Shovels and Rope - O' Be Joyful

Feels Like: Justin Townes Earle, The Raconteurs' "Carolina Drama," Those Darlins

Had the pleasure of catching this Charleston, SC-based duo opening for Jonny Corndawg a little while back, and their excellent new album, O' Be Joyful has just been released.  The album seamlessly jumps from 50's rock and roll to stompbox blues to hearty Americana, all the while sounding expansive and meticulously crafted.  Nashvillians, you can catch them next Wednesday (9/12) at the Basement.
