Bloodshot's Year In Review

Whew! 2018 is winding down, and it's been a packed release year with new albums from rock-n-roll legends, label rookies from across the world, and returning Bloodshot stalwarts. We're starting to look onward to 2019, which will mark Bloodshot's 25th anniversary!

Here's a brief look back at Bloodshot's releases from 2018.

RUBY BOOTS - Don't Talk About It

Released: February 7, 2018

"Boots is of the opinion that the Old West's lyrical tropes - heartbreak, longing, not-needing-no-man - sound better riding weapons-grade guitar fuzz and muscular drums than tired honky-tonk." - Pandora


-

BARRENCE WHITFIELD AND THE SAVAGES - Soul Flowers of Titan

SFOT-LP-Cover_1.jpg

Released: March 2, 2018

"The album is of the highest order with songs that make you want to rip off your clothes and go screeching across the dance floor. It's music you would expect to hear in low-down dirty dives, in the area of town your mother told you to stay away from." - Louder Than War

-

SARAH SHOOK & THE DISARMERS - Years

BS259_Years_cover_1800_1.jpg

Released: April 6, 2018

"An expert distillation of Shook's talents: sly wordplay, gritty arrangements, and vocals that find the sweet spot between country and punk." - Rolling Stone

-

LUKE WINSLOW-KING - Blue Mesa

Released: May 11, 2018

"A mixture of juke joint jump and Keb Mo'-ish cool. Blue Mesa is Winslow-King redefining the blues for his generation." - T-Bones Records

-

ROBBIE FULKS & LINDA GAIL LEWIS - Wild! Wild! Wild!

Released: August 10, 2018

"A carefully conceived lark. It's loose and, yes, wild, but it's also very witty and shrewd." - NPR Fresh Air

-

MURDER BY DEATH - The Other Shore

Murder By Death - The Other Shore - Album Cover Art_1.JPG

Released: August 24, 2018

"Challenges the preconception that Pink Floyd, David Bowie and Richard Strauss are what's usually playing in outer space . . . If Joss Whedon ever gets around to doing another season of Firefly or a sequel to Serenity, Murder By Death would be a shoo-in for the house band at the cantina and a few songs on the soundtrack." - Associated Press

-

WILLIAM ELLIOTT WHITMORE - Kilonova

BS265_Cover_1800_1.jpg

Released: September 7, 2018

"There's pain, hard-earned wisdom, and realism in Whitmore's voice and it's almost as if these songs were guiding posts along the way, or, one could think of them as scars or tattoos - songs that left an indelible impression." - Glide Magazine

-

THE BOTTLE ROCKETS - Bit Logic

Release: October 12, 2018

"A roots rocker made for anyone who finds their head spinning over our society's obsession with social media and technology's advance into do-it-all virtual assistants." - Wide Open Country

-

LAURA JANE GRACE & THE DEVOURING MOTHERS - Bought to Rot

BS269_digital_cover_1.jpg

Release: November 9, 2018

"Bought to Rot ranges from screaming blasts of punk to poppier tracks reminiscent of Ted Leo's propulsive tunes to fuzzy, gritty rock that picks up where The Strokes left off on Is This It." - The New York Times

-

Thank you for your support in 2018 and beyond! In 2019, be on the lookout for new releases coming from Vandoliers, The Yawpers, Lydia Loveless, plus special releases and events celebrating Bloodshot Records' 25th anniversary.
