Chicago punk-bluegrass singer Al Scorch releasing a new album on Bloodshot (stream “Lost At Sea”)

Chicago singer/songwriter Al Scorch has a sound influenced by old timey country and bluegrass but also raw driving punk. It sometimes sounds like a more bluegrass version of Neutral Milk Hotel, a comparison that makes even more sense when you consider Al frequently collaborates with Laura Carter, who's toured as a member of NMH. His new album Circle Round the Signs comes out May 13 via Bloodshot (pre-order), and we're premiering its newest single "Lost At Sea."

New Orleans band The Deslondes make country music you can dance to, but not in the way most of the artists the radio today do. They sound like they could've been the house band at a Southern bar 60 years ago, way before any country singer ever wrote a song about Miller L...
