Here are the adds to rotation for October 20, 2014
The New American Farmers - The Farmacology Sessions
The Farmacology Sessions by The New American Farmers duo Nicole Storto and Paul Knowles offers up some relaxed, loose, open-field music festival friendly tracks. Just the right amount of twang and americana interwoven with a tinge of hippie. They get help from Kevin T White, Dave Zirbel, and Tony Sales to flesh out the sound and give it a lush summer day feel. There's also a guest appearances by Chuck Prophet.

Ronnie Fauss - Built To Break
Built To Break by Ronnie Fauss is a great example of what’s going on in Texas rock these days. The twang is still there, but the kitsch has been stripped away to let that everyday slice of life drive the songs. The music always has a driving energy that sounds good driving down the road. The songs ring so true you want to sing along. It’s rock and roll for real people with real lives in the real world.
I’m adding “Another Town,” “Eighteen Wheels (featuring Rhett Miller),” “I’m Sorry Baby (That’s Just The Way It Goes),” and my personal favorite “Old Life” to rotation.

Jason McIntyre & Junior Tutwiler
Miles is the latest effort from the duo Jason “Jmac” McIntyre & Junior Tutwiler. For years they've been honing a classic Stones-y sounding rock & roll sound with just the right amount of twang and fiddle in it. There’s songs about drinking, songs about heartbreak and iffy relationships. They are one of those perfect bar bands that make your Saturday night just right.
I’m adding “Drinkin’,” “Magazine,” “Storms & Gasoline,” and “Stop Breaking Down” to rotation.

Joel DaSilva - Durty Howlin' Blues
Good God. On their latest album, Durty Howlin' Blues, Joel DaSilva and the Howl take the hyper-viper-jump blues to place you never thought it could go. Whether they are doing a heavy metal blues rock number with gospel under tones or a swinging hep-cat dance number, or a swaggering roadhouse blues number, you know it's going to be a hot, blistering sound that will burn away your crappy day.
I'm adding "Come Undone," "Love My Gal," and my favorite, "Rockin' and Rollin'."
