The Yawpers’ third album Boy in a Well is a sensational tragedy set in World War I France about a mother abandoning her unwanted newborn child. But, like the band itself, there’s so much more roiling beneath the surface. Boy in a Well is complex; it’s a manically conceived, historically situated, emotionally underscored, plot-driven fictive universe. It’s demented, unpredictable, taboo, ambitious and yet distinctively cohesive.
The Blackfoot Gypsies have unleashed a set of original roadhouse rockin' tunes with To the Top on Plowboy Records. The Nashville, Tennessee-based powerhouse quartet demonstrate raucous energy and soul on this collection, delivering their take on white-knuckled rock 'n' roll.
