With being one of the greatest soul rock bands (being biased here, but seriously!), Alabama-natives St.Paul & The Broken Bones have been on the rise since 2014. Their latest album, “Young Sick Camellia”, has definitely tested the band with bringing blues, soul, and a little southern rock to their sound. St.Paul will also be playing at Hinterland Music Festival in St.Charles, IA next week! I had the chance to chat with Paul Janeway, the lead vocalist and frontman of the band.
Girl with Basket of Fruit, released February 8th, 2019, is a fairly contemporary release by Xiu Xiu’s standards. By normal standards, it is 36 minutes of aural whiplash, violently jerking the listener around with periodic interludes of spoken word ballads before tearing off once more into a pounding, glitchy beat.
