This Is American Music is one of my favourite labels. These are the latest gems from their treasure vault of great current American music.
Caleb Caudle’s new album Paint Another Layer on My Heart will be coming out in late June 2014 on This Is American Music. Therefore I haven’t heard the whole thing yet, but the expectations are extremely high after hearing the first outtake from the forthcoming album a week ago. This wonderful song is called How’d You Learn and it goes like this.
Fire Mountain’s debut full-length All Dies Down came out on TIAM on 20th of May and it has been on my playlist ever since. All Dies Down is a damn fine americana release. The title might seem a little hopeless, but this is not just doom and gloom. This thing actually holds a lot of beauty inside. These southern folk rockers certainly have a certain pop sensibility as well. This is Doing Fine from Fire Mountain’s new album.
I’ve shortly featured Kent Goolsby a few times over the years. This Is American Music released the new single Hitched by Kent Goolsby & The Gold Standard last week and it’s another great one. I’m very much enjoying the old-timey charm of this one. The B-Side Blues was also lovely little tune that made me smile, but this is the lead track Hitched.
