So I have quite a few recordsContinue reading “Spring Roundup – Part 1”

Available this week on CD and vinyl through Halfshell Records, this five-song release features the band exploring more folk-centric zones and mystical atmospheres. The sound is a logical progression fromContinue reading “Weeed – Green Roses Vol. 1”

What Does Optimism Look Like? — A Conversation with Jerry David DeCicca

Last fall, Jerry David DeCicca delivered a country-kissed jewel of a folk rock record that celebrated the melancholia and quiet joys in life. The Unlikely Optimist & His Domestic Adventures is colored by subtle emotions and the sharpness of unflinching reality, while sonically, it’s a melting pot of Texas’ diverse musical heritage. Throughout the album’sContinue reading “What Does Optimism Look Like? — A Conversation with Jerry David DeCicca”
