    Loteria (album release), Rattlesnake Milk, Ryan Sambol, the Honky Tonk Machine

    With sliding Telecaster twang on top of a nostalgic garage rock sound, Loteria plays like a honky-tonk’s rock & roll house band. Including members of the Motel Ball Band, Berkshire Hounds, Bad Lovers, and country act JD Clark’s Stuck in the Mud Band, the Austin fourpiece rings in the release of Texas Toast, their first LP since 2014’s Party Favors. Dark country act Rattlesnake Milk and ex-Strange Boys songwriter Ryan Sambol open up along with newer outfit the Honky Tonk Time Machine. Admissions is free, which feels so good.

    Shemekia Copeland

    “Clotilda’s On Fire,” opening Shemekia’s Copeland’s latest LP, Uncivil War, recounts the burning of the last slave ship in Alabama in 1859. The song is less an ending than a beginning of reckoning with our American past and the wounds that still bleed in the present, capped in the title track’s refrain: “Nobody wins an uncivil war.” Nominated for a Best Contemporary Blues Album Grammy this year, the Will Kimbrough-produced platter pinnacles Copeland’s poignant songwriting and powerful vocals with A-list contributions including Jason Isbell, Jerry Douglas, Sam Bush, and Duane Eddy. A timeless testament to our times.
