In House #1699: Scott H. Biram in Jackson Hole; New Old Crow Medicine Show
Shortly after being hit head-on by an 18-wheeler at 75 mph around three years ago, Scott H. Biram, the self-accused Dirty Old One Man Band, took to a stage in Austin, TX sporting an I.V. and several broken bones. That, perhaps, is Biram in a nutshell and more or less all you need to know if you've never heard his music. He's currently trailblazing the western U.S. in support of his latest Bloodshot release, Graveyard Shift, an album full of the unholy union of hillbilly and metal, with a bit of Haggard-esque trucker flavor thrown in for good measure. Tonight, Biram's foot pounds the stage at Jackson Hole's Mangy Moose.

Also today, music from the third and latest release from the Old Crow Medicine Show. The Nashville-based band's Big Iron World dropped yesterday on Nettwerk and continues the band's skirting of traditional and untraditional lines. David Rawlings once again produces for the OCMS, and also had a hand in writing five of the new tunes. They've shown they know a way with a cover tune (see Bob Dylan's "Wagon Wheel" on their last release), and they do it again this time around with a unique take on "Down Home Girl," written by the same guys responsible for "Hound Dog," and "Jailhouse Rock," and most recently covered by Nic Armstrong & the Thieves.
