Show Post: In House #1528
Given his past work, both as a solo artist and as a member of the emo-tinged Waxwing, Rocky Votolato's upcoming Makers is something of a revelation. Although he's certainly revealed his country and folk influences in the past, they've never been more apparent than on the new album, a mostly dusty and brooding collection of tunes filled with flourishes of pedal steel and slide guitar. A childhood spent in Texas reared on Johnny Cash is just beginning to assert itself on Votolato's music, it would appear. Makers drops January 24th on Barsuk.
In House #1528.
Focus: Upcoming release from Rocky Votolato, Makers, plus new music from Jenny Lewis, Cat Power, Oakley Hall and more.
