Pew Playlist: 3 Albums That Should Be On Your Radar, 4/7/17

Craig Brown Band–The Lucky Ones Forget

Detroit’s Craig Brown released his debut full-length via Third Man Records (SWOON), and it’s a countrified hum-dinger. Equal parts honky-tonk hillbilly and dive bar derelict, Brown has crafted a rock and pedal steel-infused collection of barroom punkicana that will surely delight showgoers of all ages.

The Company Stores–Little Lights

Electrified folk mixed with shades of blue, bright horns, and a touch of funk yields one groovy album, y’all. The Company Stores‘ Little Lights features the sultry sassitude of frontwoman Casey Litz against a fiery backdrop of musicality that begs for a festival-sized stage and a whole lot of sunshine. It’s punchy, it’s poignant, and it’s perfect.


Matt Record–Black Swan EP

This week we’re getting our folkicana fix from Indiana’s Matt Record–its heartland-inspired tracks evoke dynamic images of small towns, lost loves, and troubled times, his honest delivery a refreshing ring in the ears. He calls it “micro country,” we call it mighty fine.
