The Year In Bloodshot Records

Bloodshot Records has always been the preferred label of the Beachwood Reporter, so it's with great pleasure that we bring you this Bloodshot press release with Beachwood added value.

ANDRE WILLIAMS
Hoods and Shades
Released: February 28, 2012
image001.jpg

"Rockabilly, psychedelic funk and twisted, swampy soul/blues combine with Williams' salty, baritone vocals for a riveting collection that's a wonderful example of music made for the love of it by a been there/done that journeyman arguably just reaching his prime." - American Songwriter

Sample: A Good Day To Feel Bad


-

JUSTIN TOWNES EARLE
Nothing's Gonna Change The Way You Feel About Me Now
Released: March 27, 2012
image002.jpg

"The most effective singer/songwriters strip themselves naked, confess flaws and desires, perhaps ask for forgiveness or remain stubborn. Justin Townes Earle unflinchingly displays all of these behaviors on his superb fourth album . . . With just 10 tracks, the album yields only a brief glimpse of the singer's troubled soul, yet leaves you wanting more." - USA Today

Sample: Nothing's Gonna Change The Way You Feel About Me Now.

-

THE WACO BROTHERS AND PAUL BURCH
Great Chicago Fire
Released: April 24, 2012
image003.jpg

"A bracing, wickedly smart album that draws on the strengths of both acts . . . If the Rolling Stones were still making great records, this would be it." - Chicago Tribune

Sample: Great Chicago Fire

-

CORY BRANAN
Mutt
Released: May 22, 2012
image004.jpg

"Few songwriters sum up the contradictions of beery romance - of bad men drinking in barrooms, of heartbreakers darkening your door - with quite as much grit, wit and compassion as Branan, who can turn a phrase on a dime." - Paste

Sample: The Snowman

-

FIREWATER
International Orange!
Released: September 11, 2012
image005.jpg

"Mr. A's an excellent singer and a masterful arranger, and the songs found here are jaunty, upbeat, and occasionally funny. But don't feel too comfortable; the happy feelings cover up a dark, dark heart." - The Big Takeover

Sample: A Little Revolution

-

MURDER BY DEATH
Bitter Drink, Bitter Moon
Released: September 25, 2012
image006.jpg

"Put simply, Bitter Drink, Bitter Moon is Murder by Death's most beautiful album to date. It is a robust record brimming with all the qualities we love about the band while taking the music in a new direction. This is a band that has somehow managed to fly just under the radar of most, but if there was ever an album to put them on the map, it's this one." - Paste

Sample: Lost River

-

ROSIE FLORES
Working Girl's Guitar
Released: October 16, 2012
image007.jpg

"Flores picks up a storm all over Working Girl's Guitar, and though she's tasteful enough not to let her solos get in the way of her songs, when she feels like tearing up the fretboard, her chops are just as impressive as her melodic smarts, and she can strut her stuff on tunes that lean toward country, rock & roll, surf, vintage R&B or rockabilly ('Too Much') and sound equally at home and fully in command." - Allmusic.com

Sample: Working Girl's Guitar
