CHURCHWOOD: Plenty to Go Awry: CD

Long-running Austin, Texas band back with their first full length since 2016. Some damn good swamp rock that owes as much to Simon Stokes and as it does to The Gun Club. Given that Stokes is one of my favorite artists of all time, I love this record and it might be the best thing in that style I’ve heard in a decade or more. The band has a member of Big Foot Chester/Poison 13, and fortunately that means having been at this style for a long damn time, they’re getting better with age. If you’re at all a fan of weirdo blues and swamp-style rock, this will scratch your itch. –Mike Frame (Saustex)
