King Corduroy – All Right
Deep in the recesses of Rock is the New Roll H.Q. we have been going down more than a few Southern Rock rabbit holes. He calls his music Cosmic Southern Soul Music, but we just call it cool. There is more than a little 70’s Leon Russell swagger bandied about with this guy.
Raphael Saadiq – This World is Drunk
His new record, Jimmy Lee, is dedicated to his deceased brother. This triumphant return by an artist that consistently delivers thought provoking music that never fails to sooth the soul.
Yola – It Ain’t Easier
Most followers of Rock is the New Roll already know we are HUGE fans of pretty much any record that comes out of Easy Eye Sound. Yola’s new album, Walk Through The Fire, is a strong contender for song of the year.
Conway Twitty – Southern Comfort
With the current trend of contemporary Roots Americana artists reaching back to the classic outlaw artists of the day for their influences it is always good to go back to the barrooms in search of the originals. Here is a later day Conway Twitty gem that sounds like it could be a Chris Stapleton song.
The Wild – Playing With Fire
Canadian rockers, The Wild, throw it down like a more melodic Motörhead.
Lee Aaron – Watcha Do To My Body
And, speaking of Rock Chicks, the 30th anniversary of Lee Aaron’s Bodyrock is upon us.
