The Texas Gentlemen
Pop on Floor It!!!, the new and second full-length effort from the Texas Gentlemen, and prepare your eardrums to be hit with everything from woozy, brass-fueled Dixieland-style jazz (“Veal Cutlass”), to slinky, chicken-scratch country funk (“Bare Maximum”) to lushly orchestrated pop-soul balladry (“Ain’t Nothin’ New”)—and that’s all in just the first 10 minutes of play time.
While the Gentlemen’s sound is clearly steeped in the classic roots, rock and pop music of the ‘60s and ‘70s, there’s a dreamy (the lilting “Sing Me to Sleep”), spacey (“Skyway Streetcar”) and occasionally progressive (“Dark at the End of the Tunnel”) element to what they do that seems to detach the music from belonging to any particular place and time. Add in elements of funk, soul, country, r&b, southern rock, gospel and essentially any other style that catches their musically omnivorous ears; an expansive and detailed approach to arrangement that sees the songs adorned with all manner of horns, strings and heavenly background vocals (“Hard Road”) and you have a collection of tunes that is more than just a mere album. Rather, Floor It!!! is a rich and righteous ride.
Kind Hearted Strangers
Hailing from all corners of the country, Kind Hearted Strangers began as an impromptu open mic performance when Marc Townes (Virginia) met Brian Ireland (California) in Boulder, CO. They quickly joined forces with Kevin Hinder (Maryland) and Marshall Carlson (Iowa) to become a full band capable of bridging the gap between all out rock n’ roll and their harmony-driven acoustic roots.
Their debut record “East // West” (2021) digs into the places they’ve come from and explores the places they’re going to, with a diverse sound that reflects the broad influences each member brings to the band.
Recorded in Denver, CO by Todd Divel of Silo Sound, mixed in Richmond, VA by Adrian Olsen of Montrose Recording, and mastered in Seattle, WA by Ed Brooks of Resonant Mastering - the album shares a wide-ranging influence and perspective on the relationships we have with one another and the places we call home.
