Eloranta Esa & Marko Haavisto - Kymmenen miljoonaa (LP)€29,90
Marko Haavisto ja Esa Eloranta olivat syksyllä 2018 samalla keikalla Sallassa. Keikan jälkeen keskustelu johti Pelle Miljoonaan. Yllätyksekseen molemmat huomasivat Pellen äärimmäisen suuren merkityksen omiin nuoruusvuosiinsa. Samana iltana lausuttiin alkusanat Kymmenen miljoonaa -albumille. Tässä vaiheessa viereisessä pöydässä istunut Janne Haavisto ilmoitti liittyvänsä mukaan. Tosiaan siis sananmukaisesti ilmoitti, ei kysellyt. Lopulta Miljoonan markan kvartetin täydensi vielä Olli Haavisto. Ettei asiat jäisi puheen asteelle, niin loppuvuodesta 2021 E-Studiolla taltioitiin 10 Pelle Miljoona -klassikkoa, joista ensimmäinen Mulla menee lujaa julkaistiin singlenä 18.2.2022 ja toinen Moottoritie on kuuma julkaistaan 6.5.2022.
Alkuaskeleista asti onnellisten tähtien alla seilannut tribuuttihanke sai virallisen siunauksensa, kun itse Pelle Miljoona vierailee mukana kahdella raidalla.
Old Crow Medicine Show - Paint This Town (Ltd) (LP)€32,50
On Paint This Town, Old Crow Medicine Show offers a riveting glimpse into American mythology and the wildly colorful characters who populate it. Co-produced by OCMS and Matt Ross-Spang, the album pays homage to everyone from Elvis Presley to Eudora Welty while shedding a bright light on the darker aspects of the country’s legacy.

Huojuva Lato - Utopia, Texas (LP)€27,50
Pohjois-Karjalan härmäkantriylpeys Huojuva lato käytti koronatalven 2021-2022 hyväksi tekemällä uuden pitkäsoiton jolla kuullaan kantria eri muodoissaan. Levyn avaava Pyhä Severi rokkaa Wilcon ja Son Voltin tyyliin. Waylon Jenningsin ja Don Williamsin 70-luvun jättihitistä Amandasta on valmistunut uusi käännös Manta. Radiolaulu on suomennos Doug Dillardin & Gene Clarkin 60-lukuisesta unohtuneesta countryrock-helmestä The Radio Song.
Kaukaisiin saariin -kappaleella Huojuva lato yhdistää suomirockiin John Mellencamp -vaikutteita ja päätösraita Tie päättyy meren rannalle on suorastaan kantriprogea neljine alaosineen. Myös folk-vaikutteet kuuluvat vahvasti. ”Ehkä tämä asenne tulee esikuviltamme ja ystäviltämme Freukkareilta, jotka olivat valmiita kokeilemaan vaikka mitä tyylejä ja leikkimään niillä”, arvelee bändin nokkamies Suonna Kononen.

Fortune Favors The Bold is not only a record that showcases the current state of 49 Winchester, it’s a melodic stake in the ground of how this group is constantly evolving and taking shape, sonically and lyrically. But, it’s also about looking into the rearview mirror with a genuine appreciation for where you came from and what you’re made of. Those salt-of-the-earth traits in your blood and character that define what it actually takes to climb that damn mountain of dreams. At its essence, Fortune Favors The Bold is about going against all odds to bring your art into fruition and into the world – come hell or high water.

Leigh Brennen - Obsessed With The West (Feat. ASleep At the Wheel) (LP)€35,00
’I’ve been obsessed with western swing since I was a kid, and it’s always been an influence, but my records in the past have ranged from bluegrass to hard country to folk, So I’ve never fully explored it.’ So says genre-busting Fargo-born, Austin- incubated, Nashville resident Brennen Leigh, whose new collaboration with the kings of modern-day western swing, Asleep at the Wheel, Obsessed With The West, is a showcase not just for the Bob Wills fans, but for anyone who’s ever curled up with Loretta Lynn, Hank Sr., Cindy Walker, Billie Holiday, or Willie Nelson. On twelve all original songs, Leigh’s supple winking voice and multi-instrument fluency, her interplay with Ray Benson, and the undeniable chops of the Wheel serve up a treat on Leigh’s seventh album. With cameos from Emily Gimble and Katie Shore, and all the players getting their moments in the sun, Leigh – a two-time winner of the Texas Music Awards Best Female Vocalist award – demonstrates on the terrific jump 40’s rhythm and blues, ’Comin’ in Hot’ and the lonesome cowboy musing of ’Riding Off Onto Sunset Boulevard’ why Rodney Crowell and Lee Ann Womack have recorded her songs. Obsessed With The West is a celebration of music for music’s sake in 2022, not just an exercise in looking back on times gone by.
Quinn David - Country Fresh (LP)€35,00
nspired by an old ashtray he found in a Nashville emporium, inscribed with a label that read “Country Fresh”, David Quinn found the impetus to sum up his feelings about the grandeur of America’s vast heartland.
Having left his Midwestern environs to live in the country and isolate himself at the peak of the pandemic, he allowed nostalgia to take hold and reconnect him with the muse he was motivated by initially. A purveyor of a sound fondly referred to as “Black Dirt country music”, he created songs seeped in everyday circumstance, shared from the perspective of those who experience life’s highs and lows through both discovery and desire.
Country Fresh reaffirms Quinn’s uncompromising everyman attitude. While some tend to compare him to John Prine — after all, both were born in Chicago and each tends to take the same approach to humor and happenstance — Quinn tends to fall prey to disappointment and despair more frequently.
He surveys the path forward with dire circumspect on the aching ballad ‘Long Road’ and shares his search for satisfaction with ‘I Just Want to Feel Alright’, shading the songs with a vulnerability that often verges on despair. Indeed, honesty is essential here, giving Quinn a well-rounded appeal that makes any challenge as pertinent as his triumphs.
That said, Quinn is mostly a celebratory sort. The rousing refrains that soar through the title track, the double time tempo of ‘Low Down’ and the effusive enthusiasm he shares in both ‘Boy From Illinois’ and ‘Heartland’ — two obvious odes to his original environs — make his contentment clear.
Likewise, the upbeat appeal of ‘Cornbread and Chili’ and the steady stomp of ‘Grassy Trails’ assert a certain satisfaction in the life he’s been destined to lead. That’s never more evident than in the ebullient strains of ‘Easy Life the Breeze,’ a song flush with the joys of a life spurred by desire and determination. So too, when he shares a story about his grandfather, the man that inspired him to follow his dreams, with the album’s final entry, ‘Hummingbird’s Song’, the listener is left with a clear understanding of Quinn’s essential early inspiration.
Quinn enlists an exceptional group of musicians to complete his task, among them Nashville veteran Fats Kaplan, a player who takes the lead in several of these songs. Kaplan’s versatility on fiddle, banjo and dobro adds extra illumination to many of these melodies, and in so doing, underscores the ebullience and exuberance shared throughout. Quinn himself is a decidedly understated singer, his matter-of-fact delivery ensuring that the scenarios he sings about state a case, sans posturing or pretense.
Ultimately, that makes Country Fresh a more nuanced narrative, one that’s both revelatory and revealing in its tone and temperament. So, while the comparisons to certain rugged forebears may seem inevitable, it’s a pretty good bet that Mr. Prine would be proud.

Cauthen Paul - Country Coming Down (Indie, exlusive Color) (LP)€29,90
2022 release. Cauthen first earned his reputation as a fire-breathing truth-teller with the acclaimed roots rock band Sons of Fathers, but it wasn’t until the 2016 release of his solo debut, My Gospel, that he truly tapped into the full depth of his prodigious talents. Vice Noisey dubbed it ”a somber reminder of how lucky we are to be alive,” while Texas Monthly raved that Cauthen ”sound[s] like the Highwaymen all rolled into one: he’s got Willie’s phrasing, Johnny’s haggard quiver, Kristofferson’s knack for storytelling, and Waylon’s baritone.” Two albums and 6 years down the road, Paul will be releasing the highly anticipated new studio album titled ’Country Coming Down’, due for release on April 1st, 2022 via Paul’s own Velvet Rose Records in collaboration with Thirty Tigers. Produced by Paul, Jason Burt and Beau Bedford, this new collection of tracks is packed with attitude and attention to detail, and will surely reinforce Paul’s staying power as a musician and songwriter.
Hedley Joshua - Neon Blue (Coke Bottle Clear) (LP)€29,50
Vuoden odotetuin kantri albumi. Eka levy oli vuoden 2018 paras kantri albumi.
Release Date: April 22, 2022 / 22.Huhtikuu 2022. THIS ONE IS INDIE EXCLUSIVE VINYL ”COKE BOTTLE CLEAR”
Joshua Hedley is “a singing professor of country & western,” he declares on his raucous and witty new album, Neon Blue. It might sound like a punchline, but it’s not. An ace fiddle player, a sharp guitarist, and a singer with a granite twang, he’s devoted his entire life to the study of this genre. Ask him about it and he’ll explain: “When all my friends went off to college, I went to Nashville. I was 19 years old playing honkytonks and getting an education.” His 2018 debut, Mr. Jukebox, showcased his deep knowledge of country’s history, in particular the beery ballads of the 1950s and ‘60s. His mentors were George Jones, Ray Price, and Glen Campbell, but his most remarkable accomplishment was putting his own spin on their style.
Neon Blue, on the other hand, examines a very different, often forsaken era: the early 1990s. “The last bastion of country music,” says the professor, “was the early 1990s, roughly 1989 and 1996. You could turn on the radio and immediately know you’re hearing a country song. You could still hear steel guitar and fiddle. But there was a hard fork around 1996 or ’97, when country veered off into pop territory. Neon Blue asks, What if that fork had never happened? What if country kept on sounding like country?”
That era may have been dismissed by traditionalists at the time as slick or overproduced, but Hedley finds something exciting in that old hat-act sound, and Neon Blue plays up the excitement of bigger-than-life choruses, the relatable emotions of those sad-eyed ballads, and the inventiveness of the lively production. “The sound is modern,” he says, “but it’s still discernibly country.”
