J.Tex & The Volunteers New Album Out January 30

J.Tex & The Volunteers – Old Ways vs New Days

See the brand new video from the song “Ship Coming In” from the album

The final result is ten finely crafted songs, recorded together with guest musician Bebe Risenfors (who played with Tom Waits), and of course the Volunteers, Tue Lund Christensen on bass and Jason Bedard on drums.

J.Tex was born in Detroit and raised in Denmark, he feels quite at home in both in the United States, where he has many musical collaborators, and in Copenhagen, where he lives today.

He is very much part of the Southern Swedish rock’n’roll scene, where a love of music, vintage American cars, old motorcycles, vintage clothing and the shine of well greased hair is very much a way of life.

The best of USA, Denmark and Sweden come together on this, the coolest album release this winter!

press2_lo”A strange highly original, cleverly constructed and
loose take on the genre.”
– Mike Morrison

”Heptown has a truly impressive feel for roots and
rockabilly music and the know how to pick their band.
J.Tex & The Volunteers is another great Heptown act.”
– Buster Fayte

”At times it’s like Seasick Steve meets Cab Calloway, others it’s more Tom Waits meets
Maurice Chevalier. It’s certainly different, but most importantly, it’s wonderful.”
– Music People

The Don Darlings – new single/video

October 10, 2014 Comments off

JohnnyBodeHepTown Records just signed The Don Darlings to the label – a great Swedish band from Gothenburg with an American singer.

A new single/video ”If You Can’t Be Good” is out October 10. The song is from the self titled second album that will be out October 24 on Heptown Records.

The Don Darlings hailed sound has been associated with the genre called Dark Southern Americana, where Sergio Leone and Quentin Tarantino bloody knuckles over direction while Waits and Cave complete the soundtrack. Text and music become intertwined and every song proposes the possibility of a new cinematic experience.

A New Video And Album Out Now From Finnegan’s Hell

September 26, 2014 Comments off

Finnegan’s Hell – “Jar Of Porter” from the new album “Drunk Sick And Blue” out today Sep. 26.

Sweden’s biggest music magazine, Gaffa, about the new video from Finnegan’s Hell:

“The Swedish powerlifter Johnny Wahlqvist makes quite a performance in the new video from Finnegan’s Hell. Johnny knocked back twelve pints of porter within an hour, and would have continued drinking even more, had his stomach only allowed it. The hamburger and fries that he had consumed right before the video shoot suddenly made its way out of Johnny, and the production assistant had to clean vomit off the floor. The leather outfit that Johnny is wearing in one of the scenes used to belong to the world famous, Swedish discus thrower, Richy Bruch, who wore it in honor of Native Americans in the United States. A must-see!”
