Nostalgia is a powerful thing and when it comes to music, their is no subject that gets more time on tape. From the sorrow of regret to the cotton candy haze of childhood memories, musicians have been recollecting on the past since the first voice was raised in harmony.
So this week's Tuesday Double Feature is dedicated to that desire built into us all to return to a different time. Here's to remembering some good memories or burying some bad ones and the diverse soundtrack to accompany you on your journey.
Austin Lucas - "Thunder Rail"
Fittingly set in a basement where all memories seem to dwell.
Born with a coal miner’s soul, the music of Austin Lucas has a certain honesty to it, as though told through the revealing golden light of bourbon. If you don't have any plans tonight you can catch him opening for Reverend Payton's Big Damn Band at Dante's. Amazing live, it's well worth being a little bit tired tomorrow morning.
Butch Walker & The Black Widows - "Summer Of '89"
Bryan Adams has got nothing on these boys.
A long time veteran of the music scene Butch Walker and his band The Black Widows have earned their stripes on the road and the studio. Having just released their latest album The Spade, the band is preparing to head out on tour soon. Unfortunately their isn't a show scheduled for our neck of the woods but it's still early. So keep you ears pealed.
