Shakey Graves - Roll The Bones

Roll the Bones Cover Art

Every now and then I stumble upon this ugly cowhead cover during my bandcamp walks. Always near the top of items tagged alt country, folk, blues, lo fi and Austin Texas. Finally this album awakened my interest and I was very pleasantly surprised. I highly recommend listening to it, but my advice is to forget all aforementioned tags, 'cause this guy's music can't be placed in any drawer - it's much wider than that. Just listen to the only cover on this record / Bruce Springsteen's I'm On Fire. Unlike many other renditions, this one is based on bass and rhythm and interesting backing vocals.Of original songs, my favorite would be Georgia Moon. Emotional one!
