MTV-heyday when this band was kicking hits like “Only the Lonely” and “Suddenly Last Summer” out of the park. But the band-guitarist Clint Walsh, drummer Eric Gardner, bassist Nicholas Allen Johns and sax, piano and clarinet player Marty Jourard-provide some nice counter keyboard melody, soft guitar work and a steady beat for this first tune and weave their tight 80’s-sounding tapestry throughout.
