We haven’t had a January run this great since… ever? Referring strictly to GTG Records here but… there are signs elsewhere too! Today we’ve got a new long-player out from the best Detroit power-trio-founded-by-a-yooper-whiskey-drinkin-with-a-smile-rock-and-roll-band in all the land – Candy Coated Cannonball by Jeremy Porter and The Tucos! Stream/download and order it on vinyl and CD here.
This is an eleven song slab of the kind of righteous rock and roll that we all desperately need right now. Great riffs, catchy choruses, simultaneously slacker-y and polished, hints of Americana, Cheap Trick moments, Lemonheads echoes, literal references to both Minutemen and Big Star… sign me up! Pick up the record, pore over the notes, and memorize these songs cuz as soon as it’s safe these guys are gonna be on the road to save rock and roll, again! Check out the lyric video with behind-the-scenes footage for lead single “Dead Ringer” below!
