Evans, Morgan - things that we drink to [2018]
Klasse U.S.-Debut des Australiers Morgan Evans, der drauf und dran ist in Nashville richtig Fuß zu fassen. Evans, in übrigen verheiratet mit der immens erfolgreichen Kelsea Ballerini, spielt eine überaus gefällige und voller Hitpotential steckende Mischung aus lockeren, gut zu verarbeitenden und sehr melodischen, mal dynamischen, mal langsameren Songs an der Schnittstelle zwischen New Country und Countrypop, die geradezu darauf warten die Charts zu stürmen. Enthält seinen ersten Nr.1-Hit, das flotte "Kiss somebody," und den neuen Hit "Day drunk". Natürlich darf auch ein Duett mit seiner Liebsten, Kelsea Ballerini, nicht fehlen ("Dance with me").

Hier ein Original U.K.-Review:

Morgan Evans captured the hearts of the UK when he released his lead single Kiss Somebody. With just a handful of songs out, Morgan has continued to build his UK fanbase with a couple of trips here including playing C2C Festival. Although we don’t often like to focus on an artists craft through their significant other, we can’t not mention Evan’s wife Kelsea Ballerini when she is so clearly the muse of most of his songs.
Morgan’s debut album Things That We Drink To starts with the song American, Evan’s seems to be describing his wife;
She’s got hair as gold as Kansas Wheat, her body moves like bourbon street in New Orleans, so wild and free She’s American, making my life better than it’s ever been.
American is a great start to the album and has that earlier Keith Urban style to it. This album is actually so much better than I thought it would be. With the title being Things That We Drink To I was somewhat afraid it was going to be a bunch of typical bro – country songs that sound just like all the other artists out there who sing about beer, trucks, dirt roads and women in little tight blue jeans or something. But this album has a lot more depth to it.
A lot of the songs are not just radio friendly but arena friendly and are definitely of the standard where you can imagine a huge arena concert and the music bouncing off the arena walls and everyone singing along.
Songs such as I Do are more mid tempo and in I Do’s case, is a love letter to his wife and well lets face it, us country fans are suckers for a real life country music love story.
Song for the Summer lost me a bit. I think it will prove popular amongst a lot of fans as has a great dance beat to it but it isn’t for me. It has an element of Sam Hunt in it and although I quite like Hunt, I just can’t seem to get into it.
Day Drunk which was another single is a great summer anthem song but again, neither here nor there for me sadly.
Kelsea Ballerini joins Morgan for Dance With Me for a stunning ballad. This is a gorgeous romantic country song as it should be. There is beauty in its simplicity and it isn’t over produced. The words are of course believable as they are true. Kelsea may not like love songs but Morgan clearly does and we are so glad about that or we wouldn’t have this song. I would be very surprised if this doesn’t get released as a single.
Me on You has a bit of an R&B element to it. It has a sweet guitar riff throughout and a nice beat to it. Although I am not keen on the clubby dance element to country music, this song can easily have that vibe but would also be amazing stripped back.
The title track Things That We Drink To, is thankfully not your typical drinking song but a breathtaking dedication to a friend of Morgans, his late manager who sadly passed. (More on that can be found here. ) This song has a strong anthem feel to it and its down tempo stylings are really quite infectious especially in the piano accompaniment. The emotion in Morgan’s vocals, lyrics and music is honest and quite deep. I like a song with meaning, a song where you can actually feel where the artist is coming from and what they a feeling on some level. The subject was obviously someone very dear to Morgan and the song is both happy and sad at the same time with the feeling of loss but also great memories and celebration of friendship. I think the songs music and words encompasses all of that and I would certainly drink to that.
We Dream is about those childhood dreams and childhood freedom. It is a good song but might be one that takes me a while. I sadly feel the same way about Everything Changes. Both aren’t bad tracks but may take a listen or two.
Young Again is a great song to close the album on. It has a Folk music way about it and is like an Irish drinking song and I enjoy those type of drinking songs as they feel a lot more happy and are the kind of songs that bring unity. I can see this song being one of those live songs that make people in the crowd all sway arm and arm whilst of course, raising glasses.
Overall this is a quality, celebratory album that certainly has that “Let’s raise our glasses” feel to it. Things That We Drink To has a lot of fun and thoroughly enjoyable songs.
There is a really bright future for Morgan Evans and he is definitely on his way up to being one of the big names and I am actually really excited about it. If he continues to deliver music similar to what he has now then I am more than happy for him to sit up there on the top of the charts. (Hnnah Jessica / Building Our Own Nashville)

Micky and The Motorcars - raise my glass [2011]
Baumstarkes, neues Album der texanischen "Red Dirt" Vorzeige-Countryrocker: Locker, dennoch knackig und herrlich "gritty", dabei traumhaft melodisch. Ein absoluter Countryrock-Leckerbissen, der zuweilen sogar Erinnerungen an die goldene Siebziger Countryrock-Ära weckt. Ein neuer Höhepunkt unter den bisherigen Veröffentlichungen der Band um die Braun-Brüder Micky und Gary, den Geschwistern der anderen beiden Brauns, Willy und Cody, die bei Reckless Kelly den Ton angeben. Trotz des vollendeten Ohrwurm-Charakters weht durch alle Songs dieser einzigartige, trockene "Red Dirt-Staub. Wunderbar!

My Dynamite - same [2012]
"Rock'n Roll will never die"! Grandioses, junges Quintett aus Melbourne (Australien) mit einem geradezu überragenden Debut! Tief verwurzelt in den Siebzigern und mit einem Hauch von Southern Rock spielen sie genauso unbekümmert, dreckig und ungeschliffen auf, wie The Black Crowes zu ihren Anfangszeiten - voller Energie, dynamisch, erdig, kraftvoll, dabei aber auch ungemein frisch und voller Leidenschaft. Das Songmaterial ist saustark - ohne jeden Ausfall! Trotz des rauen Feelings und trotz der Kraft klingt die Band zuweilen auch herrlich locker und sehr, sehr melodisch. Die Songs bleiben prächtig hängen, der Funke springt sofort über. 2 tolle Lead Gitarristen, die sich ständig gegenseitig "anstacheln", eine tighte, großartige Rhytmussektion und ein fantastischer Sänger, der sich nicht im Geringsten hinter Chris Robinson zu verstecken braucht. Die Band hat alles, was es für klassische, unverfälschte (Gitarren) Rockmusik mit ein wenig Bluesrock- und Southern Rock-Flair braucht. Klasse auch der zeitweise wunderbar ausgerollte Orgelteppich, der den straighten Gitarrensound erstklassig ergänzt. Neben The Black Crowes, die in der Musik von My Dynamite, obwohl die Australier eine ganz klare, eigene Identität haben, stets ihre Spuren hinterlassen, hört man auch noch Einflüsse der Rolling Stones, der Faces und von Humble Pie. Das ist erfrischender, zeitgemässer, purer Old School Guitar Boogie Rock'n Roll der Güteklasse A! Solche Bands braucht die globale Rock-Welt, dann braucht einem wirklich nicht bange um unsere geliebte Musik zu sein. Das Zeug rockt und rollt aus unseren Lautsprechern wie ein "freight train" durch den amerikanischen Süden! Eine wahre Pracht!

Secret Sisters, The - you don't own me anymore [2017]
Großartiges, neues Album von Lydia and Laura Rogers aus dem US-Bundesstaat Alabama, aka The Secret Sisters, die, ausgestattet mit fantastischen Stimmen (hinreissender Harmonie-Gesang), erneut einen geradezu magischen Mix aus Folk, Country, Bluegrass, Gospel, Roots und Americana präsentieren. Songs wie etwa der folkig swingende Opener"Tennessee river runs low", das auf einem dem früheren Neil Young ähnelnden Groove basierende, auch ein wenig an The Band erinnernde "Mississippi", die erneut folkig agehauchten Americana-Nummern "Carry me" und "'Til it's over", das mit dem Material der jungen Emmylou Harris vergleichbare, wunderschöne "He's fine", das grassige "King Cotton", oder der herrliche, traditionelle Country-Waltz "Little again" zeigen eindrucksvoll, über welch außergeöhnliches, vielseitiges musikalisches Gespür die beiden und ihre exzellenten Begleitmusiker verfügen. Zum Genießen!

Hier ein Original U.S.-Review:

The Secret Sisters, much like the characters in some of their songs, know a thing or two about surviving. After a meteoric debut in 2010 shepherded by the likes of Dave Cobb and T Bone Burnett and heaps of praise for both their self-titled, cover-heavy album and their live shows, they found themselves dropped by their label, set adrift in a management change, and embroiled in a lawsuit. Ultimately, the sisters – Lydia and Laura Rogers – had to file personal bankruptcy. They went from opening shows for Bob Dylan and Paul Simon to cleaning houses to make ends meet. That’s a pretty tough spot from which to think about new music, but amid all the chaos, new songs were brewing. A nudge from Brandi Carlile (who ended up producing, along with her bandmates the Hanseroth twins) and a successful crowdfunding campaign brought You Don’t Own Me Anymore to life.
And what a vivid, beating-heart life it is. It’s hard to put this album on as background music when the characters reach out so openly, the music spills out so energetically, and the harmonies pull heartstrings so earnestly. Listen, each song compels, and learn something. Or at least feel something – and it seems nearly the whole range of human emotion is represented here, as realistically as a phone call from a friend or the pages of a diary.
Opening track “Tennessee River Runs Low” (check it out in the video below) is a delightfully retro-sounding declaration of intent – a statement that the Sisters are back and ready for whatever life might wish to dish out. And what follows is equally compelling and just plain great to listen to. “He’s Fine” captures with aching realism the heartbreak of being alone after the one you love ends up loving someone else, and “To All the Girls Who Cry” is a warm hug and a glass of wine to all sisters who are hurting. Title track “You Don’t Own Me Anymore” is simultaneously lovely and dark in sound, a chronicle of the process of standing up after being knocked down. It’s an entirely new take on an age-old theme – something the Secret Sisters prove on this album they excel at.
The sisters’ soaring harmonies sound like a letter found in a closet, nostalgic and classic – yet utterly modern as applied to songs that capture life in our own time. On You Don’t Own Me Anymore, the Secret Sisters have found their sound, and appear utterly at home and here to stay.
