“Trouble Trouble” from Shinyribs’ I Got Your Medicine has got an old-time revival gospel/rock with great hook, great horns, and old-time piano. It’s a joy to listen to.
A good song transcends genre. Shinyribs covers George Michael’s “Freedom 90” and makes it his own. This speaks well both to the George Michael’s skill as a songwriter and Shinyribs interpretation.
This is the title track from Shinyribs new album. I like the boozy, swaggery New Orlean’s feel to the tune.
The lo-fi, blown-out R&B album Jake La Botz album, the Old Crow Medicine Show’s Dylan cover, the new soul album from Don Bryant, & the cowpunk Sarah Shook album.
I’ve got an old school blues cover of Libba Cotten by Guy Davis and Fabrizio Poggi, honky-tonk from Matt Urmy, more country from that Jason Eady album, a hand clapper from Valerie June, rock & roll from Killbuck and the new string band album from Joseph Huber.
An early Leon Redbone track, a classic Percy Sledge tune, the new Tift Merritt album, traveling music from Marty Stuart, and the new Valerie June album.
Use your money to buy the album or save up to see Shinyribs live? That’s a tough call for I Got Your Medicine by Shinyribs

Have you voted for the Americana Music Show in the 2016 Podcast Awards? I like the fact that Kevin Russell has the guts to not re-gender the original. Screen clip:
