Americana Boogie new releases for the week of Jan. 15th... Whitehorse, Erin McKeown, Jeff Black, J.J. Cale...

ERIN McKEOWN
Manifestra
(TVP)

Long held separate, McKeown's personal and political passions merge in the instrumentation that defines the album. Saxophones double guitars. Vintage synths merge with strings as keyboards mirror vocal lines. Loops and live drums unite to push songs forward. Special guests include Anais Mitchell, Sean Hayes, David Wax Museum, Ryan Montbleau. The album closes with "Baghdad to the Bayou" a song written by text with friend Rachel Maddow. This is her 7th abum, 2nd on her own label. The CD includes a bonus disc of Erin performing the entire album solo acoustic.

WHITEHORSE
The Fate of the World Depends on This Kiss (Six Shooter)

The classic tale of musical romance continues for Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland, the husband and wife duo behind Whitehorse. As a whole, the album reveals the range of creative possibility that only expands as Whitehorse develops and focuses their sound. Song by song, the record takes surprising turns; while each track confidently bears Whitehorse’s signature blistering guitar work and love-knotted vocals, their willingness to take risks and ability to pull them off makes for captivating listening. With savage talent and tender hearts, Whitehorse expertly plays both lion and lamb on The Fate of This World Depends on This Kiss.
