Shakey Graves

"The Waters" b / w "Roll the Bones" (The Good Music Club)

Texas Platters

Neat keepsake of the rising local's primal folk-blues, recorded "live from the Good Music Club" at the North Door last August, with a woodcut-like cover illo by Austin bass and scene vet Chepo Peña. Garage-y, fuzz-strum as backed by his one-man tambourine shake and suitcase bass drum percussion, Alejandro Rose-Garcia's mountain holler grits pleasingly throaty with falsetto accents. His original B-side, almost a mini-suite wired by a goosed riff, beats a stripped pulse at multiple speeds, the buggy vocal recalling ATX's seminal one-man band, Scott H. Biram.
