Nashville hellraisers Denney & the Jets will release their debut album, Mexican Coke, on April 8 via Burger Records. (Denney's previous releases were via JEFF the Brotherhood's Infinity Cat imprint.) The record was produced by Andrija Tokic (who was at the boards for Alabama Shakes' Boys and Girls) and is a heaping helping of southern fried, honky tonk rock n' roll. According to main man Chris Denney, themes on the record include, "Smokin', Drinkin', Cocaine, Youth, Rodeo Clowns, Fucking Around, Acquittal, The Blues, Family, Being Broke, Pain Pills, Hangovers, Hookers, Strength, Getting High, Addiction, Living, Dying..." Which of those come into play on LP cut "Bye Bye Queenie"? Have a listen and decide for yourself, the track makes its premiere in this post.
Denney & the Jets will be on tour this spring, hitting NYC on April 19 at Glasslands with their Burger buddies White Fang and Hector's Pets. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Love holiday music but sick of hearing "Christmas Wrapping," "All I Want for Christmas (is You)" and "Feliz Navidad"? Were you just thinking, "I wish there were more low-fi sleezoid punk and pop Christmas songs that occasionally feature references to weed?" Well the folks at Burger Records are here to help. They recently upped a mammoth, 75-track holiday mix. It features The Muffs, The Explorers Club, The Three O'Clock, Shannon & the Clams, Cleaners from Venus, Devon Williams, Pop Zeus, Idiot Glee, White Fang and (obviously) lots, lots more. The compilation kicks off with "Every Year So Different," a funky number from Cornershop featuring TRWBADOR that is pretty good and there are some other real gems in here too.

As mentioned, The Growlers are headlining the "Burgerama Caravan of All-Stars Tour" which hits NYC on October 5 at Bowery Ballroom with Cosmonauts, Gap Dream, and Together Pangea. The line-up has expanded since our first posting, and now also includes Brooklyn's Habibi, Portland scuzz-pop inhalers White Fang and LA's charming bedroom pop songwriter, Colleen Green. Tickets are still available.
Before that show, some of those bands -- Colleen Green and White Fang -- will play Death By Audio on October 2 with The Memories (who also play select Burgerama dates) and Hector's Pets also on the bill.
Speaking of the label and the venue, Burger is presenting a show at Death by Audio on October 18 with Fletcher C. Johnson, Tough Shits, Zig Zags, Habibi, Peach Kelli Pop and Dirty Fences. That's during CMJ but it's not an official show. It is, however, FREE.
All Burgerama and Colleen Green dates are listed, along with a Colleen Green video and White Fang stream, below.
