Celebrating Back pOrchEstra’s new album, “Voices in my Head (Genre Whiplash),” on Globe Records, …is available everywhere …on CD, USB-cards, and streaming / downloads ..
see https://orcd.co/dw640r4
(Vinyl coming later in the year)
It has songs from all over the map… Roots Rock, Americana, Country Blues, Western Swing, Cajun, and New Orleans music… originals and reworked classics by Hank Williams, Taj Mahal, Dan Hicks, Big Bill Broonzy, Bob Wills, Jimmy Reed, Joseph & Cleome Falcon and Bobby Charles.
“Subtitle of this album is Genre Whiplash, and I get it. You get everything from alt.rock to cajun, to country, to Brownie Ford era Western Swing. But the thing that keeps this set together is their excellent songwriting full of smooth never-miss-a-beat lines and vivid imagery.”
– Calvin Powers (added 4 songs onto rotation)
“Don’t buy this excellent album if you’re not open to a program that has roots in country and blues but zigzags all over the musical map. This largely acoustic string band—which formed on the West Coast during the pandemic—evokes artists from multiple decades over the last century and embraces everything from indie-rock and Americana to Celtic, Motown, and Western swing. If you need a reference point, look to bands like Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks and Asleep at the Wheel, whose records also draw on disparate sources.”
– Jeff Burger, Americana Highways (also at The Aquarian.com, Blogcritics.org)
We’ll have us some…resonator guitar, violin, bass, telecaster & drums… perhaps a few things you may have not heard before.
