There was a time in my life when I listened to a lot of Robbie Fulks who is a great country/alt.country singer-songwriter from Chicago. Especially Let’s Kill Saturday Night was a big favourite back in 1998 (oh dear, 1998, where did those 15 years go, it feels like it was more like 5 years ago) and also 2005 release Georgia Hard got a lot of air time in this household. During the recent years I haven’t followed his career as closely as I probably should have. However, Bloodshot Records just released a new Robbie Fulks album Gone Away Backward and it sounds like my heart and Robbie’s music still work well together. You should definitely give this record a chance, if you are into traditional country sounds. I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve heard so far and further studies will take place sometime soon. This one is When You Got To The Bottom.
