New Video: Justin Townes Earle – Time Shows Fools

Justin Townes Earle has experienced more than most, both personally and professionally. Between releasing four full-length-critically-acclaimed albums, constant touring, multiple stints in rehab, a new found sobriety, being born Steve Earle’s son, amicable and not-so-amicable break-ups with record labels, and facing the trials and tribulations of everyday life, it’s safe to say he has quite the story to tell. His fifth album, Single Mothers serves as the perfect platform for such narrations.

It is a proper country music record. Watch the video for Time Shows Fools from it below.

Mighty Oaks – Brother

Mighty Oaks - Brother

Three-part vocal harmonies, acoustic guitars, and mandolins are the core of Mighty Oaks songs. Smooth bass lines and simple drums are the heartbeat of its sound with driving electric guitars adding depth as front-man Ian Hooper layers lyrics both melancholy and hopeful atop rustic refrains that call to mind the Pacific Northwest of the Seattle native’s birthplace.

Stream/download the band’s debut single Brother.

MM Shorts 601: Elijah Ocean

Finish the weekend by submerging yourself in the lovely, warm Americana of Elijah Ocean’s Ride It Out, a sweetly evocative and plaintive track that recalls such luminaries as Neil Young, Gram Parsons and The Band.

It is taken from his forthcoming album Bring It All In, released on October 8th via New Wheel.
