Red Hands Black Feet

New music from the post-rock group Red Hands Black Feet, called We Must Fall Forever if We Survive. These guys are one of our favorite bands out of Boise. The new album is quite magical, there are so many moments that you just get lost in the movement. Red Hands Black Feet create a sense of falling forever, but making it okay to do so. We Must Fall Forever if We Survive is a real epic of an album, with beautiful songs. You got to listen to it.

The Grizzled Mighty

New music from the rocking duo out of Seattle. It’s The Grizzled Mighty with a new LP called Closed Knuckle Jaw. The Grizzled Mighty is a powerhouse blues-rock band from the Pacific Northwest. With just a guitarist/vocalist and a drummer, there’s a bunch of sound that comes out from the two rockers. The new album Closed Knuckle Jaw is packed full of party anthems, that have a sound similar to early Black Keys. The album starts off with a heavy hitter “Chantael” which immediately has a super catchy guitar riff. My favorite track from the album has to be “Miles Of Cocaine.” It is real gritty and has a wicked awesome guitar solo, along with singing about a bunch of cocaine. This band is a must see live as well, so check them out.
