A powerhouse of R&B revival, with touches of golden era rock, boogie and subtle hints of country mixed in.”

Central Track

Kristy Kruger is a musical time traveler gripped by stylistic wanderlust. Her curiosity leads her to unpredictable explorations, placing aesthetic bets that her intelligence, talent and immense personal charm take straight to the bank. Each song is a wonder and a delight.

The Rolling Stone

Joshua Ray Walker knew how to keep you guessing during his set at Rustic Tap on Saturday, rolling along to the rhythm of an 18-wheeler one minute and shifting into neutral for a loping bedroom ballad the next. The constant throughout for this country-tinged songwriter was his inexorable sense of storytelling, singing parables of self-reflection — and, oftentimes, evisceration — that were tortured by what his narrators could write in a song but couldn’t say in person. Punctuating his haunting arrangements with even eerier high-pitched yelps, Walker finished things off, alone and seated in a chair, with the bold imagery of “Canyon.” J.G.

The 40 Acre Mule was amazing... the perfect mix of blues-influenced rock and roll with a Texas swing. Can’t wait to hear more from this unique band.

Audio Dallas

The songs on the album, The Immaculates, were written and partially recorded over a number of years by Longhorse. The album is resolutely low-fi: According to Longhorse, a lot of the guitar and vocal tracks were recorded in his kitchen. With his renewed focus, he pulled Prickett and Wakefield in to complete the recordings. The album fully captures the diversity of musical styles and ideas that have held his attention over his fifty years of playing. Bottleneck blues, circus polkas, Waits-style ballads, it’s all there — the ideas finally given the life immortal of a release.
