I was trying to think of a way to describe this and then it came to me: if the music of Haley Bonar (slow folk-rock) and the music of Josh Rouse (catchy country-rock) had a musical baby, that baby would be the music of Rocky Votolato. Strange analogies aside, his new album, Makers, is full of winners, some more winning than others. The one I have down there in MP3 form is pure, unadulterated winner (you’ll have to right-click & save target as).
P.S. Wouldn’t it be cool if music could have babies?
