Laura Benitez and the Heartache
Laura Benitez and the Heartache use the three chord tools of country music to tell the simple, unvarnished truth about love, too much whiskey, and the call of the road. On their new album, "With All Its Thorns," they delve deeper into country music's tradition of storytelling with songs about betrayal ("Secrets"), murder ("In Red"), and grief ("Ghostship"), with a whole lot of heartbreak in between. John Amen of No Depression says, "With All Its Thorns shows Benitez and company claiming their place in a competitive genre in which success is often secured by those who can best reconcile emulation and originality; i.e., 'making it new,' but not too new... Benitez and the Heartache strike their own persuasive balance, offering songs that will engage conventionalists and hybridists alike; in the process, honing an undeniable presence that, with time, will only grow more finely tuned."
Collisionville
Collisionville
This is an EP release show for Collisionville -- the new EP is called
"KEYS,". "Northern California's Collisionville fuses a loud, post-punk sound with down-home Americana to create sardonically sincere songs that are well put together and streaked with the humor that eludes more self-serious bands." Eliot Van Buskirk, Wired Magazine
