Possum Jenkins, “Beside The Pines”

A healthy North Carolina twang runs through the music of Possum Jenkins, a quintet whose members hail from Winston-Salem and Boone, and who play a gritty version of barroom honky-tonk (or, you might say, a countrified version of hillbilly rock ‘n roll). However you categorize it, the music is heady, thick, tasty, and will keep you howling long into the night.

As much as we loved the songs we gave away this week from Seeker Lover Keeper and AVAN LAVA, it’s been the category called country that took our ears for a ride this week. From Hawks in L.A. to friends on the Front Porch, this week’s been all about the twang.

Proud Simon, “Anchors Aweigh”

Proud Simon‘s “Anchors Aweigh” is one of those songs that has the big ambition of Nashville country, the street savvy of New York pop and the breeze-through-the-trees folk of a day next to the ocean.

Drive By Truckers, “Used To Be A Cop”

What do you get when you combine about a billion cool bands with warm weather and a long weekend? For us, it equals a wish for a plane ticket to Orlando and a couch that we can crash on.

Mark McKinney, “Comfortable in This Skin”

Big Springs, Texas native Mark McKinney writes high-energy country songs with a big rock beat that you’ll want to crank up loud on Friday night. And then probably again on Saturday night, too. “Comfortable in This Skin” is from McKinney’s debut album Get It On, which is, in his own words, “a journey through the mind of a Southern man.”

Riley, Grandma's Roadhouse, Gary Stewart

(L-R) Riley Watkins, Jim Snead, Gary Stewart

The late Gary Stewart was a true-blue country artist, the nasal-twanged voice behind “Single Again,” “She’s Acting Single (And I’m Drinking Doubles),” and other hardcore honky-tonk gems. Before he grabbed Nashville’s attention with those whiskey-soaked beauties, though, he earned early chops as a member of upstart country-rock band Riley, named after the band’s leader, Riley Watkins. Riley released just one under-the-radar album, Grandma’s Roadhouse, in 1971, which has since been unearthed and reissued by Delmore Recordings.
