The latest instalment of the “Shindig! Radio Show”. Tune in now.
Acclaimed Portland, Oregon rock quintet Blitzen Trapper are set to release new album All Across This Land on October 2nd via Lojinx in Europe (on Vagrant in the US). The band have built a solid reputation unafraid to take chances by incorporating a vast array of influences from Americana to psychedelic, to rock and to folk.
Shindig! think this sample sounds great.

Wow, after the delights of yesterday’s country-rock sensations GospebeacH here’s a passive new tune from Promised Land Sound; a fine Nashville based band featuring members of The Paperhead and Fly Golden Eagle. This track is taken from their forthcoming second album For Use And Delight issued by Paradise Of Bachelors on October 2nd.
Brent Rademaker and his GospelbeacH gang (including the brilliant Neal Casal, who you can read about in the coming issue’s The Chris Robinson Brotherhood feature) debut’s album is due this autumn. We’ll be covering this then and maybe a lengthy Beachwood Sparks feature too. Let the sunshine flow!
BALL is hard-rock from hell. Formed by the mysterious Syré Ball – previously known as a strong force behind some extremely secret and subversive underground occult groups in northern Europe – Syré has now decided to dedicate his life to music and life outside of the covens and black magic orders. Backed by his two older brothers they form a fierce and fearsome power trio. They also have a close relationship to the mighty Swedish band Skogen Brinner. Apart from banging on their instruments Ball list their main interests as horror comics and monster model kits. Some band members are currently on probation so for the moment touring is not a possibility.
I’ll Remember will include remastered versions of the band’s two studio albums, Taste and On The Boards, as well as bonus tracks.
Additionally, the box set contains previously unreleased live concert recordings from Stockholm’s Live at Konserthuset, off-air at the Paris Theatre in London as part of John Peel’s live Top Gear sessions and Woburn Abbey Festival; demo recordings made in July 1967 at Belfast’s Maritime Hotel; sleevenotes including rare and previously unseen photographs.
Shindig! love talking to Ralph and haven’t done so in a while, so it was nice to have Jon invited back on to let the listeners know what’s been happening. Click on the below image to play the 30 minute interview.
