Mad Mackerel Recommends…Amanda Jo Williams

Mad Mackerel Recommends...Amanda Jo Williams.

Amanda Jo Williams latest offering, The Bear Eats Me, is chock full of catchy rockabilly band numbers, with multi-layered recordings featuring cherubic choruses and good ol’ honky tonk. It’s dusty jukebox rock that will wake the kids in the middle of the night for a boot-stomping, moon-invoking dance party on the back porch.

Comparisons? Try Hank Williams Jr., Joanna Newsome, Melanie or June CarterLucinda Williams as well. But that’s not all, there is a surreal taste to the album, something quirky and off-kilter. Add Devendra Banhart to the list and you’ll be getting somewhere in the vast musical playground that Amanda Jo Williams inhabits.

The Bear Eats Me is released on Neurotic Yell Records, June 19th. Grab the title track now.
