Okkervil River- 'Away'

Loving the artwork for the upcoming Okkervil River LP 'Away'...



Not sure if I particularly like the songs but the production, mix and orchestration is sumptuous plus there's a nod of respect to Mickey Newbury with wind chimes, thunder and bird noises between the tracks.
'Away' will be released 9/9/16 on ATO Records.

Bonanza & Son on ResonanceFM 'Album Of The Month' August 2016

Bonanza & Son on ResonanceFM 'Album Of The Month' August 2016:
Jacob Yates & The Pearly Gate Lock Pickers - 'Goths' (Va Va Records)




People haven’t made albums like this for years, not since the Thatcher years have bands got together for all the right reasons ie purely to create under and about such difficult and agitated circumstances… Pop music as art whose only utility is to be appreciated and studied…

Here you have a band who show as much affinity with Johnny Cash, Charlie Patton and Hank Williams as they do Max Ernst, Hieronymus Bosch or Albrecht Durer...

I guess the time is right and it’s perfectly of its time inasmuch as there are real parallels to be drawn between those bleak, dark days of the mid 80's and these times of comedy governments purporting to be kindly lambs but wearing the most vicious lupine coats made from the blood-stained threads of austerity and other people’s suffering…

However enough of the darkness already, let's head towards the light and even on the darkest of ditties Jacob Yates & The Pearly Gate Lock Pickers come on like a demonic Son of a Preacher-man telling tales of drunkeness and cruelty, violence and loathing and biblical warnings of future portentous events but always at the end of their musical tunnels are chinks of fractured, sparkling light making each and every song an Apocalyptic-Gospel hymnal.

You can almost see Jacob charming snakes and speaking in tongues as he comes down from the mountain with his dark but always redemptive Doom-Wop and Death-Country.

‘Goths’ is both the perfect soundtrack and the antidote for a world weary of bad news, tired of seeing and seriously in need of redemption and deliverance.

Listen to our Grant Lee Phillips live session & interview

This week's Bonanza & Son on ResonanceFM is available to listen on demand right now....
We are very excited to be broadcasting a live session from Grant Lee Phillips... A session which in all honesty quite literally stopped us in our tracks and had us close to tears... and I'm not the only person to say that... It really is quite phenomenal.... Just click the Mixcloud link below...



Rolling Stone magazine described Grant's new album 'The Narrows' as one of the most anticipated Country albums of the year and we wouldn't argue with that in fact it's our favourite album of the year thus far.

We also run a competition to win tickets to see Cale Tyson at The Shacklewell Arms this coming Saturday 7th May PLUS a signed copy of his ace new album 'Careless Soul' + a ltd edition t-shirt courtesy of Clubhouse Records.



As always Bonanza & Son showcases the best of all the new and upcoming Americana, Country & Roots releases and this week we have some truly amazing records to play you...

And of course it wouldn't be Bonanza & Son without lots of old vinyl that we've picked up along the Americana highway that is the past week of Bonanza & Son's crate digging and record buying plus selections from our trusty record shelves at home.
