The Goddamn Rattlesnake

Alt-country isn’t exactly your first thought when I say the words “Deathwish” and “Acid Tiger“, but J. Rattlesnake of said Brooklyn band straddles both worlds with The Goddamn Rattlesnake. The country-inflected band welcomed its LP Stay Sweet on the first day of the new year and it features sole member J. Rattlesnake on vocals, guitar, banjo and percussion, amongst a gang of contributors. The Goddamn Rattlesnake channels classic country over tracks like the sunny “Drinking On My Mind”, “Born By The Sea”, and “Slow Down Romeo” which you can download above.

Check out The Goddamn Rattlesnake’s Stay Sweet streaming in full below. Head to his Bandcamp to snag a copy.

Make sure and get to The Bell House early on Saturday (1/15) because The Goddamn Rattlesnake will be on hand to support O’Death and Tim Fite. Tickets are still available

The Brooklyn show is a one off for O’Death, but the local band has already planned a much larger tour after a trek to SXSW; look for them to end that tour with another Brooklyn show on 4/15 (venue TBA). All dates are listed below.

O’Death is plotting a new LP for Spring 2011. Details soon, though Kemado – the label who released their last album, currently lists them under “alumni”.

The Bell House is a also a one-off show for Tim Fite. Fite’s latest LP, Under The Table Tennis, is still available for free download.
