In House #1817: The Silos' Come On Like the Fast Lane; New Son Volt
New York City's Silos released their thirteenth studio album last week, entitled Come On Like the Fast Lane. The band's debut for Bloodshot Records is full of the rock & twang ying & yang they've become known for over the last twenty years or so, evoking the likes of Alejandro Escovedo and The Replacements. It's hardly the sound one might expect from a band fronted by Walter Salas-Humara, the son of Cuban immigrants, and it doesn't exactly fit in amongst the Big Apple's current rock scene, but it may be just that kind of unexpected result that makes the band's music so enjoyable. They are, it seems, may things to many people-- as one review put it, they "suit east Texas every bit as much as the Lower East Side." The Silos begin a March tour in support of the new release this weekend along with Jon Dee Graham.
In House #1817.
Focus: New release from The Silos, Come On Like the Fast Lane, plus new music from Son Volt, Jesse Sykes & the Sweet Hereafter, Southern Culture On the Skids, and more.
