More Music from the Inbox: 25 September 2012

Juliette Jagger once again passes final judgement on the dozens of music submissions that came in over the past week.  Keep ’em coming.  Just be aware that only a few artists/tracks make it through the double-filter review process.  – AC

Artist: The Zolas, “Knot in My Heart”

Album: Ancient Mars

This song smells like love in your youth and awkward intrigue all wrapped up in great lines like “I feel my joints when your weather shifts.” 

Sounds like: Wordsmiths.



Artist: The Bohannons, “Goodbye Bill”

Album: Unaka Rising

The Bohannons’ have this heavy heart that feels like blues, but this almost boarderline Geddy Lee vocal delivery, and then they go and almost sound like 70’s metal. The bottom line is that the Bohannons’ are some good ‘ol kick a little dirt in your face rock and roll.

Sounds like: She’s hot and heavy as hell.



Artist: Pony Boy, “Hollywood Forever, Cemetery Sings”

Album: Single

This is a great cover of Father John Misty. Pony Boy’s voice has a dust on your boots and booze on your breath kind of pretty, pretty hurt to it.

Sounds like:  Smoky.



Artist: Strange Talk, “Roxanne”

Album: Single 

An interesting rendition of a classic – worth the listen!

Sounds like: Good luck trying to play this version as a drinking game.



Artist: We Need Surgery, “Stranger”

Album: We Need Surgery

Formed in Seoul, South Korea and comprised of 2 Canadians, 2 Americans, and 1 Korean, We Need Surgery somehow sound British, but I dig it.

Sounds like: 80’s post-punk meets UK new wave.

Link/Listen/Watch: Stream it here.
